Brandon Ballengée: Collapse: The Cry of Silent Forms
Listing information courtesy of:
The New York Times
Although Mr. Ballengée, trained as both an artist and a biologist, and has been a presence in and around the New York City art scene for several years, this is his first big local gallery solo, and it’s a strong one. In it, art and science, age-old partners, meet, linked by a connective tissue of ecological consciousness. Given his subject, Mr. Ballengée could have gotten away with a didactic show and tell, but he’s gone much further, delivering visual drama and textured moral thinking. This is art for adults: factual, disturbing, beautiful.
