Gallery talk this Thursday in Hartford

Paesaggio at 100 Pearl
100 Pearl St., Hartford, (860) 233-1932
Carol Padberg: Valent Ledge
Closes Feb. 6, 2007, Gallery talk, Thurs., Jan. 25, 1:30 p.m.

As part of her show at the Paesaggio at 100 Pearl gallery in Hartford, artist Carol Padberg and critic Patricia Rosoff will participate in a gallery conversation this Thurs., Jan. 25, at 1:30 p.m.

According to Padberg's artist statement for the show, she "explore(s) paint’s materiality through my painting process, in which I methodically apply the hot wax paint and partially shave off multiple micro-thin layers of translucent synthetic colors to create a field of shifting hues."

Padberg's works are informed by the abstract and Minimalist tradition, citing as influences Ad Reinhardt, Agnes Martin and Ellsworth Kelly. She has recently turned to modernist type fonts for inspiration, extracting the letter forms from their context and their employment in one form of signification to reinterpret the shapes in the language of visual abstract design.
