New York City's Scott Teplin at Seven Arts Gallery

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New York City’s Scott Teplin at Seven Arts Gallery

RIDGEFIELD, CT (June 8, 2013) – Seven Arts Gallery is pleased to present Whiplash, by New York-based artist Scott Teplin. The exhibit, the first solo show in Connecticut for this artist with an international reputation, will feature his ink and watercolor works on paper. The opening reception of Whiplash will be held at the gallery on June 22, 2013 from 6-8pm. The exhibit will be on view through July and is free and open to the public.

Teplin is an obsessive drawer known for creating meticulously rendered drawings in which real world objects morph into a fantastical amalgamation of discordant forms, shapes, and colors. For this series, he collages found photographs of horrifying crash scenes and then redraws these compositions until the hard metal lines transform into softer shapes that more closely resemble organic objects. Ultimately about control, the pieces present an alternate interpretation of actual events–one in which documentation is transformed and transmuted to create a new reality that is as whimsical as it is disconcerting.

Scott Teplin (b.1972) received his M.F.A. from the University of Washington-Seattle and his B.S. in Fine Art from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  In addition to solo shows in New York and Paris, he has exhibited extensively in and outside of the United States. Teplin’s art has appeared in or been reviewed by The New York Times, The New Yorker, ARTFORUM, and Art in America, among many other publications.  Numerous private and institutional collections hold his work, including The New Museum, NYC; Brooklyn Museum of Art; the Smithsonian Institution; Walker Art Center; Museum of Modern Art, NY and MOMA, SF; New York Public Library; Stanford University; and Yale University. He recently completed a major commission from Johns Hopkins Children’s Hospital.  His children’s book The Clock Without a Face is being adapted into a major motion picture through Paramount Pictures/Montecito Films.
