Michael Sorgatz posts about the exhibition Deborah Zlotsky: Adjacent Possibilities at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts, on view through November 12, 2011.
The gallery notes that Zlotsky "borrows from the scientific term which refers to the way organisms and systems seek alternative states of being by shifting slightly from a designated path. When this happens, more complex relationships emerge... Within each painting, abstract forms not only appear to be figuring themselves out, but competing for space of the canvas. The bold blocks of color collide and push into one another, generating more complex relationships and inevitably push the canvas to appear ever evolving."
