SLATE contemporary gallery is pleased to present Of Method and Material: an exhibition showcasing the unique materials and artistic practices of three mixed-media artists. Kerith Lisi cuts and re-assembles book covers to create compositions that present a mastery of color theory and speak to the poetic nature of the material she works with. By repurposing old books that would otherwise be recycled, she is able to create something new and unexpected. In his works on paper, Brian Singer explores the printed word as a visual representation of information, attempting to uncover new meaning in what is becoming an outdated form. His process involves cutting thousands of book pages and organizing their edges into alternate views of the texts, exposing geometric patterns and textures. Hadley Williams‘ work is the culmination of her interest in mixed-media exploration and meticulous attention to pattern and arrangement. Williams’ recent works incorporate paper, gouache, acrylic and graphite on canvas. She cuts vintage paper to make a grid of individual units that she then connects with another layer, such as graphite circles, sprayed acrylic paint, circles made of gouache on watercolor paper, or pinholes.
