INGA FRICK AND GILLIAN BROWN
April 13 - June 9, 2007
Special ColorField.remix Reception: Sunday, April 29 from 2-5pm
Meet the Artists Talk (along with curator Harold Linton): Saturday, May 12 at 2pm
Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, in Silver Spring, MD, is presenting FIELDWORK: PLACING SPACE IN THE COLORFIELD REMIX, an exhibition of multimedia installations. As part of the citywide celebration of Color Field painting, Gillian Brown and Inga Frick have created two new works that play with the implications of Color Field painting for our experience of space. Tracing imaginary geometries, Gillian circumnavigates the evening horizon while Inga loops the Washington Beltway at rush hour. In an earlier collaborative piece, a trio of swimmers converge and merge in a Rorschach explosion within an immersive field of water. According to artist Brown the work is “inspired by what I have always found most compelling in Color Field paintings: a play between the boldly apparent and that which cannot be readily grasped. An important aspect of these works is to subtly draw our awareness to the limitations of our perceptions.” The exhibition is curated by Harold Linton, Chairman of the Department of Art and Visual Technology at George Mason University.
Pyramid Atlantic is featured with more than 30 Washington area museums, galleries, arts organizations and businesses participating in ColorField.remix, the largest celebration of painting ever held in the Washington area. The event honors the 1950s and 1960s Color Field visual art movement and the Washington Color School, which put Washington, DC, on the art world map. ColorField.remix includes exhibitions, public art projects, artists' talks, lectures, children's programs, and special events honoring Color Field and Washington Color School painters as well as contemporary artists influenced by those movements.
