Installation view of “Glimmers Through Dark Matter: Greg Breda and Myra Greene”

 
On View presents images from noteworthy exhibitions
 

PATRON GALLERY RECENTLY ORGANIZED a two-artist show in New York City. Featuring Greg Breda and Myra Greene, “Glimmers Through Dark Matter” was the first in a series of programs called PATRON | Projects—short-run exhibitions, performances, and events planned in various locations beyond the gallery’s base in Chicago. Los Angeles-based Breda paints introspective portraits on vellum. The surface imbues his colors with depth and beauty. Breda’s subjects are contemplative. Their surroundings—a patterned floor, graphic tee, bevy of elegant flowers—suggest untold narratives. Greene lives and works in Atlanta. Her photography-based practice explores race and representation. Her latest body of work experiments with ambrotype, an early kind of photograph in which a glass plate negative is placed against a dark background. For her Undertone series Greene employed the method using stained glass. CT

 

Featuring Greg Breda and Myra Greene, “Glimmers Through Dark Matter” was on view at Patron New York, 213 Bowery, New York, N.Y., March 7-10, 2019
