Painting Expanded is a dynamic group exhibition featuring artwork from a new generation of artists whose works share a formal nature that is primarily material-based abstraction. Each piece is rooted in the conceits of painting, but features a composition achieved through a means that is unconventional and/or uses non-traditional media in thought-provoking ways, incorporating aspects of process, performance, and sculpture. Highlighting work by emerging artists who are exploring experimentation near the more radical edge in the creative process, this show features new methods of process in art making, pushing the definition of what still might be considered painting today.
