COLOR CURE: an invitational group exhibition
ZINC contemporary is pleased to present a group invitational exhibition for this very specific time in history entitled COLOR CURE. Historically trivialized, color in art has been perceived by critics as frivolous and purely decorative. Like the pioneers of Abstract Expressionism in the late 1940s paving the way with their explosions of color on canvas, these artists posit a yearning for the expressive power of color as a cure for the soul and a visual elixir.
“Seduced by the formal complexity of color, I revel in its emotive slipperiness and enjoy mining its controversial decorativeness. Tuned to the vivid and continuous absurd disparities of daily life, I weave visual rhythms—resonant, discordant, muscular, mellifluous—in patterns akin to currents and eddies, note taking, list making, pixilation and mapping.” - Martina Nehrling
