Black and White

Karsten Creightney

Exhibition: January 3 – February 28, 2014 | Opening Reception: Friday, January 3rd, 2014 (5-8pm)

Inpost Artspace and Albuquerque-based artist Karsten Creightney are pleased to present, black and white, an  exhibition of recent prints that explore themes of loss and renewal. As an insightful contrast to his carefully chosen colorful juxtapositions that typically pervade his paintings and prints, the work in black and white, references his interest and inspiration with more minimal, German expressionist relief prints. Highlighting the stark yet elegant qualities of color in its most reduced forms, these works both celebrate and attempt to capture and recreate that same raw, direct nature of the mark making process and invite the viewer to contemplate their beauty. FREE

His work has been exhibited nationally at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Art, Flint Institute of Art, and the Springfield Museum of Art.
