Jessika Clement: The Generous Deceit of Elusive Darkness
Exhibition: February 5-March 1, 2018
Reception: Wednesday, February 14, 12:30 p.m.

A series of abstract paintings that suggest illusions of otherworldly passages. The process of gestural abstraction mimics the ephemeral nature of atmosphere. Dynamic slashes of paint contrast with soft brush marks, while bright colors, illuminated by Baroque-inspired lighting, emerge from the depths of darkness. The exchanges are crucial; seduction incited by tension.

Exhibition: March 5-April 5, 2018
Reception: Thursday, March 15, 2018
