Danielle Mysliwiec
December 5 - 28

In this new body of work, Danielle Mysliwiec presents four suites of paintings, each suite a set of variations on a theme. In Nocturne and Crocus, Mysliwiec continues her creation of oil paintings that masquerade as woven abstractions. Through the use of specialized tools that extrude oil paint in threadlike marks, Mysliwiec works though a systematic process that gradually builds three-dimensional illusions of warp and weft. In other works, such as North and South, raw and gilded linen are woven together to form highly textured and reflective geometric compositions that further probe the material possibilities for painting. Equinox fixes the viewer in front of fluctuating chevron fields, created by the play of gilded surfaces, subtle color gradients, and a meticulously randomized approach to pattern.

Danielle Mysliwiec was born in Worcester, Massachusetts. She holds a BA from Wesleyan University and an MFA from Hunter College. Mysliwiec has exhibited her work in numerous galleries including Heiner Contemporary, (Washington, DC), Camel Art Space, (Brooklyn, NY), Baer Ridgway Exhibitions, (San Francisco, CA), Project 4, (Washington, DC), Kent State University (Kent, OH) and has a forthcoming solo exhibition at Novella Gallery in New York City opening in January 2015.
