Moody Gallery presents Dan Sutherland: "peat" opening reception
Moody Gallery will feature an exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Dan Sutherland. "peat" marks his forth solo exhibition with Moody Gallery since 2006.
The exhibition consists of oil paintings on aluminum and wood as well as graphite drawings. Sutherland combines a diverse set of art historical references to produce hybrid forms that exist between depictive allusion and purely non-objective abstract form. The predominance of large, flat color planes allude to reductive geometric abstraction of the 1960s and 1970s, while other painterly marks evoke mid-20th century abstraction. Sutherland's color palette is culled from a wide variety of historical moments in visual culture from Pop Art and commercial design to optical phenomenon derived from 1960s Op-Art.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 18.
