Monday, April 30 through Friday, August 24, 2007
Monday - Friday  8 am. to 6 pm.

Christine Hanlon and Mark Reynolds
Narrative and Geometric Paintings and Drawings

The paintings in this show are primarily from the last 5 years with mostly maritime imagery that ranges from cargo ships and oil tankers to fishing boats and industrial waterfronts. The paintings include urban night construction scenes as well. All the paintings employ a geometric system of composition and design which the Old Masters used known as Sacred Geometry or dynamic symmetry involving the ratios of the Golden Section and the root rectangles. Mark Reynolds' work is created using pure geometric grids as the artform itself, avoiding the issue of narrative content.

This gallery is on the second floor of a downtown professional building with an enormous atrium that is flooded with natural light from the 6th floor skylights all day long. The building is open to the public Monday through Friday, 8 am to 6 pm and the show may be seen by appointment on the weekends. Please contact me directly by email if you would like to see the show during weekend hours.
