1/9unosunove presents "How to Operate in a Dark Room," a major series of new works by New York-based artist Jonathan VanDyke. The six paintings in the exhibition represent a level of mastery in the artist’s sewn paintings. Hundreds of pieces of canvas and textiles, including denim and t-shirt fabric, are stained and painted through elaborate studio processes that unfold over many months, and then cut and sewn together in complex patterns. Many of the works are backed with brightly-colored, dyed linen, and with photos taken from the artist’s archive of photographs.
