Gray Contemporary presents "Vis - à - vis" and "Tiny - Vast Universes" opening reception
In "Vis - à - vis," Mary Bucci McCoy develops through experimental engagement with acrylic paint and mediums, water, and geological materials such as marble dust, sand and micaceous iron oxide. Through manual manipulation and maneuvering, the materials’ inherent physical properties - processes and forces such as fluidity, sedimentation and gravity - are exploited to create incidents within the temporal parameters of acrylic paint, i.e. the concretization through drying. Often suggesting an accretion of layers, most in fact occur in a single, intensely focused painting session.
“Tiny - Vast Universes” from Dimitra Skandali will be re-installed in response to the space of Gray Contemporary. It aims to invite the viewer to re-discover new worlds through the uniqueness of unexpected elements; new worlds reveal themselves as people move around them and become more intimate with them.
Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display until June 22.
