Barry Whistler Gallery presents Linnea Glatt: Continuum opening reception
Barry Whistler Gallery continues its 30th year with a move to a larger space at a new location that will feature the opening exhibition of the work of Linnea Glatt.
The exhibition’s title, Continuum, alludes to the existence of the work (and possibly the gallery) in continuous motion, and is likely a nod to the frequent subject matter of quantitative change in Glatt’s work.
Continuum is a title of a work in the exhibition that unfolds like a story or a thought with a progression from beginning to end. The reading or journey of a work is most often revealed cumulatively with individual parts creating a whole. A thread of opposition runs through all of the works by employing aspects of large and small, before and after, lightness and darkness, proximity and remoteness, presence and absence.
This concept is perhaps most visible in Glatt’s multi-part works. For this exhibition, many pieces make use of 3-, 5-, and even 7-part polyptychs to showcase the shifts between opposite ends. One could sum up the exhibit with the definition of continuum: a range or series of things that are slightly different from each other and that exist between two different possibilities.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through June 25.
