PLYOS

Tessa Greene O’Brien, Tollef Runquist, Jamie Gray Williams

April 30, 2022 - May 28, 2022

Plyos is a group exhibition of paintings by Tessa Greene O’Brien, Tollef Runquist, and Jamie Gray Williams presented in tandem with Neil Welliver’s early figurative paintings. These artists utilize bold colors, gestural techniques, and loose approaches to representing figures and spaces. The Greek roots of the word plyo refer to an increase, a pushing of limits, just as these painter’s test the limits of the canvas borders with implied action, layers of movement folding in on themselves. In these works color becomes a force and subject as important as the imagery. They capture the viewer, allowing us to fall into the work and be consumed.
