Greenpoint Hill is thrilled to announce Parting and Together, a group exhibition curated by Trudy Benson opening on Friday, September 15th, with a reception 7-10pm.
The exhibition title comes from a painting by Elizabeth Murray, which was notable in that it pushed the boundaries of traditional rectangular paintings and foreshadowed the 3 dimensional shaped canvases she would go on to make.
The show includes works by: Andrea Belag, Maria Calandra, Isabel Halley, Leah James, Caroline Larsen, Rachel Malin, Beth Noe, Tessa Perutz, Talia Shulze, Adrienne Tarver, and Rachel Williams.
Ranging from hand-painted digital prints by Talia Shulze, to ceramic vessels by Isabel Halley, to shaped canvas paintings by Rachel Williams, the tie that binds the work in this exhibition together is an obvious presence of the artist's hand. The works share an emphasis on materiality. Just as Elizabeth Murray's painting, an oil painting on a rectangle, was pushed to 3-d objecthood by rotating the canvas about 45 degrees, the work in this exhibition does not simply exist as 2-dimensional image. In Maria Caladra's work, this shift occurs more subtly, through the mark-making. The work in Parting and Together asks for a more intimate viewing experience.
