Pousette-Dart’s body of work extends the traditional format of painting through a process which often begins with drawing as entry into space itself. Interested in the relationship between light and form, her shaped configurations of color and biomorphic contour delve into the experience of gravity and motion. Evoking the curvature of earth’s horizon or the shape of a human eye, each canvas appears as though oscillating in motion, creating a spatial continuum beyond the work.
