Two Massachusetts artists present an exhibition that demonstrates the potential of structure-based freedom. Catherine Carter’s web-like networks, extruded as fluid paint through squeeze-bottles and rooted in the configurations of hand-writing, imply energetic movement and impressionistic forms. Jeanne Williamson’s grid-based compositions derive from architectural elements ‘ both in spirit, as the artist is inspired by views of building facades under construction, and literally, as she uses lengths of orange construction fencing as a template to print through. Together, their work goes beyond its organized framework with twisting lines, bouncing shapes and glowing colors.
