Tuesday, January 21 – Friday, March 14th, 2014
Opening Reception Thursday, January 23 5pm to 9pm
The Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall University presents “Simultaneity,” a traveling group exhibition curated by artist Gabriel Phipps. The exhibition brings together five artists who address the subject of abstraction within their work. Each is influenced by different aspects of modernist painting traditions including Cubism, Pop, Constructivism and Russian Suprematism. Viewed collectively, the paintings provide a viewing experience rich in associations and phenomena – a pool of conflicting sources and viewpoints that arise from proximity.
Participating artists include Megan Brady, Nick Lamia, Steve McCall, Gabriel Phipps and Danielle Tegeder. Notes curator, Gabriel Phipps, “peculiar and often tense combinations include objects depicted from multiple perspectives, forms that function as windows, objects whose scale vacillates between human-size and the infinite, and paint that describes pictorial space while asserting itself in literal space.” These dichotomies address the pictorial notion of simultaneous experience by way of shared and individual approaches to painting. The exhibition was previously on view at Suffolk Community College’s Flecker Gallery, Boston University’s Sherman Gallery and the Grimshaw-Gudwicz Art Gallery at Bristol Community College. A catalogue with essay by Joe Fyfe is available at the Walsh Gallery.
