Carter Burden Gallery presents On the Wall featuring Jane Greer. The reception will be held October 22, 2015 from 6 – 8 PM. The exhibition runs from October 15th through November 5th at 548 West 28th Street in New York City. The Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday, 11am-5pm, Saturday 11am-6pm.
Jane Greer’s large-scale installation will be featured in the gallery space On the Wall. The artist is presenting recent large paintings on un-stretched canvas created for this exhibition. The paintings were created on the floor and freeze the artist’s intentional actions. Acrylic paint is thinned with water to create washes with varying intensity. The paintings include cut paper and pastel drawings of abstracted creatures and figures. Greer is an obsessive maker: she has devoted her life to making art. She is an interdisciplinary artist who has worked with welding metal, woodworking, painting, photography, and paper cutting.
