An unwavering belief in Painting binds artists Tomory Dodge, Stephen Ormandy, Lauren Silva, Arthur Peña, Timothy Bergstrom, Cody Hudson, Jacin Giordano, and Iva Gueorguieva in this group show at Circuit12.
The artists in Cult of Color harness a power, however ever subtle or bombastic, that can only be found in the expanded field of painting. Within these works formal elements take on esoteric meaning and a specific function within the eternal frame. These painters willingly pursue an ambiguous end with no plans of returning. Their works question the world to which they are born into through invented visual language and exist within the mysterious possibilities that abstraction lends. An unwavering belief in Painting binds these artists as they hold firm to a discipline in the midst of physiological and cultural tumult.
