The movement of light and color is the subject of Edith Carlson's paintings. Her canvases almost breathe, their geometric forms imbued with a radiance that seems to emanate from the multiple paint layers infused with nearly imperceptible gradations of color. Color and light advance and recede, shift as one walks past or observes from a distance, gain fresh perspective as effects first unseen are newly discerned. Even at night, and with the passing of the seasons, the paintings assume a particular kind of color and glow that is often dramatically different from that of the day. in these nuances of movement are found the magic of Edith Carlson's work. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.
