Presenting the newest paintings by Chris Trueman in an exhibition entitled Certain Intangibility that represent a culmination of Trueman’s development of a distinct approach to abstract painting that has advanced over the past fifteen years in his studio practice. Recognized for their bold visual texture, Trueman’s paintings dematerialize upon closer viewing with their flat surfaces that suggest the reverse illumination of electronic screens. This mercurial combination speaks to agenda of the artist to remake abstraction reevaluating its historical focus on the physical presence of the materials on painting’s surface against the realities of our daily engagement with digital devices.


Presenting the new work of German artist Jennifer Bannert in a exhibition entitled Elements and offers an introduction to her artistic practice that spans mediums and materials and centers around the relationships of humanity and nature. Within the context of the immense shift from nature being a stable backdrop for human history to one where nature intervenes in human history itself; Bannert’s work incorporates technological materials like aluminum and digital photographic processes along with paintings made traditionally and drawn from German and English landscapes from the Romantic period. Hewing towards alternative representations of nature.
