On view now: Surface Consumption
A solo exhibition by Lisa Kellner.
Gallery 263 is proud to present our most recent Exhibition Proposal Series exhibition, Surface Consumption by Lisa Kellner. Kellner’s work explores the conditions of space while considering the superficial layer and what lies beyond it. The paintings on display in this exhibition present the surface for what it is, a dubious facade wrought with hidden layers. The included sculptural work removes the painted “canvas” from the stretcher bars and places it in three-dimensional space. The surface layer becomes a painting in space exploring the nature and fragility of facades. Pushing the limits of materials, each work reveals its infrastructure, conceding how it was made and for what purpose. Attention is paid to how space is inhabited and what occurs when place is infused with history and meaning.
Whether making paintings on stretch silk or creating sculptured spaces, each piece investigates the reliance on surface layers while exploring what is typically hidden; integrating shadow, light and layers into the work.
