@ Metro Pictures
— 

I think that 
illusiveness has a 
lot to do with 
experience. I’m 
trying to translate 
to the viewer that 
sense of how 
your experience 
of something is 
always evolving.

Born:
 
1976, Baltimore. 

The exhibition:
 
Is the New York-
based artist's 
second solo at 
Metro Pictures – 
influenced by 
textiles, quilt 
making & weaving, 
VanDerBeek presents
large 
complexly
colored 
abstract
photographs 
alongside
minimal, 
totemic
sculptures 
made of
pigmented 
concrete
and painted 
plaster
and wood. 


Poetic reference:
 
E. E. Cummings. 
I was studying 
his poetry and the 
various stages of 
his manuscripts 
thinking about how 
his work translates 
his experiences 
into this beautiful, 
succinct — but 
also abstract and 
layered language.
