Subtle Complexities

Curated by Melanie Christine Warner

June 1 – July 16, 2011

Garvey|Simon Art Access is proud to present Subtle Complexities, a group show featuring work by Mark Sheinkman, Dan Walsh, James Siena, and Dorothy Alig. The exhibition will run from June 1–July 16, 2011. The exhibition will be on view until 10 pm during Second Saturday Gallery Walks on June 11 and July 9.

Repetitive forms, line, and subtle shifts in value are quietly manipulated and altered in the sometimes delicate, often obsessive, and always wonderfully complex prints of abstract artists Mark Sheinkman, Dan Walsh, James Siena and Dorothy Alig. The works in this exhibition transfix the viewer via subtle color palettes, surprising details and obsessive technique—all choreographed through the simple play of depth and space. Individually, each artist strips their work down to the basic essentials of artistic expression, yet through unexpected compositions, subtle intricacies, hue variations or surface textures, the works remain complex and fully engaging.
