“Contents Under Pressure,” a one-person exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Visiting Assistant Professor of Art Jane Fine, will be on display at Pierogi in Brooklyn from Sept. 11 through Oct. 11. An opening reception will be held at the gallery on Friday, Sept. 11, from 7 to 9 p.m.
During a 2013 Golden Foundation residency, Fine worked with chemists at the Golden Artist Colors factory in New Berlin, N.Y., where she had the opportunity to experiment with a wide range of paints and new gels, medium and inks. The experience advanced her process of “maximizing the possibilities of physicality on the painted surface.”
According to an exhibition press release, “Fine is not one to follow a safe path; she insists on taking risks with every aspect of her work, combining vibrant color, improvisational brushwork, and poured paint in off-kilter compositions.”
