Pelavin Gallery is proud to announce a solo exhibition of recent work by American artist, Kate Beck. This show will include large scale poured oil paintings and graphite drawings on aluminum panel. This will be Beck’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, and in New York City.

In this new body of work, Beck continues her engagement with repetitive tonal rendering as a means of interaction between light and shadow, human thought and consciousness, and the dynamic architectonics of space. This time she takes the essence of form further by using aluminum substrates, allowing modulating marks of graphite and poured oil to accumulate and shift amidst the confines of the geometric shapes. Tension oscillates between formalistic geometry and existential space; an allusion to thought and consciousness, and the passage of time.

Opening Reception Thursday 28 October from 6 to 8 pm  Continues through 11 December 2010
