GRID FURNISHINGS, 944 N. High St. 614-725-4292 W-M 12:30-6p. MAY/JUNE: Indra’s Net featuring the artwork of Matthew Gallagher, graduating senior at Oberlin College and one of seven winners in the sixth annual Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts competition sponsored by the Association of Independent College and Universities of Ohio (AICUO). “A turning point in my art came when I took a color theory class in fall 2011. I realized that sonic and visual ideas could work in synergy. I began to think of paint as if the medium were akin to the radioactive dye injected into MRI patients. I learned quickly that I could use paint to map energies in a similar fashion. It was then that I began using a rubber band to craft my paintings. I thought of the rubber band as a guitar string or oscillator. The marks it made as I snapped it like a bow string against the canvas were distinctly sonic in a way that I could not reproduce with my hand and a brush. I realized that the energy transferred from the rubber band into the paint was contained in the painting even after the process had been finished. Even though kinetic energy was no longer present in the art object, there was a kineticism to the aesthetic and composition of my paintings that I connected with.” Information about Grid Furnishings is at www.GridFurnishings.com.
