Dennis Beach (foreground to rear wall): Spins #3, Fallen Column, Spins #2, Drift.
The University Museums at the University
of Delaware will present the exhibition COLOR/form: Dennis Beach/Donald
McLaughlin, on view Sept. 9 through Dec. 11 in the Old College Gallery.
COLOR/form brings together the work of two UD alumni--painter/sculptor Beach and painter McLaughlin--and will transform the stately space
of Old College Gallery into a celebration of color, from the bright hues
of Beachs sculpted ribbons to McLaughlins reinvention of Kirchners
sophisticated Berlin streets, and from the cacophony of a clown country
to the flickering movement of spinning color.
For both artists, COLOR/form represents a homecoming, an
opportunity for them to display several of their works in one of the
places where they once studied. Beach received a master of fine arts
degree from the University in 2005 and McLaughlin a bachelor of fine
arts degree from UD in 1979.
Working mainly in plywood, Beach creates a module that is repeated to
become a foundation for the interplay of the bright acrylic color. Like
the colors themselves, the results are electric.
McLaughlin opens new vistas by painting on linen, with lines curved
and straight, with colors flat and modulated, with forms that might
float free or collide.
In contrast to the polished color surfaces of Beachs works, which
belie the application of the paint by hand, McLaughlin leaves clues such as
drips of pain along the linens edge or the unfinished strokes of a
foreground flag, bringing viewers back to the substance of his medium.
There will be a reception with the artists, followed by a dance
performance courtesy of a collaborative ensemble from the UD dance minor
and Hope College dance department, on Tuesday, Sept. 15, with the
artist talks beginning at 5 p.m.
Those who plan to attend should RSVP via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 302-831-8037.
