Opening Reception: October 28 / 4-6 pm
Join us in welcoming back to the gallery Cambridge, MA artists Peter Arvidson. Peter has been showing his work at Inclusions since our very first exhibition in late 2007. Since then, we’ve had the great pleasure of placing many his distinctive oil paintings, in a number of west coast dwellings, and beyond.
Reveries – “a state of being pleasantly lost in one’s thoughts; a daydream, a trance, musings…” and also the title of Peter Arvidson’s exhibit of new paintings at Inclusions Gallery. Arvidson’s works have always displayed a developed sense of color as well as a sophistication with color harmonies. His recent pieces in this exhibition tend toward his “colorfield” series of purely abstract works on canvas and wood panels. These pieces range in size from 6″ x 6″ up to 40″ x 40″ and are designed in loose grids and concentric squares that are often monochromatic with related colors gently introduced and juxtaposed. Some of these paintings evoke horizons and landscapes, while others tend toward musical and life rhythms. For the artist, creating these works is a meditative process with concentration on the the nuances of color harmony and repetitive mark-making. He hopes the viewers of these paintings can also take the time to experience a sense of solace and peace.
Peter Arvidson was born in New York and currently lives in Cambridge, MA. He holds an MFA in Painting from the University at Buffalo. His works are in private collections around the world. He will have his first international solo exhibit in Tokyo in 2018.
