Anne Russinof photo blogs a visit to the exhibition Pair: Forty Paintings, Twenty Painters, curated by Ian White Williams at Proto Gallery, Hoboken, NJ, on view through February 9, 2014.
The show includes works by Chris Ashley, Karen Baumeister, Ashlynn Browning, Lindsay Chandler, Marc Cheetham, Lauren Collings, Paul Corvers, Inge Decuypere, Judith Farr, Terry Greene, Meg Lipke, Jai Llewellyn, Stephen B. MacInnis, Lynne Marinelli Ghenov, Phillip Mellen, David T Miller, Julie Torres, Tim Schwartz, Tobias Wenzel, an Stephen Wright.
Behnke writes that Corvers' "work occupies a considered space between representation and abstraction that continually prompts memory and associations in the viewer. The use of gray is instrumental in the process, bringing a vague uncertianty to bear that allows for a mysterious, open interpretation."
Edited by artist Brett Baker, Painters' Table highlights writing from the painting blogosphere as it is published and serves as a platform for exploring blogs that focus primarily on the subject of painting.
