Opening group exhibition by Luther Kroman and George Leo Sanders Curated by Niki Schur Narula

A continuation of Better Luck Next Time, an exhibition previously staged in Berlin, Germany, Locals Only incorporates newer works and repositions the work within the context of the rapidly developing Asian metropolis.

In their works, both Sanders and Kroman employ the visual language of athletics, surrounding these images of sports and games with a sort of wistful humor. Many pieces feature isolated images, scenes that, despite having been removed from context, are instantly recognizable. These are blackboards, gym mats, baseball diamond lines that, in their reference to childhood, create a strong nostalgia; however, the works also succeed in pulling this world of games into the present, making them the scene of a dialogue about the ways in which we choose to spend our time.

Both Sanders’s and Kroman’s canvases are devoid of biological forms and yet thoroughly imbued with a sense of the human. This simultaneous absence/presence adds to the bittersweet humor of the works, a quality seen in pieces like Kroman’s Erased or Sanders’s X’s and O’s. Through both the subject matter and the artists’ deliberate technique, the canvases become literal and figurative fields of human activity.
