Jarvis Hall Gallery is pleased to open the fall season with two solo exhibitions by Larissa Tiggelers and Jeremy Pavka

Larissa Tiggelers’ abstract painting process includes withdrawing from external concerns into intensive and contemplative colour mixing. She disregards scholarly attempts to standardize and rationalize colour through colour theory in order to embrace the unknowability of colour and enter a place of quiet contemplation. This is articulated in a discreet, almost shy colour palette and the discernible care enacted on the painting’s surface. Colour is foregrounded through spatial ambiguity, while gestural authorship is minimized through the gentle, abstemious application of paint.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an essay written by Shannon Garden-Smith
