MARGIE LIVINGSTON POSTPONED TO WEEK 3- JANUARY 25
Most painters are, abstractly speaking, sculptors of paint, building images through the careful application of layered pigments. But Livingston pushes this idea to an extreme in her construction of three-dimensional forms. The result is a body of work that might prod paint off the palette, but nevertheless keeps it as a medium very much in the limelight.-Suzanne Beal
“Letting accident and discovery meet invention and experimentation, my goal is to make works that surprise me and pull me into new territory as I investigate the properties of paint pushed into three dimensions.”
