6PM - 10PM
Slow Jam is a solo exhibition of recent paintings by Peter Shear. Playful, intimately scaled and lo-fi, these works locate meaning inside the messy relationship between viewer, object and image. From the artist's statement:
"What really sends me is artwork containing a spaciousness of address which allows for our looking to become consuming and urgent. In these moments the relationship between object and audience can be truly generative, a partnership. The gulf of meaning present in an artwork separating artist from viewer remains mysterious and it feels good operating near that place.
As I work compositions arrive and depart mostly in spite of intention; rules have been made to follow or not. Paintings take a moment or sometimes weeks and months of moments, ending unavoidably, images suspended in becoming, a place for us to develop a framework through which to see whatever we like."
A print edition made for the occasion will be available.
Additional viewing hours Saturday, February 8 from 12-5pm.
