WATER MILL, NY 11/12/2021Alicia Longwell, Ph.D., The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, leads an intimate and informative walkthrough of the Museum’s three recently opened solo exhibitions by artists peter campus, Virginia Jaramillo, and John Torreano. Organized by Longwell, the exhibitions feature predominantly new, never-before-seen work by artists in the seventh decade of their careers and at the top of their creative powers. The exhibitions are on view through February 27, 2022.


peter campus: when the hurly burly’s done
In a solitary pursuit during COVID-19, peter campus positioned his camera around Shinnecock Bay to create videographs that invite us to meditate on nature, while noting the gap between what the viewer perceives and what the camera records.⁠ Nine of these continuous video loops—presented on separate screens—invite the viewer to experience the sublime beauty of the natural and the ordinary.


Virginia Jaramillo: The Harmony between Line and Space
A pioneering minimalist who has practiced for more than six decades, Jaramillo creates her work from sources that span histories and cultures. The exhibition features five newly created paintings, including two monumental works, Quantum Entanglement (2019–2020) and Quanta (2021), 12-foot canvases installed directly across opposing walls, face-to-face.


John Torreano: Painting Outer Space/Inner Space, 1989 to Present
Torreano reflects on the mysteries and wonders of the cosmos in these works, which were inspired by images transmitted by the Hubble Space Telescope. The 10 large-scale paintings on plywood panels, studded with gems and wood balls, contrast the physical with the illusory.
