A show of new work "Line of Totality" with Elliot Norquist opens Thursday Oct 12th, 2017 at Carbondale Arts' main gallery space, the Launchpad, in Carbondale. This show will highlight the abstract drawings I've been focusing on for the past year.
They initially drew inspiration from geologic cross sections of rock layers. I've been using a horizontally banded organizing principle that encompasses wide experimentation in pattern, form, color, mark-making, intensity, allusion, and atmosphere.
Elliot's new sculptural steel wall pieces converse well with my work as he explores perforated surfaces, "usual shapes" and similarly banded compositions, color contrasts, and reflected light.
It's a good show. I hope you'll make it out. It should be up at least through November 3rd if you can't make the opening.
