DESCRIPTION

Concurrently in the Project Room, Launch LA presents "Walk the Line" a group show curated by Bryan Ricci with works by Charley Alexander, Sara Bright, Srijon Chowdhury, and Katy Cowan. The work displayed in the show seems very different yet similarities arise. As an entry point we see how each artist's work deals with the distance between representation and abstraction. This subject can seem like a long and constraining line. The four artists on display here paint past that conversation. The distance becomes flattened and opens up new roads in each of the works as well as in the conversations surrounding painting as a whole. "Walk the Line" exemplifies the painting practices these artists navigate between and at the same time beyond abstraction and representation.
