The exhibition features works by Ross Bleckner, John Chamberlain, Elaine de Kooning, Willem de Kooning, Eric Fischl, Audrey Flack, Jane Freilicher, April Gornik, Robert Gwathmey, Mary Heilman, Jasper Johns, Lee Krasner, Barbara Kruger, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Motherwell, Alfonso Ossorio, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, David Salle, Andy Warhol, Jane Wilson, and many more.
As a local multidisciplinary artist, Jeff Muhs has worked in a variety of mediums and genres. In 2018, Muhs participated in Guild Hall’s annual Artist Members Exhibition where he received the Top Honors award for his concrete sculpture Callipyge, selected by Connie Choi, Associate Curator at The Studio Museum of Harlem. JEFF MUHS: THE UNCANNY VALLEY originates from a sculptural process the artist calls “Dynamic Free Casting”. By discovering this method, the artist has developed new means for forming concrete, all while embracing its inherent fluidity and weight. By pushing the physical limits of the materials as well as his own ability to manipulate, he has discovered a personal source of infinite creativity.
