“Moments of Impermanence” Oil and alkyd on canvas
Opening reception: Friday, September 4, from 6-9 pm
Deeply intrigued by the Buddhist notion of impermanence, San Francisco artist Tracy Taylor Grubbs uses paint to reconcile the fixed perspective of her individual experience with the concept of a universe in eternal flux. She finds hints of it everywhere: a smear of sky in a car bumper, a lazy disintegration of form in a chair leg. The images in her paintings seem to flicker on the outer edge of reality. Through her painting practice Grubbs seeks to reveal how the static experience of a stationary view can give way to the ecstatic possibilities of the ephemeral.
