This event has ended.

This selection of paintings and drawings by Saul Chernick and Ernest Concepcion reveal two different adaptations of the vernacular, gestural line seen frequently in comic strips, graffiti and street art. While retracing the development of continued linear movement, both artists transform banal, everyday imagery into abundantly complex fantasies. Chernick’s two-tone drawings focus on the individual mark as a critical component, forming a bridge to classical drawing while piecing together phantasmagoric representations. In complimentary fashion, science fiction underlies Concepcion’s work, which begins as an empty landscape that is quickly tagged with spaceships, robots and mythical beasts battling each other in an imaginary war. This exhibition explores the pictorial tensions of sequential art as the drawn line evolves gradually from one subject into another.
