Opening Reception: Saturday, November 18 from 6-8pm
Pazo Fine Art is pleased to announce New River, Kate Sable’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, featuring new and recent paintings. New River will be on view in Washington D.C. at 1932 9th Street NW, #C102 (Enter from 9 ½ Street) from November 18, 2023, through January 13, 2024. An opening reception will take place on Saturday, November 18th, from 6 to 8 PM.
Kate Sable’s abstract paintings are characterized by undulating curves, lush paint handling, and an intuitive approach to image construction. Her creative process is deeply rooted in the materials and physical act of painting, which serves both as means of visual investigation, as well as a conduit for her to explore personal metaphors and touchpoints. Her painted forms probe at and challenge the concept of boundaries, from the curvilinear edges of her shapes themselves, to the literal borders of the canvas, generating a teetering sense of movement and balance. This show is Sable’s second solo presentation at the gallery, and it takes its name from the New River, which she grew up alongside. As this title suggests, her paintings and practice are characterized by a churning flow of images and ideas, a mercurial process that yields works that always feel freshly made, energetic, and ever-new.
A booklet with an essay by New York City based artist, curator and writer Jacob Cartwright will be published to accompany this exhibition.
