Bob and Weave
Exhibition closed: January 7, 2019
Bob and Weave showcases a collection of abstract artwork keenly expressed by flowing rhythmic marks. These paintings, collages, and encaustic assemblages emphasize each artist’s distinct relationship to their work and the moment of its conception.
The boxing terminology, from which this exhibition borrows its name, describes a rhythmic bobbing motion fighters use to evade attacks. The repetitive gestural markings prominent in these works allude to a similar tracking of movement across the picture plane. When orchestrated together, layers of continuous gestures map a hypnotic network of color and materials.
