Opening reception 6- 9 pm March 19
Though seemingly fragile, and tenuous in their connection to the wall, Gwendolyn Kerber’s work has a strong commitment to the continuity of painting. And to landscape painting in particular; a vehicle that allows Kerber to explore formally complicated spatial issues, philosophical positions and abstract compositions that veer far away from the natural referent.
In the Anthropocene it seems natural and intuitive that the paintings would cease to be windows and instead step into the viewer’s space. Kerber uses color in a sculptural way, bringing it into real space as a material as much as a means to create an illusion of depth.
