April – June 2017
Tops Gallery, Memphis
With a performance of Self Portrait as My Mother, as an Actress, as a Painter, as a Stranger, featuring Terri Lynn Phillips
Tops Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by Jonathan VanDyke, the New York-based artist's first showing in Memphis. In his paintings, sculptures, photographs, and performance, VanDyke utilizes notions of displacement as a method for making and presenting his work. The idea of what a painting might be is reoriented and pushed into unforeseen directions. Each work is the result of intensive research and material process developed over a decade.
