The Clemente, as part of its arts professionals-juried exhibition series, is pleased to present Incise, Echo and Repeat, a show about fracturing in current painting curated by Kylie Heidenheimer and Camilla Fallon.

These painters twist and fracture space within the frame in myriad ways. They improvise with form, structure, surface, touch and playful gesture. Is fracturing a zeitgeist in contemporary painting? A few reference still life and nature, replete with synthetic objects, as well as urban spaces that include construction sites or architectonic abstraction. Others fracture space with gesture and activate it in the paintings’ frames through geometric or organic linear division. Fracturing and fragmenting exist in various forms and serve different purposes. There is order and disorder in nature: fracturing can be arbitrary, as in an earthquake, or ordered, as in the breaks of a crystal or schist with the same or similar patterning. Geometry plays a role in both painting and nature. Fractured space in the former is one manifestation and can be architectural, ordered, chaotic, explosive or finally, fragmented.

2018 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant Program Recipient

The Painters and Sculptors Grant Program was established in 1993 to acknowledge painters and sculptors creating work of exceptional quality through unrestricted career support. The first year of grants was awarded in 1994 and the Foundation has funded individual artists annually since that time.

The Foundation currently awards $25,000 to twenty-five artists through a nomination process. Nominators from across the country are invited to recommend artists, at any stage in their career, who are currently under-recognized for their creative achievements, and whose practice would significantly benefit from the grant. In an anonymous process, a jury panel then selects the twenty-five awardees. Nominators and jurors include prominent visual artists, curators, and art educators who are dedicated to supporting artists.
