Triple Base Gallery and guest curator Dina Dusko are pleased to present An Equal Playing Field: New Work by Peter Stegall.
This is the Sacramento painter's first Bay Area solo show and the
culmination of Stegall's 30 year immersion in the “powerful playing
field of color.” His investment yields a body of work ever-changing
with each subtle stroke, careful composition and color choice. In
striving for a certain kind of perfection, the work emerges new, a near
surprise to the artist who exclaims, "Color has me on the end of a
string!" Stegall dedicates himself to the fundamentals of painting,
this exhibition of small-scale gloss enamels on masonite is his
personal variation on those fundamentals.
Stegall earned his M.A. in Art from California State
University, Sacramento. He is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner
Foundation grant and an Adolf and Esther Gotleib Foundation grant. His
work was included in the Crocker Art Museum exhibition "Neo Mod: Recent
Northern California Abstraction" and “Color and Geometry” at Mills
College Art Gallery curated by Phil Linhares.
