About the exhibition
These works each highlight an aesthetic that is very much alive. From transitory hues and materials to text which leaves the viewer in liminal space, these works cause me to wonder what sort of internal shifts these artists are experiencing. Most works offer us a certain dynamism, while others disburse movement more slowly. As speed and energy shifts, so does depth, whereas shapes both dance along the surface and reach back to somewhere new. However, a written description of such non-objective works can only do so much. I invite you to instead experience these vibrant works and sense the shifts they create in you.
