The Fort Point Arts Community is pleased to announce the inaugural exhibition for the 2014/15 season new series of shows at the FPAC Gallery juried by Julie Garfield Reich, independent art dealer.

Reconfiguring Abstraction features the work of two Boston artists, Lisa Russell and Mary Bucci McCoy. Painters Russell and Bucci McCoy present intimately scaled work that, in different ways, abstracts lived experience into sensual painted languages. These languages are engaged with the essential dialectical issues of relationship, space, and material. Each artist shares a succinct and tactile affinity for paint as substance, acknowledging both its physical and emotive presence. Their studio practice falls within the established traditions of abstract expressionism while being forward thinking in its formal presentation.

Lisa Russell uses close observation of carefully constructed still life arrangements as the starting point for her paintings. Prolonged visual analysis yields information about form, space, and perception, which become the building blocks of her carefully structured paintings. Works presented here by Russell are inclusive of her spring 2011 Rhode Island College sabbatical project, Emotive Qualities: Color, Light, and Space.

Mary Bucci McCoy's spare paintings on plywood panels begin with an intuitive engagement with color and with paint as material. Her paintings are indirectly informed by experience and observation of the landscape, nature, and the human body. Bucci McCoy is a 2012 Massachusetts Cultural Council Painting Fellow and is represented by Kingston Gallery, Boston and Gray Contemporary, Houston, TX.

This exhibition is curated by James Montford, director of Bannister Gallery at Rhode Island College, Providence, RI, and FPAC member.
