We’re excited to present Eric Sall’s exhibition “Rhythm don’t Rhyme,” on the heels of his inaugural presentation at the Dallas Art Fair this past April. Debuting at the gallery Sall will showcase eight new paintings that deal with ‘push and pull’, two opposing forces, within his work:- Ground/Surface; Figure/Ground; Form/Feeling; Process/Product; Attraction/Repulsion; Texture/Atmosphere; Chance/Intention; Crudeness/Nuance; Stability/Ambiguity. Sall plays with these dichotomies via his fields off color, pushing the works into a new rhythm.
Sall’s work alludes to a narrative that makes sense, even though upon closer inspection the strokes are jolted or discombobulated. Their rhythmic patterns are grounded by a strict understanding of painting, where the ground is the weave of the canvas, and the protagonist is the paint. This unique and stubborn dedication is carried through to his color composition which he assigns different values from receding to confrontational. Pairing tonalities which would normally clash become an accepted norm. We are in Sall’s world that he orchestrate for us and his paintings, have on their own terms and logic rhythm.
