The Colors on My Mind

Event Details

Sunday, May 19, 2024
All day
Gallery 1308, Union South
“The Colors on My Mind” is a show of recent paintings by Blake Edison. Inspired by the rhythmic and lyrical qualities of soul music, Edison creates colorful gestural abstractions that hold complexity and radiate joy.  Seemingly both improvised and delicately considered, each work is embedded with delightful surprises–opaque smudges of muted pastel satisfyingly harmonize with fluorescent passages of acrylic paint, as a density of marks unexpectedly dances with wide open expanses of raw canvas.  Leaving each work untitled, Edison allows these visual poems to speak for themselves. The exhibition The Colors on My Mind will be open in Union South's Gallery 1308  from April 12th to May 24th of 2024. Galleries are open from 8am -10pm, Monday through Sunday.
