A group show featuring the works of Karl Boehm, Sarah Colby, Claire Feng, J.T. Kirkland, Adam Lister, Stephanie Rivers, Sean Salyards, Rodger Schultz and Jamin Sheard. The show was curated by gallery owner, Adam Lister.
From the press release:
"One way to describe emptiness is by defining space. Within a space there can be things, each of these things has its own charge or energy. By visually and physically existing, anything that occupies space inherently creates a force in the world. This tension or pressure, is viewed in terms of positive and negative. These things are what they are, only because of what is not around them. This emptiness or invisible energy, is what fills our world, constantly flowing around everything, allowing us to see what is what. This between space to us, is like water to a fish, the air we navigate through holds its own potential for change and distortion.
"This unseen force is the bond that holds it all together. Its an infinite source of thinking, or a structure that in one way supports and at the same time destroys. We can view the world through a series of contradictions, making it more and more evident that things are not always what they seem to be. Opposing forces create all the energy in the universe, either through attraction of positive and negative, or the repulsion between forces of the same charge. The expansion of this power creates new groupings, and these new formations attract and repel within themselves, in turn creating more new groups, and as this process goes on, energy is transfered, shifted, and reshaped.
"The work on display for Invisible Energy
examines some of the different ways that artists incorporate suspense, balance, and force into their art.
The show runs from May 14 June 2 and there will be an opening reception on Friday, May 14 from 6-9pm. I will be in attendance. I will have seven pieces in the show: six paintings and one clear coat on plywood piece.Adam Lister Gallery
