MeGhan Calhoun :: SHared Nails
April 12th - June 1, 2014
Proof Gallery is pleased to present Shared Nails an exhibition of new work by Meghan Calhoun.
Working through an iterative process of a multitude of studies, Calhoun's thinking is visual, physical and apparent. She works economically: recycling and tweaking forms and colors, nudging compositional shifts and "reshuffling possibilities". In Shared Nails the act of holding her hands in front of her eyes yields shapes and views which she reexamines and works into liminal abstractions. Images teeter in and out of focus as does the relationship of figure to ground. On view is the anatomy of Calhoun's thoughts, an involution of persistent almost nagging momentum yielding moments of sublime resolution.
Meghan Calhoun is an artist and educator based in New York. She has exhibited widely, most recently at the Milton J. Weil Art Gallery in New York City and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. She was recently an artist-in-residence at Atlantic Center for the Arts. She received her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and her BFA from the University of Oregon. This is her first solo exhibition in Boston.
