Mark Wolfe Contemporary Art is pleased to present Surfacing, an exhibition of new paintings by Matt Mignanelli, Dominic Paul Moore, and Russell Tyler.
The title of this exhibition refers to the use of layers, frameworks, and textures by each painter, and how their techniques emerge as visual revelations within the resulting paintings. Mignanelli's works are a study in precision, offering up smooth, exacting planes with subtle variations from matte to gloss between shades; their simplicity belies the painstaking process behind their creation. Conversely, works by Moore appear deceptively loose and informal, and only reveal their complexity upon study; tiers of varying gesture and media hover above and below one another, creating a unique visual tension. Similarly, Tyler's highly textured paintings appear informal, but cleverly reveal subtle glimmers of hidden layers and precise structures upon closer examination.
