October 19 - November 30, 2019
A solo exhibition featuring paintings and works on paper by Marcelyn McNeil.
“The oil paintings of Marcelyn McNeil weave through dualities the artist handles with virtuosity: organic and hard-edge, painterly and flat matte, austerity and humor. The tension created by these balances and the looming forms read simply but enable the chance to engage slowly within the macro-view of the composition and the micro-view of the palimpsest layers.
In her new body of work Slow Eddy, paintings and works on paper continue these motivations. Spare and deliberate forms interfold with soft pours to invite contemplation. White oxide takes on a dominant role in the palette and there is a deep push toward thinning and pouring oil paint. Each thin layer on the raw canvas becoming a luminous veil to deeply sensuous effect.”
