This show of  Elizabeth McCord's paintings "both deepens and expands upon the ongoing—and long overdue—rediscovery and reevaluation of this seminal modernist’s work. The biomorphic, hard-edge forms of the 1950s give way, in the 1960s and 1970s, to paintings that blend looser brushstrokes with tighter geometrical masses yet continue McCord’s intensely personal, near-architectural exploration of 'light and form'—a style she described in 1981 as 'a pulsating surface superimposed over a cubist architecture with transparencies, arabesques and rectangular patches.'"
