The Fenestra Series: 20 April – 9 May
ARTIS Gallery presents a new body of work by Ron Left. The title of the exhibition, The Fenestra Series, is derived from the Latin word fenestra which refers to a window, but also more widely to an opening, a niche or portal.
The paintings in the series do not represent actual windows and the Fenestra title serves not as a description, but as an entry into the works through analogy. The paintings are more concerned with liquid moving states than tangible, settled ones. The works generate an array of different types of movement and transformation.
There are multiple energies in the works; the painterly flows and runs, the vertical spine-like movement beyond the frame, hints of grids migrating in all directions.
