About Ann Schaumburger: New Work 

A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to present New Work, an exhibition of paintings by artist Ann Schaumburger. In the exhibition, New Work, Schaumburger explores how color behaves and perpetually changes. Throughout this series, the artist uses a similar composition with varying color combinations. Each work is divided into blocks and every color receives a quantitative as well as chromatic valuation. Schaumburger’s interests in the perception and manipulation of colors dictate the construction of her paintings. With each tonal combination, she delineates movement— the surface reflects and absorbs, while edges disappear and merge into one another. The exhibition will be on view in

The exhibition, What the Lips Can’t Say, is an alternate means of breaking free of that prison through the coded language of color, pattern,

But after his father commits suicide, none of that matters. Colin is awash in guilt and casts about for someone to confide in: first his estranged grandfather, then a predatory science teacher.
