Blank Space Gallery presents a solo exhibition by Stanford Kay.
Stanford Kay shows his continuing series of paintings inspired by books or bookcases in his first one person exhibition in Chelsea. Kay works the edge between the abstract and the referential and explores his subject from a variety of formal directions. Books as images within these paintings offer formal modernist possibilities while also serving as an embodiment of content.
“A book requires the reader to assemble images and ideas out of its signs and symbols. Likewise, a painting asks that you translate its strokes and drips into reason and emotion.” —Stanford Kay
