On Thursday November 3, 2022, Dyadic | Rex Hausmann & Gabriel Delgado opens at New River Fine Art from 6 pm - 9 pm. Curated into two solo one-man exhibitions, Dyadic exhibits two artists with completely different narratives and visual aesthetics. Hausmann, is seen as a pop artist with an autobiographical narrative accompanied by bold and bright colors, which seems to completely contrast the black and white artwork of Delgado's mathematical equations. However, both have micro and macro relations in their work.
Hausmann ties in his friends and family to showcase history, culture, and moments in time, that are constructed to reflect his personal life as well as spread messages of the greater good of humanity. Delgado, on the other hand, tells of social and economic news stories through the perspective of algebra. Whereby each equation has a topic broken down into linguistic and mathematic ledgers with the use of colorless tones.
Macro narratives about social and economic issues that he deconstructs into smaller details that can be read by anyone. Consequently, both artists convey messages about human connections within society whether it be personally or globally. The contrasting narratives and visual aesthetics between the artists offer a unique perspective for viewers to explore and compare while also broadening their horizon on what art can truly mean, i.e. Hausmann’s new metamodern genre of artmaking and Delgado’s conceptual PEMDAS driven equations.
Rex Hausmann, a Texas-based artist, often draws on famous writings and other Art Historical Cannons to help define his own current Metamodernism Practice of Contemporary Art. Hausmann’s unique and self-formulated genre of artmaking features an amalgamation of friends, family, and happily harnessed mundanity of everyday life into the artist’s complex visual narratives that are gaining national recognition.
Gabriel Delgado’s PEMDAS driven, and conceptually solvable Order of Operations mathematical equations bring to light the elegance of numerical and text-driven logic via an expressive scientific chalkboard aesthetic. As an Artist, Delgado creates themed artwork that explores aspects of contemporary culture and events, ranging from Science, Economy, Decentralized Finance and Economic Markets, Human Emotions, Social Reform, and other relevant topics.
