As an emerging artist in 1990\, Greg Colson began developing unique visu al and conceptual trajectories that continue to evolve today.  More than tw enty years after Roberta Smith named him to the New York Times Faces To Watch list\, Patrick Painter Inc. is pleased to pres ent Greg Colson: Early Works\; a selection of obj ects from that initial period in the artist's practice.

\n

The wall works o n display in the West Gallery are illustrative of Colson's signature deadpa n relationship to the formulaic.  In the guise of something diagrammatical\ , Colson's work slowly reveals itself to be inconclusive\, warped or otherw ise imperfect\, a sly investigation into our collective preoccupation with order.  By arranging disparate materials and aesthetic information into app arently ordered visual alignments Colson has consistently offered poetic re minders of our own hopelessly imperfect humanity.

Colson has exhibited throughout the United States and Eur ope. His solo exhibitions include Sperone Westwater\, New York\; Konrad Fis cher Galerie\, Dusseldorf\; Kunsthalle Lophem\, Bruges\, Belgium\; Gian Enz o Sperone\, Rome\; and the Lannan Museum\, Lake Worth\, FL.
