Paintings by Gudrun Mertes-Frady and Explorations in Line: In these abstract paintings by Gudrun Mertes-Frady, the precision of the grid is delicately balanced with the ebb and flow of curvilinear lines. Using colors that evoke much more than their materiality, mixed in with metallic pigments and mica particles, there is a kinetic quality of illusory motions depending from which angle the work is seen.
Explorations in Line highlights the vital role of line in the work of three contemporary abstract artists. Working in sculpture, photography, and drawing, Jaanika Peerna, Tenesh Webber and Tamar Zinn use line as a thing unto itself, an embodiment of thought and sensation, rather than as a means to depict form. For these artists a line may manifest breath, communicate movement, embody emotion or reflect natural phenomena.
On exhibition from October 20 – November 11.
Gallery Hours: Tues-Sun, 10am-5pm.
