An Archeology of Color

Date/Time

Jan 4, 2013 to Feb 15, 2013

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

Artists Shawn McNulty and Silvana LaCreta Ravena both appreciate and utilize multiple layering techniques in their abstract painting as a way to introduce the elements of design: form, color, and composition. McNulty uses large commercial-grade palette knives to create the layers and textures in his paintings through a series of applications that include scraping, slicing, and a technique he calls “scuffling,” which involves a repetitive chopping motion. McNulty is influenced by the Abstract Expressionists and he combines the physicality of the genre’s action painting with the intensity of color field painting. Ravena uses her layering technique as a way to explore the concept of memory through the meditation of light and color. Ravena says she draws from her experience as a clinical psychologist to infuse her work with layers and textures of paint as a metaphor for the way we layer memories in our mind to mark the passage of time.
