DESCRIPTION

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.
