Todd Carpenter: Grey at Launch Gallery

September 11, 2012 by Megan Koester in Upcoming Events with 0 Comments

Grey, painter Todd Carpenter‘s latest solo show, runs September 8th through October 6th at the Launch LA Gallery; an opening reception for the exhibit will take place Saturday, September 15th from 6 to 10pm. Carpenter’s hyper-realistic paintings combine the artist’s deep knowledge of composition with his profound attention to detail. This collection of paintings uses a monochromatic palate to emphasize the power of light on perception.

According to Carpenter, “I am interested the role light plays in our recognition and aesthetic experience of the visual world…In order to emphasize the behavior of light, I create paintings that are simple and vague, ignoring color and most of the other details that make up the objects of the real world. This often results in a stylized depiction of the world, an unreal realism tuned to the imperfections of our perception.”
