work > Those that Blossom, and the Blossomless

Aicon Gallery is proud to present Those that Blossom, and the Blossomless, an exhibition of new work by Nitin Mukul. In this body of work, Mukul utilizes a variety of media - painting, photography, and video - to create works that reference images from the natural world, and the man-made. Representational images are flattened and layered into a complex, abstract grounds; while fluid paintings move beyond abstraction, seeming to replicate processes either primordial or chemical. Mukul’s videos are made by applying paint in layers of ice, and recording the melting and transformation that ensues. The process is entropic, out of the artist’s direct control, and exists in a space between the analog and the digital. The resulting images appear at times cosmic in scope. Altogether, these pieces elegantly question the distinctions between figuration and abstraction, between the natural and the manmade, between generation and destruction.
