Out of Step @ NJCU – just a minor threat

DIGITAL-INVITE

Out of Step
Opening Reception: Tuesday, October 8, from 5 – 8 p.m., with an artist talk at 6:30 p.m.

Featured Artists: Sharon L. Butler, Mark Dagley, Enrico Gomez, Tom McGlynn, Gary Petersen, Kati Vilim, and Sara Wolfe. Curated by Brendan Carroll. 

Given the new media of today—Internet art, generative software, digital projection mapping—why do artists continue to paint? And why do they continue to explore abstraction?

Out of Step is an informal survey of current practices in abstract painting. The artists may vary in style, subject matter, temperament, and conceptual framework, but they are unified by their no-nonsense approach to painting. Most of the work on view presents simple geometric shapes that are executed in broad expanses of pure color. From cerebral to laid-back, the artists explore line, value, color, and texture in their compositions. Despite the works’ superficial differences, each piece, however minimal, reveals the touch of the artist’s hand. For the artists in the show, paint is a means to an end, not the end. Abstraction, likewise, is not a cul-de-sac, but a living, breathing means of visual communication.
