Steven Baris: Toppling

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Toppling, an exhibition of six new paintings by artist Steven Baris.  Anchored by a new series Toppling created during the pandemic, the works explore discontinuity and disequilibrium of the upheaval and disruption of 2020 and beyond.

“A common thread connecting the separate but related groups of paintings is an obsession with the spatial and temporal disjunctions that we are experiencing in our rapidly changing world,” states Baris. “To that end, I deploy what I describe as diagrammatic metaphors that visualize ongoing processes of movement and transformation.”
