Theory Of Machines

Kohn Gallery is pleased to present Bay Area artist Dean Byington’s first solo show at the gallery, titled Theory of Machines. This exhibition will feature nine complex new oil paintings in the main gallery space. Byington work references religious conflict and terrorism in the Middle East and Western Europe alongside the damage wrought by human processes such as climate change and urban sprawl into previously uninhabited regions. On view will be the painting, Theory Of Machines (Grand Saturn), the third and most complex version of the Saturn series, which engages with issues of humanity’s impact on the world. This painting references Edwin Church’s The Heart Of The Andes re-configured within screens and panels above a dystopian landscape, inverting Church’s attempt to produce a “pure” landscape–a monumental imagining of the untouched environment.
