Gray Contemporary presents Aimée Terburg: Both Sides Now opening reception
Aimée Terburg's Both Sides Now, her first solo exhibition with the gallery, showcases a selection of her acrylic paintings from the ongoing series Divisibilitas in the Main Gallery and Monochromonito in the Second Gallery.
The black distorted surfaces in the paintings of the series Divisibilitas (Latin for Divisible) installed in the Main Gallery, are juxtaposed with subtle diversified monochrome yellows. The paintings appear as a sequel of options of the same moment. Taking closer looks, every painting shows its own unity of dualism and individual sense of potential flux in deformed brush gestures.
In the Second Gallery the black surfaces of the Monochromonito series show frozen moments of brush actions within the spared edges of the painting. As the gestures are 'negatives', absences of paint taken out of a wet monochrome black surface, requiring timing and concentration while leaving room for chance.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 15.
