“Builders” brings together artists Katie Bell, Matt Kleberg, Keith Allyn Spencer, Benjamin Terry, Marilyn Jolly and Brad Tucker.
Through traditional and expanded modes of painting, these artists consider building a crucial element of their process. Paintings peel and bulge off the wall, or recede into illusionistic spaces of the surface. Their works focus on the formal, but they often allude to moments of narrative, wit, and humor. Each artist acknowledges tropes of abstractionists throughout history, while forging their own visual language within the contemporary dialogue of painting.
