OPENING RECEPTION: September 17, 2015, 5-9:30 pm
EXHIBITION DATES: September 17 - October 30, 2015

Each of these artists are abstractionists, or at least abstract-adjacent; yet each of them maintains a special relationship with the figure and an elemental experience of place. Specifically, all of these artists are (or were) coastal dwellers living and working right at the point where the landmass of the country begins and ends -- geographically, culturally, emotionally.


Where the land dissolves into the sea, that’s an abstract moment that exists within reality. Where individuals confront the scale of the ocean, the planet, the stars, the universe, that’s a liminal moment, psychologically abstract. And while this exhibition is mostly comprised of landscapes and interiors, these conditions also give rise to direct engagement between the imagination and the human form.

With examples of painting, works on paper, sculpture, installation, collage, photography, and performance art, Continental Drift examines porous boundary between nature and notion; the flirtations the external world has with abstract appearance; and finally, the degree to which both landscape and body manifest characteristics of ambiguity and abstraction in themselves.
