Curves and Colors - Alan J Klawans and Andrew Werth

 "Curves and Colors"
Alan J Klawans and Andrew Werth

April 8 - May 1, 2011
Opening reception: Saturday, April 9, 2011, 2:00-6:00 pm

Abstraction takes a turn this month at Artists' Gallery in a show featuring the work of Alan J. Klawans and Andrew Werth from Friday, April 8, through Sunday, May 1, 2011.

Andrew Werth's paintings in this show comprise a body of work he calls "Centers of Narrative Gravity" where swirls of color interact with thousands of individually hand-painted marks to create interactive paintings whose appearance changes depending upon where you stand.

"I'm using a combination of color theory and metallic and reflective acrylic paints so that you'll see something different up close than you will from far away or from an angle. The paintings read differently even as the light changes over the course of a day," Werth says. He explains the show's title, "Just like in physics, where a center of gravity is a useful abstraction even though it doesn't exist in reality, the Center of Narrative Gravity is a useful metaphor for The Self - we are the centers of the stories we tell about ourselves."

Alan J. Klawans' work is the result of his observations on contemporary life. Decorative elements of buildings, ships, commuter trains and construction sites, as well as imagery from science and current events, make up the visual toolbox from which he draws. "The visual aspects of my environment, especially in an urban area, are constant sources of inspiration for me," says Klawans. "The use of wood, metal salvage, and waste paper - in the form of digital shapes and textures - are my alternatives to the traditional artist's materials of paint and canvas."

Please join us for a reception with the artists on Saturday, April 9 from 2 to 6 pm.
