Holly Johnson Gallery presents John Adelman: "Drawing: Attn" opening reception
Holly Johnson Gallery will present the opening of "Drawing: Attn," an exhibition of new ink drawings on canvas by John Adelman.
"Drawing: Attn" is Adelman's fifth solo exhibition with the gallery and it continues to explore the material qualities of ink. Accumulative and compulsive, his compositions are strictly defined by a series of rules that the artist sets for himself. The works are diverse in scale, subject, and resources, and all created in a formula driven manner. The use of gel ink and the excessive layering of it produce rich, luxuriant surfaces transcending the utilitarian material. With his use of unconventional materials and his meticulous method, Adelman's work could easily be dismissed or overly simplified, if it weren't for the understated beauty in the results.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through December 23.
