Feb 2 - Feb 26, 1994
During the month of February the Frumkin/Adams Gallery will show new paintings by Sandy Winters. The exhibition features seven canvasses completed this past fall in which she continues to combine geometry with imagery derived from nature. New to the work, however, is her use of graphite on raw canvas which, juxtaposed with the painted forms, gives a three-dimensional presence to the images as well as a sense of animation to the compositions.
In the largest work on view, for example, Court of Last Resort, the lush, tropical imagery of Winters' earlier work is replaced by an arrangement of forms placed against a stark grid of graphite lines drawn directly on the canvas. In Cornucopia, Winters has painted a series of images against a dark ground, carefully rendering their volumes and surfaces. One form, however, sketched in red conte, breaks the three-dimensional illusion she has created, allowing us to see the armature on which the painted elements are built.
The Sandy Winters exhibition will be on view from February 2nd through February 26th. A reception for the artists will be held on Friday, February 18th from 5 to 7pm. The Frumkin/Adams Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 to 6, Saturdays from 10 to 5:30.
