If you build it, they will come. But how about if you wreck it or rather let it fall apart, will they still come? Of course they will and last November 21st that AF came to see the latest works of Damian Stamer for his show, Sundays. Fifty shades of grayscale-tinged oil on panel pieces seemed to be an easy label but there is more to the ramshackle view of structures in the American South – they are very textured and captivating. The works are ethereal and yet very deep in layers of symbolic girth that runs in proportion to the scale of the paintings. I think you can enjoy these latest works every day of the week but on Sunday, like the good Lord says, you can take a much needed rest in its weathered beauty.
