DUANE REED GALLERY - The Gallery is excited to present the work of two painters who blur the lines between object and environment while creating tension and expansiveness within a vast repertoire of mark making. Oldfather’s compositions are simultaneously visceral and beautiful, sinewy and organic; while Meyer’s work combines fluidity and structure with loose yet highly technical morphing fields of pattern.
DANA OLDFATHER - “I propose a multidimensional diagram of anxiety and the desire to overcome it. The paintings allow me to transform my feelings of dread and insecurity into something physical, tangible, and beautiful; a bittersweet beauty that is brightened by the shadow it casts.”
ETHAN MEYER - Meyer’s work explores the relationship of multiple planes of reality relating to both mind and spirit that visually describe the fluidity of consciousness. The surfaces of his work are covered with densely intricate patterns that map the landscapes of, otherwise difficult to describe, sensations and experiences.
