Galerie Protégé is pleased to present VIBRATIONS, a solo exhibition of altered paint chip sculpture, paintings, and mixed media works on canvas by Carrie Sunday.
Known for her one of a kind, large scale abstractions composed entirely of individually altered paint chips, Carrie Sunday re-purposes tiny color samples to create breathtaking, expansive compositions of color, texture and graphic energy. Inspired by the early modernist work of Piet Mondrian, Sunday embeds the canvas with movement through the application of layered media that includes energetic brush strokes, winding dot work, barcodes, and other small curiosities. Color dances throughout the work in bursts and waves while the interplay of light and shadow imbue a sense of depth and mystery about the inner workings of Sunday’s structures.
VIBRATIONS is a series of new work that diverges from Sunday’s strategically organized pattern systems into various methods of accumulation and division — compositions that vacillate between the twin extremes of unity and disintegration. Sunday’s signature paint chips are piled high atop the canvas while squares of paint and colored glue dots travel across the canvas intermingling in a harmony of geometric abstraction, controlled chaos, and flowing, optic movement.
BIOGRAPHY Carrie Sunday’s works are in public and private collections in Geneva, Switzerland, Naples, Florida, Greenwich, Connecticut, and Princeton, New Jersey. Sunday’s work is permanently installed on the 5th floor at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City.
