Dolby Chadwick Gallery is thrilled to announce Buoyant, an exhibition of recent work by Robert Kingston, on view during the month of November.
Set against a foundation of muted, off-white acrylic, Kingston’s paintings are deceptively soft-spoken creations. Sit with them in meditation and their labyrinthine surfaces quickly give way to reveal countless layers of movement, gesture, and erasure. From their depths arises a delicate balance between spontaneity and intention, wherein improvisation converges with deliberate and controlled brushwork. Free-floating forms—from organic shapes and expressionistic gestures to highly precise line drawings—pass through and across the compositions like animated musical notes. Reminiscent of archaic cave drawings as well as modern-day pictograms and scientific symbols, these forms convey a lineage that spans the annals of history while nevertheless finding firm footing in the contemporary.
Dolby Chadwick Gallery is open by appointment only. Please schedule an appointment for a private viewing or request a virtual tour of the exhibition by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
