Artist Reception | Saturday, May 14, 2016 | 5:30 PM | $Free
Please join us for a reception to meet Baltimore artist Bobby Coleman and learn more about his process-driven and deeply layered paintings and constructions that echo the chaos and visual noise he encounters in daily life. Deconstructing objects, symbols, and colors found within the urban landscape, Coleman creates abstract paintings where each element is a recalled visual memory, simplified into line, color, or form. He constructs plywood panels that reference history and building, often exposing the way they were made with visible internal spaces and structural relief elements. Manipulating imagery across large-scale planes of engineered wood using latex house paint and spray paint in bright colors he builds upon imagery from previous paintings in a personal visual language that is constantly evolving. The exhibition “Bobby Coleman: Figs that Grew Out of Sawdust” will be on view in The Kay Gallery from May 4 through June 4, 2016.
