Specific Density

I have three paintings included in a show in Philadelphia, the exhibition dates are November 21 - January 21, with a reception on Thursday, December 9, 5:30-7:30pm.

"Specific Density, showing in the Borowsky Gallery, includes seven InLiquid artists whose work is dense with imagery, materials and visual ideas. Artists included in the exhibition are Martin Bromirski,Randall Cleaver, Annette Cords, Paul Loughney, Marc Salz , Marta Sanchez and Carole Sivin.

Each of the seven artists in Specific Density, offers a different experience of density. Among the four painters in the exhibit, Richmond-based Martin Bromirski sets wildly varying textures against each other, while Brooklyn artist Annette Cords orchestrates multiply-layered patterns with unexpected color placements; in the constructed paintings of Marc Salz, large and small elements jostle and slyly cross-pollinate each other, while in Marta Sanchez’s retablo-like paintings, faces and story fragments intermingle in intensely-felt portraits. Carole Sivin’s mixed-media sculptures are lush accretions of organic elements in tropical hues; Randall Cleaver, a Dumpster Diver, works by addition on his witty found-object constructions. And Paul Loughney’s monotype compositions resonate with complex associations."
