future cats career box

NAP Projects presents FUTURE CATS CAREER BOX, a look at six artists united through their bold, energetic use of line. Opening August 22nd and running through September 9th, FUTURE CATS CAREER BOX includes works on paper from James Rosa, Jamie Berube, Linda Haskell, and Garrol Gayden, paintings by Jesus Salas, and ceramic works from Sara Malpass.

FUTURE CATS CAREER BOX seeks to answer the timeless question: what are words, shapes, and lines without the meaning we assign to them? How do we create order in our own lives? Garrol Gayden’s layers of text meld into renderings of his lifelong love, Coney Island, at times becoming opaque and unreadable. Sara Malpass’s ceramic wall text pieces present the artist’s own words in her own hand, and the viewer is open to interpret each text in the way that they please. James Rosa’s geometric drawings show an appreciation and careful consideration of composition, and are reminiscent of vintage TV sets, radios, and other simplified machinery. For Jesus Salas, lists of numbers layered over abstract paintings become an attempt to record and order his surrounding environment. Making his New York debut, Jamie Berube’s Towers of Colors series are reminiscent of DNA strands, and the lists and drawings on the reverse of each work show this ordering system applied in text. Linda Haskell transforms existing imagery into a frenzy of line and tone, as seen in her Horses series.

Based in Brooklyn, NY, James Rosa (b. 1965) and Garrol Gayden (b. 1960) work at LAND Gallery. Linda Haskell (b. 1957) works out of Tampa, FL’s Pyramid, Inc. Art Center and Jamie Berube (b. 1991) hails from State College, PA. Jesus Salas (b. 1991) and Sara Malpass (b.1967) are both members of NIAD Art Center in Richmond, CA. 

Brooklyn, NY-based NAP Projects, established in 2017, represents and promotes artists who work in non-traditional contexts, from studio-day habilitation programs to community workshops and beyond.
