July 30 - October 10
SLATE contemporary is pleased to presentColor Fields,featuring painting by Juan Alonso-RodrÃguez and photography by Carol Inez Charney. While working in two different mediums, Alonso-RodrÃguez and Charney both address the expansive nature of color, light, and space.
The exhibition's title references the Color Field painting movement of the 1950s and 60s, which anchored compositions around large, immersive fields of color and illusions of deep space. The aim of Color Field painters was not to emphasize images, brush strokes, or impasto, but rather to create a swath of color that was sensory and immaterial. While the artists that SLATE is presenting do not adhere strictly to this tradition, there are core elements of their work that are informed by, and resonate with it.
