I Don't Understand

Robert Hannant

“I Don’t Understand” is a digital video installation by multi-media artist Robert Hannant. The single projection made up of multiple videos, each with its own significant soundtrack, symbolizes the fractured environment of a stranger’s mind. Each “window” of this mind laid bare is relatable on some level, forcing viewers to find themselves simultaneously caught in the uncomfortable role of both voyeur and object of scrutiny. The installation invites a personal experience, allowing each viewer to control his/her engagement. Read More

This compelling series challenged the myth of racism, demonstrating that the ambitions, responsibilities and routines of this family were no different than those of white Americans.

The Swinging Pendulum

Edward Whiteman

The Swinging Pendulum, Edward Whiteman’s twelfth solo exhibition with the gallery, features his renowned large-scale paintings created with mixed media on reconstructed paper. The wall pieces range in size from 4 to 10 feet and include familiar motifs – simple yet powerful linear forms with seductive color inspired by the environment. The artist’s paintings are unequivocally abstract but filled with possible allusions such as in The Nile, a work from the artist’s recent Egypt Series. These works feature subtler lines and more intricate patterns in earthen colors. Read More

Chromaccumulations

Pard Morrison

Pard Morrison, inspired by Donald Judd’s rectilinear, minimalist sculptures and Agnes Martin’s ethereal, though also minimalist, grid paintings, continues to explore the nature of truth and perception with his work. He believes that the current anthropomorphisation of technological devices is rapidly causing the replacement of real experience by artificial two-dimensional experience. He strives to create work that, “upon first encounter primarily reads as artificially fabricated, but upon further investigation, the visual strength of its own “objectness” is compromised by specific human mark making.” Read More
