Cadence: New Paintings by Tony Conrad
September 23 - October 28, 2017
Reception: September 23, 5-8pm
also open during Gallery Night & Day, October 20 & 21
In Cadence, Tony Conrad explores his deep interest in pattern, repetitive mark making, and layering of color. Drawing from various cultural and historical movements, his process of reinventing the hash mark over and over again searches for a place where chaos and harmony coexist. The meditative nature of this process and consequent imagery describes a journey – not a destination.
