August 28–September 25: Moments by John Michael Byrd

Below: John Michael Byrd, From The Sky 2014 watercolor and acrylic on grommeted mylar 30x40”

"“Moments” consists of a recent series of mid-size pieces (all roughly 24x30 inches) based on the concept of animation cels. These paintings are done on clear mylar and grommeted to resemble plastic production signs/cels. The transparency of the mylar allows the stark whiteness of the hanging wall to act as the white ground for the images. The planes of the forms undulate as the viewer moves around the painting. And, as they are lit, the colors and forms of the images float, ghost-like, from the wall."
