WPA is pleased to announce an exhibition by Ryan Tomcho.
"Interrupture" is a collection of canvases which present nonrepresentation as a space made up of disparate elements, intermingling through a space both flat and illusionistic. Activation is created through the mutual interruption and tension of movements similar, opposing, and nonrelated. The surface isn't just there to expose and exploit the literal material of which it is made, nor is it there to be forgotten. Instead, materials, surfaces, marks and gestures are all represented as illusions of themselves. The surface is in fact a thin layer of pigment applied by a machine. In a sense, the false tactility of the brushmarks heightens their presentness. One moment in time becomes many, orchestrated through a whole which is not unified or singular, but uncertain, irregular, meandering, and unstable.
