Opening Reception: Saturday, January 12 from 5pm to 7pm
Invention/Intention features paintings by Delna Dastur and Maryanne Pollock. These two abstract painters both make works created through a delicate and magical blend of intentional, planned process and improvisational experimentation.
“It will be fascinating to see the work of these two artists in a visual conversation, as each brings years of work and study and teaching in the field to bear and to blend with their experimental and spirited approach to painting,” said MPA Exhibitions Director Nancy Sausser.
Maryanne Pollock’s exuberant works combine painting and printmaking techniques to create abstractions with calligraphic marking and patterning influenced by time spent living and working in Egypt.
Delna Dastur, also an abstractionist, uses architecturally inspired compositional structure to make intricately layered lyrical paintings that display atmospheric experiments based on both honed skilland intuition.
Invention/Intention: Works by Delna Dastur and Maryanne Pollock runs January 10 through March 2, 2019 at MPA@ChainBridge.
MPA@ChainBridge is located at 1446 Chain Bridge Road, McLean, VA.
