Gallery Sonja Roesch presents "Mac Whitney: Sculptures and Paintings" opening reception
Gallery Sonja Roesch hosts a solo exhibition of work by Texas-based artist, Mac Whitney. "Mac Whitney: Sculptures and Paintngs" is an exhibition featuring Whitney’s abstract sculptures, constructed out of steel. The sculptures are a metaphysical expression of the fundamental forces of tension and resolution evident in the built environment: the thrust of a tall vertical; the repose of an outstretched horizontal; the dynamism of a forceful diagonal; the lyricism of a slowly unfolding curve – all subtly knit into the fabric of a freestanding form that is both open and closed. Also featured in the exhibition are Whitney’s most recent oil paintings. Layers of oil paint are applied to the surface of each painting with a chain, recalling Whitney’s hands-on approach to sculpting steel.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view until March 10.
