Inside/Out will be on exhibition until April 30th at the Kingston’s Harrison Avenue location.
The Kingston Gallery writes,
Embodying the abstract tradition of intuitive exploration through drawing and painting, Inside/Out is an exhibition of bold new work by Barbara Moody. Electrifying the space with color, shape, line and subtleties of surface Moody employs a range of materials to create large-scale drawings on Tyvek, an industrial construction material of thin plastic. The vast expanse of Moody’s drawings creates virtual shifts and collisions in space, full of chaos, tremors, and foreboding. “When I make the large drawings, it’s like a performance; fast, wild mark-making, drips, changing whole sections from dark to light with broad strokes.” Moody uses multiple perspectives and viewpoints in Inside/Out to generate a sense of immersion in the space, enveloping the viewer in a visually rich, mysterious environment.
