The Inpost Artspace opens the Fall season with an exhibit of new work by Titus O'Brien.  With these recent drawings, O’Brien constructs luminous designs overlaying mark and color reminiscent of arbors, mazes, and arabesque patterns.  He states, 'The drawings in this exhibition were conceived as studies for paintings intended to be called “Beatitudes.” The drawing process often has a heightened sense of investigation. Here, the concrete investigation is into how a series of game-like systems, shaped by an engaged intuition, are used to deploy line and color across a two-dimensional surface to compelling effect. The telos - the direction or meaning - of this labor is the desire to produce (both for the artist and viewer) a shift in attention that is in some way uplifting and settling, enlivening and reassuring. In other words, to express something true and good.' THIS IS A FREE EVENT!
