Making Good Time explores different ways of marking time and features one new painting each by two artists, Richard Garrison and Alexander Oleksyn. Both artists’ work display time as a linear experience, one color or one mark after another and at the same time each painting represents the totality of the time it took to make it. Both paintings record a path…Garrison’s path of life’s mundane errands; a calendar in color of ubiquitous activities and Oleksyn’s the path of his brush guided by intense concentration; an artifact of a meditation.
Right to Left is an exhibition of new paintings in the gallery project space by Brooklyn-based artist Alexander Oleksyn. Oleksyn’s meticulously crafted, meditative line paintings originate from his desire to make a painting whose drama comes from the speed the line is drawn, in his case, a very slow line.
