Prof. Mike Cloud’s “Bad Faith and Universal Technique” opens Thursday, September 11

September 8, 2014

Dear Faculty and Students,I am having a show at Thomas Erben gallery this week. The opening is Thursday and I hope you will all be able to attend. The invitation is below.


Mike Cloud

Removed Individual, 2013. Oil on canvas with stretcher bars, 10 x 20 feet.

Mike Cloud

Bad Faith and Universal Technique

September 11 – October 18, 2014
Opening reception: Thursday, September 11, 6-8:30 pm

Thomas Erben is very excited to present the gallery’s first solo exhibition with painter Mike Cloud (b. 1974, Chicago, IL). In a new group of works ranging widely in size, vivid formal aspects combine with an urgent, visceral exploration of history, bringing into conversation the perspective of history’s survivors, along with its losers and winners.

Mike Cloud’s paintings break out of the format of the medium and take on irregular shapes and sculptural qualities; they invite the viewer into their own creation by sharing the experience of the physical forces involved. Canvas fastened to the front of stretcher bars and then primed creates a tension that makes wood bend under the pull of staples and rabbit-skin glue. Brushes wiped off along the edges of exposed stretchers highlight the connection between raw materials and image. Asymmetrical or multi-cornered stretchers, coarsely conjoined with gaps at the corners, emphasize the ‘objectness’ of each painting. The creation process is extended into a state where the work remains alive with innate forces.

Working within his long-developed visual vocabulary, Cloud reexamines historical phenomena and appropriates emotionally loaded symbols. The artist picks apart his subject matter and puts it back together in new configurations – often using painted words as load-bearing elements – collaging his chosen components into an intuitive imprint; an extended process compressed into a single object. Each work becomes a vessel for a certain set of symbols, channeling one particular strain of history.

The multi-panel painting Removed Individual, for example, forms two enormous stars of David, one pink and one yellow, referencing the badges used to single out homosexuals and Jews in the Nazi persecutions. Parallel narratives of survival are set forth, reflecting how marginalized groups come to terms with an often painful past. The result is both highly personal and impersonal; particular words are included, in the form of a list surrounded by maze-like representations of hands, feet and genitals, in something resembling an altarpiece. As Cloud forms charged symbols and fractured abstraction into language, we are forced to reevaluate the familiar, while being refused any easy explanations.

After studying at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Mike Cloud earned his MFA from Yale in 2003. His work has been extensively shown, at venues such as MoMA P.S.1, Marianne Boesky Gallery, White Columns, Max Protetch, Apexart, and was included in Frequency at The Studio Museum in Harlem in 2006. In addition to numerous reviews, his work was part of Painting Abstraction by Bob Nickas, Phaidon Press (2009). Cloud is currently an assistant professor at Brooklyn College/CUNY in New York.

Volunteer opportunity for artists: Restoration Health Fair – 8/23/14

August 18, 2014

I hope this email finds you in good health and great spirits. My name is Angelea Sprinkle and I am the Community Outreach Liaison for Restoration Church of Jesus Apostolic.
On Saturday, August 23, 2014, Restoration Church of Jesus Apostolic will proudly host our 2nd Annual Community Health Fair & Family Day. Our church is located at 44 Berriman Street, Brooklyn, NY 11208 (between Liberty & Atlantic Avenues) However the event will be held at the East New York MEDISYS Health Network facility located at 3080 Atlantic Avenue (corner of Berriman Street). We are fortunate to be partnering with MEDISYS and we will utilize their very spacious parking lot to host the health fair.

We are in need of face painters for the children attending the festivities. Children are always very excited and happy to step into the magical world of the character that has been adorned on their precious little faces and we would love to partner with you to make that a reality for them. We are not in a position where we can monetarily reward any volunteers, however we will supply necessary art equipment (face painting kits) and letters of recognition/appreciation for any students/alumni who are willing to volunteer their time.

The event will be from 10am – 5pm. Our goal is to improve the quality of life through a balance of Christian outreach, education and positive community activities for members of the East New York and other under serviced communities.

We intend to provide a day filled with fun, health awareness & screenings, healthy snacks, lunch, music, games, and participation prizes. In addition, we will also have valuable resources for community residents such as tax services, housing assistance, immigration services, SNAP & health care information and much more. We are hosting a blood drive and we will also give out school supplies for preschool to college students. While our overall goal is to raise health awareness, cater to the elderly/youth and offer much needed resources to all we will also have a prayer corner and offer the patrons the opportunity to connect or reconnect with thier spritual needs.

Having your students and/or alumni at our event will be a wonderful addition to the scheduled health screenings and resources for the patrons of the East New York community. Please contact me at your earliest convenience for further discussion on making this event a huge success. I can be reached via email or at (347) 570 – 9987 anytime. Please feel free to forward this information to your blog, website, facebook or eblast notification system.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and your participation in our venture.

Peace and blessings,
