Brooks Hudson Thomas is pleased to announce the exhibition of new work by Los Angeles artist, Jamison Carter and Brooklyn architects, Stefanie Brechbueler and Robert Andrew Highsmith of WORKSTEAD.

Jamison Carter works idiosyncratically with a small muster of rubber stamps fabricated from his own designs. Working with inks and other pigments and his magazine of mark making tools, Carter constructs remarkable abstract images, on Tyvek, that recall the microscopic natural structures of germs or viruses, (and other critters) presented on a grand scale. Worked in three dimensions, with the same resolve, Carter’s large painted wire structures possess the same biotic intrigue. The imagined systems and eukaryotic forms that Carter pictures, the product of a process he has manufactured, as well as the wire structures he hand builds, index the complex intelligence of their maker as well as the viewer. For his first exhibition at SPECIFIC, Carter is showing a 7 x 9 foot wall-hanging sculpture and a large drawing installed in situ on the north wall above the entry.

WORKSTEAD, the architectural team of Robert Andrew Highsmith and Stefanie Brechbueler, compliment their practice with their “exciting machinery”. Using repurposed-industrial components, O.C. White joints and vintage Hubbell sockets, WORKSTEAD builds new and elegant lighting fixtures for the 21st Century. Thoughtfully engineered, and creatively apprehended, the lighting transcends the sum of their parts with scale, color and graphic invention. Highsmith and Brechbueler are bringing a grand 6-arm chandelier and a collection of wall mounted lamps to Los Angeles for their west-coast début.

so excited to see this new work!
