“Fugue States” twenty six new paintings by Virginia Bryant, will open at the Chapel & Cultural Center in Troy New York, April 2 and will show through May 27 2019. The artist will be present for a reception April 26th at 6:30PM.
The title comes from musical structures & the physicality which are a core part of her methods. This originates in several years of early ballet study and choreographic processes.
Her paintings have been featured in exhibitions such as “A Sense of Place” at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, “Florida Contemporary” at the Baker Museum in Naples,“A Painter’s Progress” at Florida Gulf Coast University and most recently “To the North” at Thomas Aquinas College at Sparkill, which was her first solo exhibition in New York State. Her paintings are collected internationally & have garnered awards and press nationally.
The paintings have musical structures in the sense that the patterning has variance, rather than the exact patterning of applied design. The fugal structure investigated repeats patterns using the two dimensions of the canvas to create contrapuntal & polyphonic synchronizations. Concern with harmony in the form of balance is a key attribute of this practice.
Morgan T Paine of Florida Gulf Coast University says, “Bryant’s work connect with and expands the vocabulary of abstract painting” and John Casey of the Island Sun, also in Florida, dubbed her painting “Abstraction at its best.”
