Cinq Gallery presents Jennifer Wagner: On Center opening reception
Cinq Gallery presents On Center, a solo exhibition by Texas based artist, Jennifer Wagner.
Manipulating shadow, blur, and reflection is the centerpiece of Wagner’s artistic practice. Her mixed media work is a blend of plaster, acrylic paste, and powdered pigment. These varied materials are forced repeatedly through masks, creating marks that often relate more closely to classic impressionism than to modern expressionism. By teasing an active form from this control mechanism, she reveals her visual idiom: “Creating freedom from control and randomness from organization.” Therefore, each form is an alter ego of the artist’s inner self. The patterns used in her work are gleaned from old world geometric decoration, often inspired by design motifs, such as quilts, kaleidoscopes, and mandalas.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 14, 2016.
