Opening Reception: Paul Sunday – Inversions
November 14, 2017 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Become aware of your perception of light, texture and form through Sunday’s vocabulary of geometric abstraction.
“These new paintings are inversions of my early works. They take the palette of subtle whites and off-whites of the first paintings and transform them into something like a photographic negative. They were born in my mind’s eye some years ago while experimenting with an alternative vision therapy called the Bates Method. There is an exercise where one covers the eyes and attempts to visualize a field of pure black. In the beginning what mostly happens, is that dark, subtle images form. My creative life has been engaged primarily with the picture plane. As a photographer and painter, I produce super flat works, but they are always meant to capture volume and light. While these paintings are quite dark, light is the primary material. On their surfaces, I am riffing on the vocabulary of geometric abstraction, but the principal concern is to examine the subtle experience of seeing, the movement of light in space.” —Paul Sunday
