A new show, “Post-Pop,” opens at Low Gallery (3778 30th Street) in North Park on Friday, November 15. The show is a collaboration between painter, Sean Brannan, and sculptor Jonathan Entler, curated by Meegan Nolan and owner Douglas Trieschman.

“Merging the modernist design aesthetic of Entler and the minimalist work of Brannan will create a swank, 60s hotel lobby effect in our space,” says Trieschman.

Entler’s work is in ceramics. He sculpts modernist light fixtures which are as functional as they are decorative, lighting the spaces in which they’re displayed.

Where Entler’s work is a study in pale shades of light, Brannan’s paintings explore a bold color pallette.

Brannan says, “I make ‘Response Curves’ out of a photo fabric material. It’s a commercial fabric-paper used for printing. I’ve repurposed it by painting on it, cutting it up, and collaging it. ‘Response Curves’ is a new series. Typically, I do more vertical geometries, lines or strips of paper, and these are circular. On the wall [at ‘Post Pop’], I’ve actually painted ‘Response Curves’ in a giant version of what I would make with the collages.

“I liken ‘Response Curves’ to rods and cones. Not just the rods and cones in our eyes, but also because my paintings recede into a tunnel effect and also give the appearance of coming straight at the viewer. The term “response curves” refers to an actual measurement of the way our eyes measure light, so I have tried to tie light and color theory into the artwork as a kind of literal interpretation.”

Brannan continues, “[Jonathan Entler’s sculptures] are these very ethereal ceramic lights. The basic idea behind the show is that the minimalistic, white gallery space will go along with his sculptures, and that will juxtapose with this very illusory artwork of mine that almost has a three-dimensional quality.”

Additionally, since Entler’s medium is light projection, his artwork will contribute to the lighting in the studio.

“[Entler] has a few hanging, chandelier pieces that will take over at least some of the lighting in the gallery. That should be a pretty cool effect. It’s a small gallery that’s very well lit.”

Does the unpredictable nature of the light in the gallery concern the painter?

“I’m not too worried,” Brannan says. “My pieces are vibrant and they can create different effects under different lighting conditions.”

“Post-Pop” will remain open at Low Gallery through December 9th.
