Line and Verse consists of the work of 16 artists working in the US, primarily in painting and drawing. The artists span generations, and the modestly scaled works in this show vary in approach and historical lineage. Ranging from non-objective geometry to pop influenced image realities, there are subtle relationships between works and thinking. Perhaps most clearly, all of the artists consciously deal, in some way, with the architecture and structure of subjective space. The logic of its construction is in service to some kind of experience within the rectangle, playing on the tradition of pictures as an alternate reality, painting as a window on a wall.
Central to the works is the manner in which spaces are crafted, considered, framed, and shuffled. It can be a stylized directive from the artist, or a sly disruption of expectation. This goes beyond simple formal arrangement, to a sort of metaphysical expression (Metaphysical, literally meaning After Physical, somehow fits). Order, disorder, juxtaposition, and symmetry are all employed as a means to an end, and sometimes the end itself.

Nandipha Mntambo’s solo exhibition, Material Value, presents artworks that span an entire career of using cow hide and the cultural, historical, and universal associations we attribute to this medium. The obsessive use of bovine by-products and the complex associations we attribute to cattle allows a multiplicity of readings of Mntambo’s work. The idiomatic and proverbial (Read more…)
