Abstract paintingSea-Change by Ruth Lantz

Exhibit dates: September 6 – October 24
Location: Science and Engineering Building Gallery

Sea Change. A series of paintings by Ruth Lantz that distill the ambiguity of visual appearances. Commingling abstraction and representation, the approach to this body of work is through a series of filtration systems: perceptual, process driven, and painterly. These tensional forces are compiled to examine the continual translation, overlap, and fracture implicated by sight. This method produces a build-up of complexity and a breaking apart of information that aims to capture the moments between identification and uncertainty.
