View samples from the in-person exhibition:
Goodson’s color field paintings ebb between horizon and atmosphere. A depth of space peaks through the boundaries while the illusion is shifted back to the surface with the texture of the paint.
Howard references time, destruction, and interconnection with her political paintings. She references historical moments in time when minorities were wronged against. Her paintings depict a regenerated and abstracted space that combines texture, mark making, silhouettes of ripped tape, depth and perspective.
Kunlipe creates an alternate reality and gives an intangibility to formerly familiar objects in his paintings. A palette of primary colors is subdued by a dark environment. Surrealism and cubism influences surface in his work.
Trejo’s minimal acrylic on paper pieces honor her Honduran roots. The isolated objects from Honduras are painted with a minimal and subdued palette.
