Art opening reception: Chromaticism and Endless


Chromaticism showcases Rob Reasoner's playfully contemplative line paintings. The artist's personal and improvisational process is developed intuitively as he yields colorful and optically engaging paintings, no matter the scale. Reasoner's study of music theory and piano informs his exploration of rhythmic lines of saturated color in his paintings. The limitless parade of uniform stripes remind one of visual manifestations of tempo and are the result of his exploration of dividing pictorial space between equal units, punctuating each with a different hue. 

Endless is a summer group exhibition featuring printed works by Donald Baechler, Rice University professor of printmaking and drawing Karin Broker, Houston-based artists Christian Eckart and Aaron Parazette, and Julian Schnabel. Broker's new series of prints combine inky, floral photogravures with personal affects such as letters, notes and cards instilling the works with an intimate glimpse into the artist's life. Parazette's unique inkjet prints are based on his lauded Color Key series which were highlighted in Art League Houston's 2012 Texas Artist of the Year exhibition as well as his 2011 solo show at McClain Gallery.

Endless is presented in conjunction with PrintHouston, a summer-long Houston-wide celebration of printmaking organized by PrintMatters.

On view through Aug. 24.
