Key Projects is pleased to present A Familiar Line, an exhibition featuring Joanne Freeman, Mel Prest and Carol Salmanson.
A Familiar Line features artists whose work in painting, drawing and light expresses their relationship with line and movement. Each artist is developing a singular language of straight, circular or jagged lines, which are hand drawn or stenciled. The repeated line is familiar, but its occurrence is an exploration.
Joanne Freeman’s paintings of circular, looping lines – an extension of the artist body – elegantly convey a rhythmic dance using a subtle pallet of red, blue, green and yellow. Mel Prest’s paintings read as a system of straight and overlapping lines that vibrate the plane. Close inspection reveals the artist’s hand; the lines quiver, come in and out, creating a sense of imbalance. Carol Salmanson’s dynamic and playful jagged lines flutter and flicker, capturing light-like movements in her “Calligraphic Transmissions.”
