The exhibition Boundaries features the work of five artists, Mairikke Dau, Sarah Fleming, Youjin Moon, Vicki Piron, and Tyler Schiedt. The exhibition divides the language of painting into five thematic sections, color, shape, light, material, and space. Mairikke’s vibrant use of color investigates pictorial perception with actual visual conflict. Sarah folds her canvas’ into specific shapes to call attention to the physical interaction of painting as object. Youjin manipulates projected image to create a sensory experience of painting with light. Vicki infuses the art-making process with the variously faceted languages of her materials. And Tyler’s use of space focuses on the fleeting moments of our world, specifically on individual relationships to the environment. By combining these elements we begin to break down the threshold between painting and viewer. The exhibit is centered primarily on how the viewer’s interaction with the work will effect their perception of painting.
