Conduit Gallery presents Stephen Lapthisophon: New Drawings opening reception
Conduit Gallery presents a small focus exhibition of works on paper created by Stephen Lapthisophon.
The mixed media works on paper combine text and letterforms to create poetic improvisations that capture and linger in fleeting moments. Seized from the artist’s own studio, found materials such as newspapers, leaves and string diffuse into layers of house paint, ink and gesso. Continually interested in the influence of the Arte Povera artists of the mid 20th Century, Lapthisophon engages in a methodology guided by ephemerality, history and the poetry of the spaces in between formal art-making approaches.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through March 26.
