Press Release



Carl Louie is pleased to present Discontinuous Flashes of Energy, an exhibition by Annabeth Marks and Matthew Schrader. 
The exhibition is comprised of collaborative photographic works by Marks and Schrader as well as works made individually.  

The photographic works serve as a link, occupying a space between the two artists individual practices. 
The images examine Datura plants, a species of poisonous vespertine flowering plants, 
and are a part of an ongoing project the artists began making together in 2016.

Included are five 4 x 6 inch color c-prints that have absorbed and been altered by red, yellow, and orange pigments. 
Stacks of unaltered color c-prints sit on a ledge and two large photographs printed on 10’ long sheets of 
newsprint fold and drape over themselves on the floor. 

Three works by Marks are included in this exhibition; a painting on unstretched collaged canvas, a painting on 
collaged and layered paper, and a painted and deconstructed leather jacket.  The sculptures made by 
Schrader utilize steel, wood, electrical wire and the existing architecture.
