Together, Let’s Change Our Names

     Originally installed in a large warehouse space in Nashville, the exhibition, Together Let’s Change Our Names, combines the works of three painters. All three artists flirt with the history of abstract painting but allow images and texts to reorient abstraction in the world. Painting is their way of quieting the viewer and engaging them physically, suspending an audience’s ability to name in hopes that they can leave the old names behind and find new ones. From Matt Christy’s banner paintings that hang in the middle of the room, to David Onri Anderson’s tenderly painted images of Candles and Lanterns, and Terry Thacker’s painting of notes on a play, they create a theatrical space that is both fragile and grand.
