Laurie Danial - The Back of Beyond

At Froelick Gallery

Thu, Oct 04 to Sat, Oct 27


First Thursday Reception: October 4, 5 - 8pm

Exhibition tour and discussion with the artist: Saturday, October 13, 11am

My approach is intuitive, chaotic, and circuitous. Rarely do I begin a painting with a preliminary plan or tactic. Having said that, I have a lot of ideas and because I try to avoid making the same painting over and over I tend to start each painting in a different manner. It is a challenging process and there are no short cuts. I change the painting many times, erasing and obliterating previous imagery until a structure of sorts begins to emerge and resonate on multiple fronts. Contending with the paint in and of itself has its own rewards and also creates a path forward, as well as wrangling with formal constraints like color, shape, line, etc.
