Its WINTERSNOW / SNOWINTERS at Grayduck Gallery
Grayduck Gallery is currently exhibiting the work of two talented artists: Mathew John Winters and Pat Snow. Pat's work consists of expressive portraits done on panels with transparent layers of paint and bold line work. Reminiscent of Elizabeth Peyton, Pat has a minimalistic approach to the art of portraiture. His use of black and bright primary colors is lean and effective. The white of the panels is left untouched both in the background and areas of light areas on the face creating strong areas of contrast. Some of the paintings include text which I find is more effective on some of the pieces than others.
Working in a different vein, Matthew John Winters creates amorphous shapes with densely compacted ink drawings. The imagery found in the drawings is whimsical and seemingly random. His use of black ink and a minimal color palette helps guide the eye throughout each piece. Matthew also exhibited other paintings that would seem to have been made by a completely different artist. Nevertheless they are strong abstract pieces that play with geometry and different materials such as spray paint.
WINTERSNOW SNOWINTERS will be up from june 21 - july 21, 2013. Grayduck gallery is open to the public Thursdays - Saturdays 11-6pm and Sundays 12-5pm. Their next show titled Buk Collection features artist Jason Webb. Opening reception takes place on Friday, July 26, 7-9pm. The exhibition will run from July 26 to August 25, 2013
