Please join us to meet artist Frank Campion at the opening reception for his exhibition titled dichotomies. The show opens Friday, Sept. 15 (opening reception 5 – 7 p.m.) and runs through Saturday, Oct. 27. The work is stunning and the concept behind it is fascinating. According to the artist, the dictionary defines “dichotomy” as “a division into two mutually exclusive, opposed, or contradictory groups – a dichotomy between thought and action.” He says, “It occurs to me that we tend to be naturally judgmental, making the world a binary proposition: good/bad, yes/no, on/off, right/wrong, hot/cold, rough/smooth, etc. so this new work is about dichotomies. One dichotomy involves the collision between the rational and the random. The rational is the simple geometric, intentional composition. The random is the occurrence of accidental painterly incidents. The other dichotomy has to do with the meeting of dominant colors that exist independently, but live adjacent to each other. This creates an emotional atmosphere or mood. As the work progresses, the process becomes more intuitive and subject to impulse.”
We’re looking forward to introducing Frank to our artists, friends and collectors. Hope to see you on the 15th!
