Gestural Pop


Rachel Jones & David Sullivan

October 8-November 6 2009

Opening Reception

& Artist Talk

Thursday Oct 15 6-8pm

Formally trained painters, Rachel Jones and David Sullivan negotiate the complex relationship between Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art; two major painting movements of the 20th century. Jones’ murky figurative pastorals coupled with Sullivan’s neon color palette and inventive use of materials blur the styles of Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. The formal and conceptual issues presented in the exhibition, Gestural Pop consistently challenge contemporary artists working today.
