Kelly Neidig solo exhibition ‘Color.Field.Redux’ at Elroy Artspace in Portland, Oregon, 1st Thursday, November 2009
Kelly Neidig : Color.Field.Redux
Kelly Neidig’s main interest is color – and she fills the canvas with it using a process largely eschewing the typical tools, reaching instead for paddles and a wallpaper straight edge to create paintings that evoke a motion that pulls us into them…
And once inside, we investigate with Neidig mans’ consuming encroachment into nature through her use of light and color combinations which cull from us our own emotions and memories of un-fouled environments…
With Color.Field.Redux, Neidig abstracts these human fabrications of strip malls and box stores, housing developments and billboards, gas stations and fast food restaurants into brightly colored stripes which grant them forgiveness by the nature they’ve usurped…
In a world blanketed with man-made detritus, permeating our lives and our experience of an untarnished nature - a blurring of the line is created between the true colors
of nature and how they are seen through eyes trained to know only schemas of them...
Please enjoy an evening out enjoying Portland arts on 1st Thursday with Kelly Neidig – visit the Color.Field.Redux show opening at Elroy Artspace from 5-9pm. Elroy Artspace is located at 1720 NW Lovejoy, at street level in the Activespace building - across from Relish and Cork, and conveniently on the trolly line…
