Karin Davie: Dangerous Curves
Friday, February 24–Sunday, May 14, 2006
Karin Davie is the first solo exhibition of the artist’s paintings, sculptures, and drawings; a survey that tracks the evolution of Davie’s visual vocabulary. A true innovator, Davie redefines the modernist convention of stripe painting by inserting gesture and the artist’s hand back into optical, hard-edged, geometric convention. Her work explores the boundaries between representation and abstraction while simultaneously alluding to the figure, memory, and landscape. There are a myriad of ways to contemplate the evolution of her style, as her paintings reach beyond an isolated visual experience, embodying emotion, movement, social commentary, and most importantly the artist’s hand.
The museum is closed. Please visit us tomorrow between 10 am and 5 pm.
