DESCRIPTION

Reduction or Something Less transforms and redefines the viewer experience, playing with one’s predetermined expectations of how we interact with visual art.  Working in a broad variety of media, these artists emphasize the spatial, social and psychological relationships between a work of art and its spectator, creating an active viewing experience.  Backman investigates the separation between painting and object, flat and dynamic, recreating the familiar with illusions and tromp l’oile.  Nichols delves into psychological experience, using childlike shapes and colors and intermingling fantasy and reality, while Guérin creates paintings using repetition and abstraction of shapes and forms. This grouping of artists will exhibit amongst each other to support and challenge views of the refined.
