Currently on view at Joseph Gross Gallery in Chelsea, NY is Refuge, a solo exhibition featuring thirteen works by Peter Gronquist. The show includes all-new pieces that combine creative uses of material, such as LED lights, shaped frames, and silk flowers, with traditional painting techniques. The pieces interact with the viewer both spatially, with paintings that appear to be falling on top as they look up, such as with Master Cleanse, and visually, with its pleasant rich blue gradient. Glitch 1 and 2 appear to allude to a seismic interruption to the peaceful atmosphere contained within. The plug-in works explore both depth, with its never-ending field, and number, with its seemingly infinite army or flowers and helicopters.
Visit the show and interact with these immersive works yourself before the show closes on July 2.
