IF COLOR COULD KILL
New Painting From New York City
Curated by Jeff Frederick
April 4-29, 2016
Please come to the opening reception:
Tuesday April 5th, 6-8PM
Robert Otto Epstein
Abstract painting is a color delivery device. But when does color become dangerous, even homicidal? If Color Could Kill imagines a world better than the one we live in: one where color is power. The works of these eight painters say Yes in a way that is louder than everyday life. Modern pigments free the painter from the boring colors of nature. This is color too strong to be safely observed by the naked eye, color so intense it overwhelms and electrifies our fragile, vulnerable humanity.
