Conduit Gallery presents Robert Jessup: "Square - New Paintings from 2018" opening reception
Conduit Gallery will present "Square: New Paintings from 2018," a solo exhibition of work by Roswell-based artist, Robert Jessup.
Jessup’s exhibition is a further presentation of his meditations on rectangular forms shimmed neatly inside a square. Earlier entries in his "Square" series produced relatively balanced sequences of slightly oblong shapes in his palette of muted rosy reds and navy blues. Chromatic slabs stand on top of one another in relative ease and order. Another year in, and the confabulations of color are still settled into place, but not quite as simply. Stacks of skinny, minute slabs are crushed under giant gradients of color. Jessup has been open about how this series has chronicled his move from figurative work to complete abstraction, though viewers of his previous show, "Pictures & Stories," (Conduit Gallery, Winter, 2013) may recognize his ability to impose order upon chaotic scenes.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through March 30.
