Five Points Annex: Beyond Surface

Share this Post

I’m very pleased to announce an exhibition of paintings at Five Points Annex Gallery.

Exhibition: Thursday, July 16 – Thursday, July 26, 2020
Location: The Five Points Annex Gallery |17 Water Street | Torrington, CT
Hours: Thursday – Sunday 1-5pm

Beyond Surface presents a sampling from two concurrent projects

Discards & Discovery: A series of oil paintings in progress inspired by found objects, paintings where seemingly unrelated objects are paired together to emphasize an unexpected commonality or imply an underlying meaning.

Chalk & Chambers 48″ x 48″ Oil on Canvas

Ink & Oil: A series of portraits that explore people of all ages and walks of life that have chosen tattoos as their form of self-expression. These portraits seek to capture a gesture and mood that provide additional insights into the subject’s personality beyond their art. Simply put, canvases of people who are themselves canvases.

Joelle 40″ x 30″ Oil on Canvas

Both projects challenge the viewer to look beyond the surface — whether considering everyday objects or the people they meet.
