Curated by James Biederman & Lisa Taliano
This exhibition joins the energies and affinities of nine working artists who bring their sense of raw, uncensored yet purposeful meanderings within their intimate interiors toward an explosion and gushing of emotionality and feeling. Their common language is abstraction: the expression of thought, meaning and feeling through a personal invented language of form and color. What has drawn us to these works, is a sense of adventure, a journey of tonality and form which speaks of sound and necessity. The cacophony of color is set in motion by the urgency of the crowding toward the frontal picture plane, the obscurity of the figure ground relationship and the entanglement of form. These elements feed the uncooked consumption of paint as color and substance.
