From the press release:
Laura Korman Gallery is pleased to present COAST TO COLOR, a group exhibition featuring artists Cara Barer, Jordan Eagles, James Lecce, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann, Maureen McQuillan, Katherine Rohrbacher, and Randall Stolzfus. The exhibition is on view from January 7 through March 5, 2016 with a public reception on Saturday, January 16, 5-8 p.m.
Representing artists from across the east and west coasts, COAST TO COLOR delivers a vibrant selection of color-intensive works from seven artists that challenge the limitations set forth by traditional media to bring forth expressive ignitions of color.
coast (verb): “to continue to move or advance after effort has ceased; keep going on acquired momentum.”
Drawing reference from Pointillist techniques, Randall Stoltzfus builds continuous, intricately layered circular patterns with oil, adding carefully selected pigments, gold leaf, and other media to produce abstract horizons of deep blue and white. From afar, this textured layering produces a celestial glow of nearly distinguishable forms that emerge from indigo shadows…
…COAST TO COLOR highlights the infinite vocabulary of color through a range of media; serving as a psychological and communicative tool in engaging with the viewer and their response.
