Joanne Mattera photo blogs a visit to the exhibition Color as Structure at McKenzie Fine Art, New York, on view through August 2, 2014. The show includes works by Paul Corio, Richard Garrison, Rob de Oude, Mel Bernstine, Jason Karolak, Maureen McQuillan, Holly Miller, Alain Biltereyst, Martha Clippinger, Richard Roth, Cordy Ryman, Deborah Zlotsky, Kate Shepherd, Elise Ferguson, Don Voisine, and Richard Caldicott.

Mattera notes that the show features "16 artists for whom color and structure intertwine, either to create a suggestion of dimensional space or to invigorate a planar surface with pattern, repetition, or optical effects... While all of the works are strong individually and offer a cogent visual narrative as installed, I found myself drawn to the conversations between and among certain works. "
