amon carter 20190807_utterback_interaction_0003_1Featured Artist: Camille Utterback
Exhibition Dates: Sept. 14 – Dec. 8, 2019
Hours: Sun. 12-5pm; Tues. through Saturday 10am-5pm; Late Nights Thursday, open ’til 8pm

In Utterback’s Untitled 5 (2004), visitors’ movements in the gallery space are run through computer software written by the artist that translates them into an animated digital painting that constantly evolves. Although thoroughly contemporary, Untitled 5 builds on a rich lineage of artwork that records or transforms human movement, including the abstract expressionists Utterback considers her creative forbears. Set in Motion includes a selection of work by women who experimented to pursue this difficult goal, from well-known masters like Georgia O’Keeffe and Helen Frankenthaler to underappreciated artists like Barbara Morgan and Anne Ryan.

Jones’s tactile, depth-driven, nonrepresentational paintings that reveal and revel in the artist’s process and his relationship with the materials. “I’m making things that speak to me and that reflect on my aesthetic and my soul,” remarks Jones, who juxtaposes the formal with the organic and the personal with the universal to create quiet, contemplative microenvironments. To achieve this, he reduces subject matter to its formal elements, highlighting the vastness of simplicity.
