GalleristNY Exhibition Review

Despite its title, and with the exception of Jared Buckhiester’s watercolor typology of half-naked football players and one magisterially constructed, transparently explicit Tom of Finland sketch, none of the work in this taut summer grouping of obsessive drawing and collage is particularly concerned with evasion or desire—except insofar as anything can be an evasion, and everything, once you’re looking for it, is desire.

Feature Inc. is a contemporary art gallery exhibiting painting, drawing, photography and sculpture by established and emerging American and international artists in New York City since 1988.

Feature opened on April Fool’s Day 1984, in a second floor space at 340 West Huron St., Chicago. In August 1988, the gallery moved to NYC and opened in October at 484 Broome St. Soon after the move, the 340 W. Huron building burned to the ground; Feature escaped just in time. Feature relocated to 76 Greene St. in September 1993, and became Feature Inc. in January 1994. The move to 530 W. 25 St. occurred in October 1999. At all the aforementioned locations, Feature contained two or more exhibition spaces, so that several exhibitions could be presented simultaneously.

Feature Inc. reincarnated in September 2008 at 276 Bowery, delighted to be back downtown, however two days after opening the crash happened and life there was short lived.

Mid-December 2009, Feature reopened in its sixth space at 131 Allen St., still on the lower east side. For the first time in all its lives, Feature has only one exhibition space. There is as well a wall painting program for the interior wall of the entrance to the building. Life goes on.

ABSTRACT ART
“The abstract, especially in those rough sketches, is very important to me, perhaps because of my advertising background, where layout is so important. Sometimes those first few lines cut the paper into such satisfying shapes that I don’t want to go on, but I always do, adding nostrils and nipples and bootstraps until I have filled the paper up as usual.” — Tom of Finland
