Ellen Salk: Studio Practice

September 21–November 2, 2019

Opening Reception: Friday, September 20, 6:30–8:30 PM


Ellen Salk’s Studio Practice will exhibit the preparatory studio work which leads to the development of her newest series. In searching for new imagery which would allow her to introduce more color and break from the organizing principles of her previous body of work, she revisits prints done by the great Japanese artists of the Edo period, exploring complexity and reduction, and creating quick, intuitive collages. These precede her most recent paintings, a few of which will be included in this exhibition.
