Between the Eyes @ Crosstown Arts in Memphis, TN

Rubens Ghenov and Marina Adams

Rob de Oude, Laurel Sucsy, and Rubens Ghenov

From the Press Release:

Crosstown Arts is pleased to present "Between the Eyes," a group show about contemporary abstract painting and how we see it. 

Just as the relationships of pitch and duration can express emotion in music, the formal relationships of hue, value, shape, and placement can collect to create meaning in abstract painting. Featuring the work of six painters exploring distinct modes of abstraction, the exhibition examines the way each artist uses deliberate choices to engage us in the experience of looking. Formal cues such as gesture, color and the use of found objects prompt us to recognize patterns and attribute meaning to certain behaviors. Physicality contends with the pictorial as we both decipher and project meaning into the space of abstract forms.
