David Rhodes Centrum Residency - 12-18 December 2011
David Rhodes makes abstract paintings of vertical lines over black space. At a distance the stripes create a physical disorientation, close up though, the artist's interest in the surface of paint is revealed. His deliberate permitting of accidental imperfections opens up the possibility for an emotional as well as an intellectual response. David Rhodes lives and works in Berlin.
For his residency at Centrum David Rhodes will be animating his black and white paintings. By using painted tubes instead of flat canvases, he will be able to play with the movement his paintings create. Spinning, leaning, hanging, he will experiment with the tubular paintings in space.
The Finissage takes place at 19.00 on Friday 16 December and we are also open Saturday 17 14.00 - 18.00 December or by appointment.
