“Hide and Seek” approaches abstract art differently. It asks questions about medium, about material, about process – and hopes to get the viewer looking. Because sometimes, it’s not about listing, defining, picking apart. Sometimes it’s about seeing, and feeling. Here, we have an artist who layers acrylic messily and vigorously; an artist who casts resin and wax to comment on objects and places; an artist who embraces an “organic geometry”; an artist who repurposes found objects in her work; an artist who fools the eye with her painting process; an artist who uses precise machinery to shape geometric forms. Six different artists, six very different bodies of work – each with something important to say.

So read the wall text, but know that it’s just one interpretation. Here, abstract is subjective, and it’s up to the viewer to piece it together.

Please be sure to also pick up the 20-page publication exclusively written and printed for this exhibition, which has been designed and photographed by Grace Bruton!

“Hide and Seek” will remain open by appointment through July 19. Please email to schedule a tour/ walkthrough after the opening.
