Mellifluous, porous, undulating and otherwise, surfaces serve as visual signifiers. Surface as Signifier examines conceptually abstract works that are slick, transparent, thick, thin, and heavily layered. Process, evidence of touch — or lack of touch — contributes to and shapes the content of this work. Collectively, these contrasting vernaculars point to an open sensibility that continues to limn new narratives in abstract painting.
