Breaking free from the confines of stretcher bars and embracing a more textile built form.

First Friday Opening: February 3, 2023
5 – 8pm in the Gallery.

Christopher Iseri’s practice engages modes of structure, association, and experimentation to make work that uses the familiar to arrive at the unfamiliar; objects occupy space between depiction and abstraction. Over the last four years, his work has transitioned from working with layered tracing paper and ink to sewn canvas and flashe, developing a distinct set of visual variables with these materials from which he mines his compositions. The palette is restrained to black, white, and primary color, while variation of line and gesture are repeated across works. Chris considers these parameters rigid until the material itself takes hold; canvas is often cut, layered, collaged, and sewn back into place. Stray thread, frayed edges, and marks made in the past contrast with crisp lines, precise drop shadows, and flat swathes of vibrant color, shuttling the viewer into an orbiting cycle of permuted spaces, all sharing a common visual lexicon.

This show will showcase work that will be more asymmetric in form, breaking free from the confines of stretcher bars and embracing a more textile built form.
