Through Thick and Thin: Image Painting Today opens Saturday February 18th at Erin Cluley Gallery
[Dallas, Texas – December 16, 2016] ERIN CLULEY GALLERY is pleased to announce a group exhibition titled Through Thick and Thin: Image Painting Today. The exhibition dates are February 18 – March, 2017. The gallery will host a reception for the artists on Saturday February 18th from 6:00-8:00 pm.
Through Thick and Thin is an exhibition celebrating how imagistic painting has persisted and also radically changed today. As we are increasingly bombarded by images and text under a textureless screen, the stakes for image painting have never been higher. Perhaps in response to this, painters today are placing increasing importance on attention to the tactile treatment of the painting’s surface. Whether marks are thick big gestures of paint or thin sanded down dots of canvas weave, each painting draws one in – to look closely, smell, taste, and be present with each surface.
In addition, our daily lives are becoming increasingly fragmented as we move back and forth between friend, home, and phone. Similarly, the narratives in these paintings function in more ambiguous parts of stories or moments in time rather than describing stories in their entirety.
