NEW YORK, NY.- CHART
is presenting their third Projection exhibition with a presentation by artist Corydon Cowansage (b. 1985), featuring a new body of paintings and works on paper.
Cowansages work explores the psychology of space and the relationship between abstraction, architecture, biomorphic forms, and the body itself. Utilizing geometry and vibrant color, the artist manipulates light and shadow to distort our perceptions of physical space, reconstructing the viewers point of access to the painting. The invented forms vacillate between representation and pure abstraction, rendered recognizable but also slightly removed from reality.
In contrast, Cowansage began working on paper as a means of accessibility, resulting in a genesis of new ideas and methods for creating subsequent paintings. These meditative works allow for a process of slowing down - serving as a reflection of whats occurring in the world and the speed of it all.
Corydon Cowansage (b. 1985, Philadelphia) lives and works in New York. She holds an MFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design and a BA from Vassar College. She has had solo exhibitions at Koki Arts, Tokyo, JPN (2019); Reynolds Gallery, Richmond, VA (2019); and 17 Essex (2016). She has been included in group shows at Bronx Museum of the Arts (NY), Deli Gallery (NY), Hollis Taggert (NY), and Good Naked (NY).
Projection is an initiative alongside the main gallery programming, highlighting diverse voices in intimate presentations. Projection features artists in the naissance of their careers or those that have been overlooked, working across a variety of mediums and formats. All Projection exhibitions will take place concurrently in two venues: the downstairs gallery space and online in the Projection Room.
