James Marshall — Aaron Karp

When: Fri., March 25, 5 p.m. and Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through April 29 2016

James Marshall> and Aaron Karp work in vastly different media: Marshall is a ceramicist and Karp a painter. But both men evince a strong interest in texture and the surface quality of the finished piece. Marshall’s asymmetrical forms are fueled by his interest in liminal states; his glossy wedges of color appear to emerge from a primordial well, still dripping with the stuff of creation. Karp’s canvases are crowded with gem-like, multi-colored orbs. Their surfaces are stippled and flecked with regular patterns that give them weight and depth in the picture plane.
