In the project space: The gallery is pleased to present recent paintings by Henry Samelson. Using enamel on aluminum, Samelson’s clusters of candy-colored shapes and squiggly lines capture, what the artist refers to as, a sense of “cartoon physics.” Exploding towards the viewer, the artist’s comic abstractions chronicle glossy blobs darting, jumping, falling, and hopping in and out of pictorial events.
