Quint Contemporary Art is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by San Diego artist Allison Renshaw. The exhibition, Fragments, will run from June 1 to July 7, 2007 with a reception for the artist on June 1st from 6 to 8pm. The public is welcome.
This is Allison Renshaw's second solo exhibition at Quint Contemporary Art. Branching away from her previous highly organic and abstract paintings her new body of works are seemingly random and difficult to decipher, which creates a chaotic vocabulary that Renshaw feels is an open-source of today's culture of sampling and recycling. The paintings incorporate found fragments from magazines, art books, and advertising graphics that create a synthesis of painting and collage. In these new works Renshaw is interested in how memories occur and connect a life of partial meanings.
