The East Hampton Star: The Art Scene

Next at Fireplace
“Chop Wood, Carry Water,” a show of work by Erika Keck, Nick Theobald, and Michael Bevilacqua, will open at the Fireplace Project in Springs tomorrow and run through July 21. An opening reception will take place Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m.

Ms. Keck uses paint, canvas, and stretchers or steel bars in unconventional combinations that aggressively deconstruct the medium. Beeswax, linen, and wood, Mr. Theobald’s materials, result in complex, tactile surfaces. Images from both popular culture and contemporary painting create a blend of high and low culture in the work of Mr. Bevilacqua.
