Conduit Gallery presents "Ribbons and Curtains," a solo exhibition of large-scale paintings and works on paper by Washington state-based artist, Robert Jessup.

Former longtime professor of painting, Jessup will present a body of new large-scale paintings that build on the explorations of form, color and composition that he embarked on since relocating from Texas to Whidbey Island, Washington in 2019. Employing line as his primary expressive agent, Robert Jessup weaves together line and color to create fields of complex atmospheres.

In each of the 11 large paintings in the exhibition, lines come in and out of focus, receding and dispatching through pale translucent backgrounds. Once entangled, a fabric of complex color begins to form. Immersive and moody, the paintings both subvert and reinforce resolve, with sustained still notes hovering over a sea of movement.

In addition to the paintings, a group of small studies on watercolor paper will be included in the exhibition.

The exhibition will remain on display through May 6.
