Night + Day

Night and Day was an exhibition presented at the Galveston Art Center in 2019. The show included recent cut canvas paintings that are compact with color and pattern, as well as a number of space-specific installation elements. Including a series of 5 painted garden arches, festooned with braided rope, decorations and good luck charms that framed the exhibition and welcomed viewers throughout the space.

Benches with hand dyed fabric offered places to sit, while giant painted paper lanterns hung low in the space like rising moons. While the paintings in Night + Day threaten to be overwhelmed with an unreadable complexity the exhibition was continually welcoming viewers in with beckoning details and offers of respite.
