ARTIST TALK | MAY 12, 2018 | 2PM
VSOP Projects is pleased to present "White Paintings", an exhibition of new works by Brooklyn and Long Island-based painter Jacqueline Ferrante. The exhibition will be on view April 21 - May 21, 2018.
Over the past 8 years, Ferrante has produced abstract paintings and photographs that investigate and mimic surfaces in our natural and built environments as they evolve as a result of accumulation, erosion, and decay. Foregoing the use of a paintbrush, Jacqueline favors the palette knife and non-traditional tools to layer, rub, splatter, and strip paint from her canvases.
While typically bold and adventurous in her explorations of color, Ferrante has chosen a more subdued palette to work from in these newest works, created while on residency at Brooklyn's Trestle Gallery. A spectrum of blue, pink, yellow, green, and violet underpaintings are all but rendered invisible with white and earth-toned surfaces. Rather than the density of the urban environment that she tends to portray, these new paintings are more suggestive of the earliest brimmings of Spring mosses, barks, and lichens.
