In Seven Twice, Seven Twice, Jerry Walden continues his explorations of Formalist compositional problems and color theory in two new large-scale works. The colors in both artworks in the exhibition are derived from Sir Isaac Newton’s seven-hue color chart he developed from his studies and observations of sunlight through a prism (Optiks, 1704). Newton created the world’s first color wheel, thus beginning the field of color theory.
Liz Jaff’s Wallflower, her third exhibition with the gallery, explores reflections on longing, vulnerability, inner strength and the changing nature of relationships. Consisting of large-scale ink on paper drawings and a time-based installation of ink and dissolving paper, the two bodies of work offer different perceptions of time passed and passing, highlighting the ephemerality of experience and the intangible nature of loss. They ask the viewer to experience time by capturing a particular moment or watching it undo itself in the present.
Mike Childs’s paintings attempt to create an internal order through space, color, and line, looking outward into the world for connections. His work has always been fundamentally abstract, however this latest imagery attempts to take that work one step further removed from identifiable representation.
