One Painting’s History

Tuesday, Oct. 16 | Reception for the Artist, 4:30-5:30 p.m.

One Painting’s History centers around one large fully realized painting and some of the numerous studies and drawings related to the work. The precarious configuration of Trap, 2015, captures a visceral sense of emotional tension. Saulnier has described his process as "beginning with improvisations that then lead to much 'searching through the dark’ trying to realize his vision. One work folds into another, ideas multiply, separate and divide."
