Opening Reception - Friday, December 7th, 2012 6-9pm
Gurari Collections is pleased to present an exhibition entitled SIGHT LINES by the Providence artist Sean Thomas. By means of oil paint and watercolor on canvas, panel and/or paper, Sean Thomas investigates the intersection of the built environment and the residual landscape it creates. Thomas’ empirical readings of industry’s sprawl and turbulence coalesce into compositions of mass and light. Ironically, one would be lead to believe that his artwork would be heavy and ponderous, yet, much to the contrary, Thomas seems to drain away the weightiness – instead, we are left with compositions flooded with light. Buildings appear to hover animatedly over the landscape making indefinite connections to ground. He uses the two-dimensional surface in an adept way; composing within the space of the paper itself. This affords Thomas’s paintings a dimensionality suspended by the play of light and form.
Gurari Collections - hours are by appointment or Tuesday - Saturday, 11am to 6:30 pm; Sunday’s 12 – 4 pm. Telephone: 617.367.9800
