From the exhibition essay by Paul D’Agostino:
Artists thrive on taking cues from creative precedents and taking them in novel, unexpected, perhaps critically reflective, even surprising directions. These cues sometimes come from the greater or lesser titans of art history. Other times, artists’ cues pertain more specifically to formal or material concerns. The artists in Hybrid Histories take cues from and redirect all such precedents in their individual explorations of the frequently fungible territories of sculptures and paintings, and in their variable predilections to allow color itself to catalyze the works. Donald Martiny, Elisa D’Arrigo, and Barry Katz see tradition as something to be revisited and reprised, then refashioned, sundered, and hybridized.
