Mary Heilmann "Two-Lane Blacktop"

303 Gallery (507 W 24th St.)

poster for Mary Heilmann "Two-Lane Blacktop"

This event has ended.

For her second solo exhibition at 303 Gallery, Mary Heilmann will present recent paintings as well as related pieces at 547 W. 21st Street, and a curated group show at 525 W. 22nd.

In both shows, Heilmann examines the nature of space. Giving equal importance to physical space, the way space is depicted through imagery, and the spaces that imagery itself can conjure psychologically, Heilmann is able to extend her unique view of the infinitely retraceable paths created by the world we inhabit. The canvas of “Two-Lane Blacktop” is shaped, making the wall and the adjacent space key elements in the physical presence of the work. Moving beyond the illusory image of a road, the viewer becomes physically engaged with the painting. The forms in the painting itself implicate other spaces, not only physical, but mental and emotional as well.
