    Chuck Seerey: Surface Tension

    In science the definition of surface tension is a contractive tendency of the surface of a liquid that allows it to resist an external force. This is not, however, the meaning intended for the paintings in this show. The words are being used in a more figurative sense. Instead, as it is being referred to by the use of these two words in the title for the show, it is a balanced relation between opposing elements on a two-dimensional surface.

    The works selected for this show feature abstract paintings that explore movement, form, and space within the picture plane. Patterns, textures, and forms are deconstructed and reconfigured to create new rhythmic patterns that repeat at regular and irregular intervals with a strong emphasis on texture and color. The interest is in the process and craftsmanship of making artwork and emphasizing surfaces that call to mind the past, that have accrued character through time, to instill in the painting a sense of realness.
