They Shapes

@ Gallery X

Opening Thursday, August 30th, from 4PM - 6PM

On view through Thursday, September 20th

Using figuration as a springboard for production, Drew Olivo , Alice Tippit, and Autumn Ramsey combine each of their three distinct painting languages to pictorially and physically challenge notions of the body. Each artist recollects histories of genre and style in painting to define their respective practices. Whether through Tippit’s immaculate surfaces exploring relationships between color and form in a vocabulary distinctly graphic and hierarchical, Olivo’s references to color field and the grid, or Ramsey’s crude and gestural depictions of Surrealist and grotesquely formed caricatures ­– these artists question what it means to ‘read’ painting, as a language both autonomously and collectively crafted.
