For The Love Of Color
Spanierman Modern is very pleased to announce its first solo exhibition of Louise P. Sloane in Miami.
Sloane’s work at first blush seems confectionery in nature because of her choice of color and texture. Upon closer, more serious examination, it becomes clear that her work is characterized by rigorous attention to formal elements such as color, shape, balance, and depth.
Sloane has continued to develop a unique composition, which straddles the lines of Minimalism, gestural abstraction, and Color Field painting. Commonly rectangles are divided into quadrants, with a square in the center, comprised of high key complementary colors. All are filled with dense lines of what resembles cursive writing, arranged horizontally on the outer quadrants and vertically on the inner square. Color, for which Sloane’s work is perhaps most celebrated, here attains an unprecedented luminosity.
