Opening Reception, "Consistency of the Temporal" Maier Museum of Art
- 5 p.m.
"Consistency of the Temporal" (January 31? April 12, 2020) presents Beatrice Modisett?s recent investigations into the visualization and layering of histories through the lens of both the geologic and auto-biographical. The paintings are formed through the accrual and erosion of layers and layers of thinned oil paint. Fiery reds burning beside cool grays and turbulent waves of rivulets recall the geologic phenomena that shape terrain ? eruptions, tsunamis and shifting tectonic plates among them ? and the undulating and cracked surfaces exhibit the highly physical process of each painting?s creation. The ceramic and mixed media pieces present as objects pulled from deep within the events of the paintings.
This exhibition is generously sponsored by Mary Gray Shockey ?69.
