Exhibition - Katie Metz
Looking for something edgy to paint, Katie Metz began hitting the streets day and night, shooting photos, sketching and taking notes. Her field experiences led to fresh and original portrayals of what it is to live in the city. Each painting begins with flurries of brushstrokes applied in multiple thin layers followed by mark making and scraping. A blizzard of gestural incisions with a razor blade echo structural shapes and glinting lights, and evoke mood and atmosphere that instantly draws viewers into the scenes.
Exhibition Dates: May 4 - May 28, 2021
