Seeing J. J. Peet’s Shadow In The New Yorker

J. J. Peet, Coverup’s, 2010, 13 by 23-3/4 inches, acrylic on panel

The New Yorker reviews J. J. Peet’s exhibit, Shadows, currently on display at On Stellar Rays gallery on the Lower East Side. Peet is a faculty member at 92Y School of Arts, where he teaches ceramics.

At first glance, his current exhibition of small improvisational-looking paintings would seem to indicate a major change of direction. But closer inspection reveals that the artist’s signature themes—the investigation of power and the transmission of information—are still here. “Flash Action,” which depicts a point-and-shoot camera painted over a roughly rendered gray background, and “Station to Station,” in which a vaguely urban landscape is enclosed in a circle resembling an eyehole, speak to the ubiquity of the media and surveillance systems.

Time Out New York has a slide show featuring some of the work, and named it one of ten “must-see” art shows. The show runs until October 24. More information can be found here.
