NEW YORK, NY.- Paul Kasmin Gallery announced its representation of the artist Roxy Paine. An exhibition is planned at Paul Kasmin Gallery for the 2016-17 season.

Paine's substantial body of work spans the monumental and the microscopic - from the organic tones of nature to the cold, clean lines of the machine world. Critically, however, his works never rest in one of these spheres, but rather fuse them together to create pieces which confound, provoke, demonstrate and question all at once. Through grappling with events of nature and industry, control and chaos, Paine’s work highlights a perpetual irresolution of these altered realities and how we experience the world around us.

Paine continues to reinvent and challenge the relationship between idea and material translation. He has recently found great success with his full scale dioramas depicting architectural manifestations of primal emotional states, and we see the culmination of, and yet evolution away from, his extensive body of work. Longstanding themes are developed, which further articulate his personal philosophy and his ultimate embrace of skepticism and paradox.

Gallery owner Paul Kasmin notes his deep-rooted admiration for the artist, saying “I first became familiar with Roxy about 20 years ago when I had my first gallery and he was showing in SoHo. Since, I’ve had a longstanding appreciation for his work and in the past five years an increasing friendship.”

Exhibited internationally since the early 1990s, Paine is the recipient of numerous awards, including the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, and the Trustees Award for an Emerging Artist by the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. His work has been installed in prominent venues including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York’s Central Park, Madison Square Park, and, in 2009, a site specific installation for the rooftop garden of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. His work is included in various collections including the Museum of Modern Art New York, Museum of Modern Art San Francisco, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles. Recent solo exhibtiions include Villa Panza, Vernese, Italy, and the Nelson-Atkins Museum, Kansas City.

Paine will be installing a new sculptural piece in San Francisco in 2018 to coincide with the opening of the Central Subway. This dramatic piece, in the artist's words, will be “an elegant line connecting earth to sky, people to underground systems and sculpture to city.”
