The Walsh Gallery is pleased to present “Linear Thinking,” a group exhibition curated by Jeanne Brasile. Thematically, the show is an exploration of the power and potential of the line. This investigation of a single, privileged formal element demonstrates the various attributions that can be imparted to the line including architectonics, vectors, inter-connectivity, data transmission, scientific and historical studies, and line as pure form. Each of the participating artists has a unique perspective that provides a rich dialogue on a seemingly limited subject.
Participating artists include Gianluca Bianchino, William Cromar, Jillian Clark, Lorrie Fredette, Jones and Roa, Nick Lamia, Bernard Sloco and Injoo Whang. This international line-up of artists work in numerous media including
installation, drawing, sculpture and painting. The inclusion of both two and three dimensional work provides another framework through which to interpret the line, inviting viewers to further reconsider the possibilities of visual language and phenomenology.
