Conduit Gallery presents J.C. Fontanive: "The Ones After The Physical Ones" opening reception
J.C. Fontanive investigates expanded forms of drawing that reflect his ongoing interest in the logic of nature. Elements of drawing - line, shape, color have in past work come together in varied media; moving images, moving objects, interactive works, and still works that randomize and mix to make systems of their own.
In "The Ones After The Physical Ones," his first exhibition of paintings, the shapes within the canvas are imagined physical shapes that would behave like actual objects. They are painted as if someone were repairing their driveway with a trowel and concrete. The edge quality of each shape is formed by the physical material spreading out over the surface.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through May 18.
