About the Program

The large-scale (5'x6') painting collages in Stewart Paley's Uncut resist being read as abstracts or narrative, landscape or figure. Much of Paley's materials involve magazine photographs that are cut and manipulated to engulf the viewer into a world of chaotic thoughts and emotions. The densely coated surfaces seduce viewers into associations and narratives of their own making. His developed use of collage combined with paint covers new ground in the medium. This opening is part of SWARM, a city-wide celebration of artist run culture produced by PAARC.
