Skullphone + Curtis Kulig's Scripture at Mallick Williams & Co., NYC Art Opening

We look forward to your attendance.

For more than seven years, Skullphone and Kulig have productively supported each other in outdoor
installations. In Scripture, both artists’ iconic motifs are formally exemplified. Additionally, a glimpse
into their different painting styles is captured in a “window-shopping” style video installation. Although
the artworks blend seamlessly throughout the installation, each artists’ distinctive direction stands alone.

Skullphone continues his Digital Media paintings at Mallick Williams with three distinct groupings:
a series of crosses, circles, and a reflection wall. Skullphone’s paintings employ a deliberate grid
system of red, blue, and green paint on mirror-polished aluminum panels resembling LEDs. The
artist documents our world - one which is increasingly communicating with brief encounters via
technology - through a laborious painting process.
Curtis Kulig has innovated his own technique by smearing his cursive “Love Me” script on canvas as
opposed to his standard process of scrawling onto buildings, walls and streets. Overall, viewers are
reminded of the adored or hated, scratched and buffed “Love Me” seen throughout vast public spaces.
The repetition of his writing on the street is echoed in the repeated graphic and similar dimension of
each panel. The phrase mirrors the pleas of all individuals to find security in their own cities.
