January 8 - March 25, 2018
Opening Reception, Thursday January 11, 6PM-8PM
Danielle Eubank’s work occupies the liminal space between abstraction and representation, actively seeking out the tipping point between the conceptual and visible in her subject of choice: water. She considers the forms created by ripples in a pond or the lines of receding waves a foundation for deconstruction. From this point of departure, she creates patterns within patterns, representing vertical stacks of rhythms in the physical subject matter. Eubank work also highlights questions of proximity that brings the subject right up to the surface of the canvas, almost into the viewer’s space. By layering the paint with broad brushstrokes, she invites the viewer to appreciate the physical, painterly qualities that form the depth of that experience.
Danielle Eubank is an expedition artist in pursuit of painting all of the major bodies of water in the world. She is beginning by painting all of Earth’s oceans. She is currently painting the second to last ocean on her list, the Arctic Ocean. So far she has painted all of the other oceans but one, as well as water in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North America, and Asia. Eubank has painted around 200 bodies, in and around 21 countries.
