Approaching Form is a preview of work by emerging painters with upcoming 2016 solo exhibitions at Studio Sixty Six.
The paintings sampled in the exhibition include the work of Gabriela Avila-Yiptong, who interprets real geography through a spectrum of emotional and cultural memory. Shelby Dawn Smith invokes the energy of gesture, exploring palettes of tension and harmony. Natalie Bruvels questions beauty as sublime, balancing her representation with a suggestion of discomfort. Jordan Clayton creates evocative images inspired by biological processes, and reminding at once of calligraphy and landscapes.
