Color As Metaphor
Color as Metaphor examines artists working in both abstract and non-representational forms whose work employs color in myriad ways: to add narrative, provide symbolic meaning, and elicit visceral or emotional sensations for the viewer. Julie Speidel’s hand rubbed prints contain richly saturated, amorphous shapes, with one stacked above the other. Mixed media artist, Cole Morgan, similarly defies gravity with forms that seem to float across the work’s surface to tease the viewer through trompe l’oeil techniques. Known for his large canvases and bold colorful style, Gary Komarin, is a master of post painterly abstraction. Marcia Myers’ fresco surfaces bring forth ancient surfaces and ancient times. We are excited to feature new ceramics by both Bean Finneran and Mark Cooper, two artists who push the limits of traditional sculpture and play with colorful glazes.
