Photo blog of an exhibition of paintings by Patricia Treib at Wallspace, New York, on view through December 21, 2013.
The gallery press release notes that: "Treib’s true subject is the process of looking, through which she discovers new relationships while dismantling what is merely recognizable. Treib focuses on the space between forms, making in-betweenness a primary motif. She frequently removes, adjusts and repeats precise configurations and flourishes. Peripheral elements become central presences, suggesting icons or calligraphic gestures in flux, riding on an assured, almost giddy sense of movement. A particular energy derives from Treib’s distinctive use of color, which can seem at once delicate and dynamic, measured and dancelike."
