The term ‘passage,’ utilized as a noun or a verb, contains multitudes, and this exhibition is meant to be in conversation with all of those therein. A throughway, a brief precipice from one place to another, one’s permission to enter, one’s permission to exit, one’s choice or right to proceed or move forward -- they’re all encompassed by the title of the exhibition. Join Plough in this examination of the psychology of landscapes and passageways; these paintings contain multitudes.
Passages is an exhibition of oil and acrylic paintings which are a transition between Plough’s large, simple color field paintings and smaller, more figurative landscapes. Many of the pieces depict a way of exit or entrance, a road, or pathway. Several works refer directly to traveling, either physically or psychologically, while others involve the motion or energy involved in transit.
