OPENING RECEPTION INVITATION
Please join us on Thursday, September 15th from 7 – 9pm for the opening reception of a solo show featuring new works by Tlingit artist, Mark Preston.
Void is an exploration of what can be realized through lack of colour and de-contextualization of traditional forms. Clarity, peacefulness, and tolerance are encouraged and facilitated through minimal lines and a white colour palette. The pieces are intentionally untitled to promote unique interpretations.
Throughout Mark’s work, traditional Northwest Coast formline shapes are recontextualized as cutouts in paper panels, becoming small oases of negative space within a vastness of white. The ‘ovoid’ is thus playfully transformed into a literal ‘void’.
