Exhibition: Adam Sipe: Ring Wren & Turtle
Adam Sipe's series of small paintings on display at the Dodd Galleries work in a similar way, both a mumble and a command. Sipe works quickly and intuitively, a continual negotiation between marks on the canvas. What emerges from this call and response are swift meditations on color, space, and line. Abstract and vaguely figurative, the paintings engage with a lineage of modernist painting recalling late Picassos and Morandi's still lifes.
Sipe was born in Greensburg. PA. He studied painting at Penn State University, Temple Rome, and the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College. He has exhibited at the Ulrich Museum of Art, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon, and the 1926 Gallery in Chicago. Sipe lives and works in New York City.
