The exhibition, Painted Perfect, featuring Kadar Brock, Chris Dorland, Jason Gringler, Matt Jones, Brendan Lynch, Peter Sutherland, and Wendy White questions materiality and painterly abstraction. While opening new qualities, meanings, and experiences free from selective interpretation, the artists place value on both the freedom and confines of process. Constructing or deconstructing with alternative or unconventional materials such as sand, wax, glue, glass, or components of photography, the exhibition focuses on works that are manipulated to develop painterly aesthetics; where industrial elements are displaced from their usual function thus consigning a path from stability to expressive substance.
The demanding physical processes of creation for artists like Kadar Brock and Jason Gringler imply involvement with time and irreversibility, allowing for erratic or irregular dispositions produced by acts as pouring, sanding, cutting or smashing. With careful application and calculated experimentation, Chris Dorland and Brendan Lynch, Peter Sutherland, and Wendy White use accumulation and distribution to distinguish subtleness and textural characteristics.
Painted Perfect, a contradiction in term, celebrates a new age of objectivity in object, material, abstraction, painting and process.
