Passage – Marion Landry
February 16 - March 6, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, February 16, 7–9pm
Passage – Marion Landry

Passage is the act or the process of moving through, under, over, or past something on the way from one place to another. In a literal sense, it is a pathway, a road that one can travel. Passage involves movement, direction, and depth. It stems from a desire to explore, to seek for, or to bypass something. It flirts with the idea of a before and after, implying a desire for change. Passage is both a journey and a process to be experienced through the visual senses.


The exhibition presents a series of grid paintings alongside two distinct forms of exploration: painting studies and boîtes tableaux. The first serve as markers of the process: they are inquiries, observations, and stops along the way that calls for reflection. The boîtes tableaux, on the other hand, are tactile manipulations of these questions in a three-dimensional plane. They are maquettes to bigger issues, yet exist within limited parameters and fixed boundaries. With Passage, my desire is to explore how a painting can present an alternate mapping of reality by manipulating illusions of depth, pattern, surface, color, and light.
