Xylor Jane: Counterclockwise

January 31 - April 28, 2019

Xylor Jane’s hypnotic paintings are rooted in mathematical concepts, numerology, and love. Devotional portraits of gridded Arabic numerals hold personal significance to the artist but are intended to spark a spell-like visceral experience for the viewer. The subjects include tetradic primes, Fibonacci sequences, and Magic Squares. The colors emerge from a seven-hue system that holds space for our curiosity, despair, and aspiration. Xylor Jane is a Greenfield, Massachusetts-based painter; she is represented by CANADA Gallery, New York.

Opening Reception: Wednesday, January 30, 5:00 – 7:30 pm
The artist will be present to lead a walk-through of her works on view.
