DESCRIPTION
Zero Gravity/Heavy Weather: Weight and Weightlessness in Contemporary Painting addresses the idea of how conceptual content of a work of art reflects its material qualities. The question of how to integrate the almost limitless plastic qualities of paint – from its extreme substantial to ethereal possibilities – with a meaning that is congruent with a work’s inherent material traits is explored in this exhibition. Zero Gravity/Heavy Weather presents six New York City painters who explore contrasting, internally consistent material and thematic approaches to physical and conceptual weight in painting.
