Join us at Gallery 263 for the reception of our most recent Exhibition Proposal Series exhibition, Surface Consumption by artist Lisa Kellner. Kellner’s work explores the conditions of space while considering the superficial layer and what lies beyond it. The paintings on display in this exhibition present the surface for what it is, a dubious facade wrought with hidden layers. The included sculptural work removes the painted “canvas” from the stretcher bars and places it in three-dimensional space. The surface layer becomes a painting in space exploring the nature and fragility of facades. Pushing the limits of materials, each work reveals its infrastructure, conceding how it was made and for what purpose. Attention is paid to how space is inhabited and what occurs when place is infused with history and meaning.

On View: October 18 – November 10, 2018.
