Pour presents selected works by established and emerging artists, including: Ingrid Calame, Kris Chatterson, Roland Flexner, Angelina Gualdoni, Carrie Moyer, Carolanna Parlato, David Reed, Jackie Saccoccio,  and Carrie Yamaoka.  Curated  by Elisabeth Condon and Carol Prusa, Pour examines the techniques of postwar abstraction from the  vantage of digital culture. Spanning several generations, each artist works exploits paint’s ability to veil, flicker and shift, achieving results that veer from graphic opacity to backlit transparency. Floating, pouring and sweeping liquid pigment on canvas and panel, alone or in combination with  “dry” applications such as drawing and collage, they redefine form and space in terms of speed, texture and depth. Wresting intense, often lyrical compositions from rigorously considered historical and philosophical premises, each painting enfolds thought and action within the presence of gesture. 

The POUR exhibition catalogue is made possible by the University of South Florida System Internal Awards Program under Grant No. 0048262. Essays in the catalogue are written by Stephen Maine and by Tyler Emmerson-Dorsch.  Lesley Heller Workspace and Asya Geisberg Gallery (located at537B West 23rd Street New York, NY 10011) will exhibit the two parts of Pour concurrently.
