"To Name Another Thing" presents new works by Chloe West. Through the intimate and laborious act of painting, West looks at the neutral, the incidental, and the marginal. The paintings use the language of both representation and abstraction to depict objects of the everyday such as window blinds and linoleum tiles. The paintings create a fragmented sense of place, a dislocated site that the viewer navigates. Through various perspectives of space, the works both allow and deny the viewer’s gaze, giving fluctuating degrees of accessibility to deal with themes of the gaze, private/public space, and the ways in which the viewer’s body is implicated through installation. The works form a convoluted narrative that refuses to be named.
Opening reception will take place on Friday, April 13 from 6-9 PM. Event is free and open to the public.
