“Grids” by James Radcliffe


Posted in Events, MKT BAR, News
Radcliffe-Exhibit-Event-Detail

This exhibition features large and small-scale works on paper that explore relationships between line, color, and space. In spite of the presence of geometric repetition, Radcliffe’s works display a spontaneity and sincerity that makes even the smallest piece speak loudly to the viewer. “Grids” is an exhibition of powerful pieces, full of colorful vibrancy and depth.

James Radcliffe is a Houston-based artist currently pursuing an MFA in painting from the University of Houston. He produces his drawings and paintings on found and salvaged supports to add an underlying history upon which his marks elaborate. RadcliffeJames explores abstractions derived from a repetitious mark-making activity which employs color, or the lack thereof, to engage the viewer. Radcliffe has exhibited at Project Row Houses, DiverseWorks, Alabama Song Art Space, and was recently awarded a 2015 Idea Fund Grant.

All artwork will be available for purchase. Exhibition organized by Charisse Weston

EXHIBITION: February 11 – April 4, 2015
OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday, February 11, 7-9PM. Meet the artist at 9PM.
COST: Free admission. Food, drinks and all artwork will be available for purchase.
