"What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or disturbing subject-matter...like a comforting influence, a mental balm-something like a good armchair in which one rests from physical fatigue." - Matisse
Artificial Light in Richmond - Jennifer Allora, Guillermo Calzadilla, Spencer Finch, Ceal Floyer, Jenny Holzer, Ivan Navarro, Nathaniel Rackowe.
