Gray Contemporary presents In Other Words & The Edge of the Sea opening reception
Gray Contemporary will present two solo exhibitions: In Other Words by Shawn Stipling will be featured in the Main Gallery and in the Second Gallery The Edge of the Sea, an exhibition of works by Cecilia Vissers, will be on view.
In the Main gallery are a selection of recent works by Shawn Stipling. He finds interest in creating a personal dialogue with the viewer and by reducing the scale, and consequently the viewing distance, the observer is invited into a more private and focused interaction with the work. The black flat painted surfaces which have a deceptively manufactured appearance, are built up of many thin layers leaving no discernible signs of brush marks.
For over a decade the practice of Cecilia Vissers has remained committed to refining and perfecting the effectiveness of her sculptural idiom. The curves and angles of her wall-based objects are milled to within fractions of a millimeter, and the surfaces of her plates are also subjected to exacting control standards in order to meet her artistic requirements. The industrially manufactured aluminum panels obtain their color by the process of anodizing.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 7, 2017.
