LAND is happy to present the solo exhibition The lights are on but no one’s home by the Catalonia-based artist Andrew Birk. The lights are on but no one’s home features recent watercolor works by Birk presented on nearly every wall in every room of LAND. From the entranceway and main room, to the attic and bathrooms, Birk’s watercolors occupy spaces that were previously inaccessible to visitors, expanding the physical scope of the gallery space within the house. Birk’s small paintings on paper feature loose but controlled brushwork representing a dynamic myriad of subject matter, from a small seemingly glowing fetus in the womb to a lush infinitely deep countryside landscape. Birk’s paintings present compositions that appear at once like slapdash snapshots of personally significant scenes, while others pointedly present legible cultural symbols, creating a threshold of intimacies that are both formally direct and peculiarly clouded.
