Quaytman’s practice is to create installations of painted panels termed ‘chapters.’ The ongoing chapters, begun in 2001, explore formalist and conceptual variations of ideas about painting, as well as the poetic and grammatical possibilities of photography-based imagery.
“Souterrain” will consist of new objects built in response to the gallery space, a wall painting, and recent photographs from 5 different series. Lotte Lyon’s sculptures employ a pragmatism in the materials used, in the methods of assembly, and in the delivery of associative ideas.
