Lorraine Tady: Paintings and Drawings

August 21 - September 24, 2006

Professor Tady describes the paintings selected for this exhibition as “intimate investigations into the language of painting, including topography (thick vs. thin), ‘drawing into’ vs. ‘drawing onto,’ wet into wet, wet over dry, transparency vs. opacity, tonality, structure, edge, form and space; adhesion and friction. She further explains that “the process employs diagramming, mapping, plan/elevation, cross-section, translation/re-translation inquiry (or subverting the clarity these systematic intentions may imply) allowing the images to be intuitively found, extracted, analyzed, shifted, and represented in various arrays.” Professor Tady has shown regionally and nationally since 1991, and was represented by Barry Whistler Gallery, Dallas, TX.
