PRIMER GREY

18 JAN - 21 APR 2019

 

Primer Grey, Centers for Gravity, explores the materiality of paint as color and medium as well as the effect of natural forces upon those materials. Corday primes a metal surface and collects the grey primer in the lower corner of the rectangle, indicating the gravitational pull toward the Earth’s core. The grey pigment is a literal concentration of materials directed toward a center, which we read instead as a corner, suggesting ambiguous notions of direction or center—a theme that runs throughout the CAMstl exhibition.
