March 24 - May 14, 2016
Light has been a subject of interest for generations of artists, however only in the last century has light itself become a material for art. With the technological advancements of the 20th and 21st centuries, light became notable for its ability to transform space and alter perception. This spring, five international artists who use light as a primary medium are featured at C. Grimaldis Gallery: Chul Hyun Ahn, François Morellet, Erwin Redl, Annette Sauermann, and Jan Van Munster.
Extended hours: March 29 - April 2, 2016 | 10a.m. - 9p.m.
C. Grimaldis Gallery will be extending its regular hours for the course of Light City Baltimore.
Carol Miller Frost
November 19, 2014 - January 10, 2015
Exploring the luminosity, ambiguity, and relativity of space, Carol Frost’s “Shifting Light” is a body of abstract paintings that explore the physical presence of light. Painting in a reductive manner by limiting her palette to monochromatic color schemes, Frost plays with ideas of optical illusion and spatial ambiguity with layers of hard-edged and dissolving planes of color. At first glance, there is a disarming simplicity to the work, however further investigation reveals a complex pictorial space that can be disorienting, as well as provocative in its negotiation between simultaneous expressionism and reductivism, emotion and intellect.
Frost has exhibited extensively throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and at a national level at institutions such as the McClean Project for the Arts (McClean, VA), the Delaware Art Museum (Wilmington, DE), and the Kennedy Museum of Art (Athens, OH). Her work belongs in numerous public and corporate collections including the Baltimore Museum of Art (Baltimore, MD), the Musée Cheateau de Rochefort (Rochefort-en-Terre, France), and the Univeristy of Richmond Museum (Richmond, VA).
