Kent exhibit ‘Liminal Space’ is showcase for two painters

An exploration of visible house informed by childhood memories and ideas tinged with illusion that functions daring color with tons of movement and bursts with electrical power.

This is my overarching perception of the intimate exhibit “Liminal House” on see at Troppus Projects in Kent as a result of July.

The exhibit features nearby painters Lindsay Martin Gryskewich and Griffin Allman. The alternative to exhibit these artists together is a great one because their function is complementary. Gryskewich’s paintings have representational factors that transfer towards the architectonic and ethereal, even though Allman’s pieces have a a lot more graphic mother nature with a hard edge. Together, they start a visual dialogue.

Encouraged by “how we go in concerning chaotic architecture and purely natural vegetation to come across terrific panoramas in the distance,” the paintings by Gryskewich aspect “seemingly” familiar locations or sites. They have morphed by way of the artist’s memory and use of distinct approaches this kind of as perspective.

"Master Bedroom, She," by Lindsay Martin Gryskewich

“Master Bedroom, She,” is a 40- by 48-inch portray in which Gryskewich depicts a grasp bed room suite entire with stroll-in closet, rest room, a big bed and huge picture window on the lookout out onto a sparse depiction of a lake. The full composition is whole of designs. The tiles, the carpet and the flooring all have textures that get your eye and help freeze it in location as you get the job done to recognize what you’re looking at. A substantial yellow folding display dominates the centre upper third of the perform and provides a visible rest as effectively as some course for the eyes to observe.
