Gallery 307 is pleased to announce the opening of Recent Drawings and Paintings by Robert Ludwig.
Ludwig creates work using horizontal and vertical lines to create simple geometric divisions. Utilizing charcoal, paint, pastels and graphite, these divisions are then filled with a rich and subtle monochromatic color. The geometric format, combined with tonal and spatial interplay, and the vigorous hand of the artist create an optical ambiguity between the open and closed space. Ludwig work engages the viewer in this delicate visual balance.
Gallery hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-5pm
