Slow Read is a diverse selection of recent works that represent ongoing pursuits of material manipulation and process, while remaining tethered to narrative, memory, or the spiritual. From graphite and colored pencil to acrylic on canvas to ceramic, these works follow the sublime aspirations of 20th century abstraction and minimalism, but with an understanding that what those artists revealed wasn’t just reflective of the path they sought to pioneer, but the highly personal place they inevitably created from. Here, formal explorations are a starting point for the invention of a language that transmits idiosyncratic and mysterious ideas, feeling both familiar and unfamiliar.
