Overlays

January 6, 2018 – February 10, 2018

Featuring works by

Sol LeWitt, Giulio Paolini, and Richard Smith

Giulio Paolini, an Italian artist most often associated with the 1960’s ‘movement’, “Arte Povera”, works with and through found objects, drawing, photography, sculpture and installation to explore ideas of absence, centrifugal and centripetal forces, continuation, repetition and variation, all within the framework of art-making as visual subject.  His 1999-2000 piece, “Carte Noire”, utilizes the artistic technique of one point perspective (a method of representing three dimensions/depth/scale in two dimensions), along with sections of images he has created and utilized in various other prior works.  Each of these images uses representation (perspective, dimension, movement and/or time).  However, even with this ability to read the various two dimensional images as exploring deeper, things, as a whole, don’t quite make sense together as no one linear narrative is conveyed.  This conundrum of comprehension is the basis of the piece – with the one-point perspective seemingly exploding out from the middle.  With this in mind, the work takes pride in the regenerative nature of looking in and out, as well as back and forth.
