Julie S Graham: Incidental Matters
October 4, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - October 29, 2017 @ 5:00 pmFree
Improbable combinations of paint and color, geometric shapes, reclaimed materials, and inspiration from urban industrial areas are brought together in Incidental Matters, an exhibition of new work by Julie S Graham. The colors and textures in Graham's paintings seem to collide, forming surprising and ambiguous relationships reflecting the arbitrary nature of our world. Her materials, including wood, tin, and layered paint, are transformed, erased, scraped, sanded, built and rebuilt. Ultimately the process mimics the essence of change as it occurs in nature, along with marks embedded in the surface of these works, as on walls that carry the history of time. Graham seeks out spaces and structures that are ordinarily overlooked and hidden, discovering the power of abandoned buildings, minimalist spaces and clustered housing as influential sources. The works of Incidental Matters seem to appear from and stand as monument to the history of their making.
