Barry Pelzner: (Ir)regular

1 May - 2 June 2018


"These paintings are the result of my ongoing interest in infinitely repeating two-dimensional patterns. The paintings are at once utterly abstract and utterly concrete. Abstract in that they allude to, without stipulating them, the rules that generate the patterns they contain. Concrete in that the paintings are about nothing whatever except the black and white shapes that comprise them. To combat the inherent stasis of still images, I've attempted, with varying success, to make time's arrow point in two directions in the work-toward becoming and also un-becoming." -Barry Pelzner
