This is an exhibition previewing works by fourteen painters, including myself, from Painting Projects Class I, II, & III at University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The majority of the work presented encompasses mixed media in some way shape or form. Some works include found objects and collage while others use plastic, resin and a variety of drawing materials. Some works are installed in environments in conjunction to sculptural forms while others are created on non traditional supports such as glass window panes and pink extruded polystyrene or what is sometimes called “pink foam.” The incorporation of these non traditional materials is in part an exploration of each painter’s proposed concept that they have chosen to research and investigate. The areas of study range from the ambiguity of non spaces to how women in Western culture interpret and express their sexuality. While many of these paintings address different issues there appears to be an underlying dialogue that is being exchanged both literally between painters and metaphorically through the paintings themselves. Come see for yourself this Wednesday, March 29th in the University of North Carolina at Charlotte’ s Rowe Side Gallery from 4-6 pm.
