Denzil Hurley: New Abstract Paintings
January 9–April 4, 2004
read catalogue essay   back to list   see current exhibitions   see upcoming exhibitions

Seattle artist Denzil Hurley presents a new series of abstract paintings that explore the push and pull of simple forms in space. His enigmatic and carefully placed dots, grids, and cloudlike shapes seem to pulse against their richly worked surfaces. Abstract painting has now been recognized for more than one hundred years, and while it is no longer surprising that nonobjective ideas can stand as works of art, Hurley's paintings remind us that abstraction can also evoke a highly spiritual visual experience. This is Denzil Hurley's first solo museum exhibition. Hurley was a visiting artist.
