Opening Reception: May 1st 7-10pm
Join us on May 1st for the Opening Reception of Contra Euclid!
Stemming largely from an interest in unknowable spaces (visually or physically un-occupiable) this body of work considers the conditions and contents of such places. The shape of the canvases is the result of a desire to retain a polygonal substrate but to begin the work in a state of disorder and asymmetry. The language of physical form and substance runs parallel to that of the drawn “glyphs” borrowing the language of painted vessels, relief sculpture, and graffiti.
