About this event

On Sunday, October 10, from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm, you're invited to join Kaiser Gallery for the closing reception and artist talk featuring the local artists of The Weight of Time. Join us for an insightful look into the work of Danny Greene and Haumed Rahmani.

The Weight of Time is an exhibition that explores the surrealism of a very real global pandemic through introspective works. The novel virus COVID-19 threw the world as we knew it into a situation that we've never seen before. The global pandemic and the shutdowns that followed created disorientating challenges for various people to navigate in different ways while further exposing broken government infrastructure and community ramifications for a world that was not prepared to stop.

Presenting the works of Chad Eby, Danny Greene, Andrew Ellis Johnson, Matt Milligan, Haumed Rahmani, and Nowhere Mountain.

Danny Greene

Danny Greene (°1977, Honolulu ) makes paintings and paintings. By demonstrating the omnipresent lingering of a ‘corporate world’, his paintings references post-punk theory as well as the avant-garde or the degeneracy of the post-modern world. His paintings are often classified as part of the new romantic movement because of the desire for the local in the unfolding globalized technocracy. However, this reference is not intentional, as this kind of art is part of the collective memory. By referencing romanticism, grand-guignolesque black humour and symbolism, he creates work through labour-intensive processes which can be seen explicitly as a personal exorcism ritual. They are inspired by a nineteenth-century tradition of works, in which an ideal of ‘Fulfilled Absence’ was seen as the pinnacle. His works demonstrate how life extends beyond its own subjective limits and often tells a story about the effects of global cultural interaction over the latter half of the twentieth century. It challenges the binaries we continually reconstruct between Self and Other, between our own ‘cannibal’ and ‘civilized’ selves. By choosin mainly formal solutions, he tries to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on subjective associations and formal parallels, which incite the viewer to make new personal associations. His works are based on formal associations which open a unique poetic vein. Multilayered images arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is questioned. Danny Greene currently lives and works in Cleveland, Ohio.

Haumed Rahmani

Straddling creative, scientific, and digital frameworks, Haumed Rahmani spends their time thinking of questions that lead to better questions. Their code is being used by the likes of Cornell University and the Max Planck Institute, and they’re slated to present at the International Liquid Crystal Conference in 2022. With work ranging from microscope imaging to generative weaving and projection art, Haumed is foremost a toolbuilder and communicator. They currently focus their art on using math, light & time as ingredients, and on building out their open-source design framework, the aeiyou glitchkit, which was used to create this piece (and can be found online.)
