A moment in time
Well, this is not really about food either, unless you count paintings of pear as food related. There will be lots of pears I am told.
Anyway, my friend Matthew is having a solo show at Art21 Gallery in Palo Alto. Matt -aside from being one of my dearest friends- is also a wonderful painter. This is first solo show. He's been busy being a successful corporate consultant, but now he is finally returning to his first love, painting.
Works in this show will focus primarily on the newer, abstract series I have been working on. These works continue my exploration of light and texture interplaying with minimal forms.
Each of these pieces is a study in both the interplay of light within the painting as well as within the medium of the paint. Constructed from hundreds of layers of paint, the glazing process allows for light to be captured and refracted within the painting's surface.
The reception is tomorrow, 7-9pm, at Art21 Gallery, 539 Alma St., Palo Alto. The exhibition runs through March 30th.
