Born Empty, Died Full
New paintings by Howard Oransky.
May 3—June 9, 2012
Form+Content Gallery presents Born Empty, Died Full, an exhibition of new paintings by Howard Oransky. The gallery architecture, which divides the space into 7 walls, reminded the artist of the creation story of 7 days: six days of work and one day of reflection.
The paintings are divided by a horizontal seam which serves as a metaphorical horizon line, suggesting the passage of longitudinal time. The brushwork, which moves vertically through the compositions, suggests the passage of internal time. The artworks in Born Empty, Died Full rely on the basic language of painting: color, light and gesture, to suggest an open narrative of experience and introspection.
