Sep 1 - Oct 1 | Opening Reception: Thursday, September 1, 5 - 8 PM
It is with great pleasure that we welcome Curtis Steiner to Traver Gallery. With Sentient, his first solo exhibition of paintings, Steiner displays a vibrant series of biomorphic shapes rendered in watercolor and gouache; abstractions that explore connection, relation, distance, and what happens when two or more entities collide, divide, and transform.
This exhibition marks a new chapter in Steiner’s career. Long celebrated for his virtuosic curation of extraordinary art and decorative objects, along with his intricate calligraphy, fine jewelry, precise illustration, and accomplished horticulture abilities, the paintings in this solo exhibition at Traver Gallery reflect his well-honed attention to craft and a new interest in the nuance of non-representational abstraction. The recurring visual motifs recall the observable rhythmic effects of nature while alluding to more subtle and poetic observations of human relationships.
