ASHES/ASHES presents I was looking at the black and white world (it was so exciting), a group exhibition curated by Michael St. John, featuring Darja Bajagić, Gretchen Bender, Karin Davie, Nico Day, Cheryl Donegan, Bill Jacobson, Gary Stephan, Michael St. John, and Mark Verabioff.

Last year at this time our lives derailed and stopped. It was then that I began a new series of paintings in a black and white palette.. The absence of color seemed like an appropriate response. While doing this, this exhibition came to mind as a response to a world without color. The artists chosen are ones I came across through social media and remembrances of things seen while self-isolating. These aren’t meant to be exhaustive, but a record of one artist imagining a room of black and white in a world without color.
