Shockoe Artspace is happy to offer Shape Shifting, the first main solo exhibition in Richmond from Virginia-based artist Nikki Painter. Through a depth and breadth of blended media works spanning the ultimate five years you're able to take within the overall imaginative and prescient of a delightfully masterful maker. Painter is a kind of “Visual-Seismologist, deftly developing works that carry to undergo strangely-scaled visually-dynamic works, imaging tectonic comings and goings at numerous quotes of depth.
Moreover the sizable array of works converge into tricky patterns splintering off and shifting in ordinary and bright manners thereby creating visible states saturated in radiant shade with forms that both come collectively in a single experience whilst falling away in some other. These states produce outcomes in and across the pressure factors of the compositions thereby charging the distance with a kind of energy that supersedes the organic-structure, in-organic grounding and representational imagery. Shape Shifting promises to be really worth several encounters. They wish you'll be part of us in experiencing this stunning exhibition even as celebrating this great artist.
