Opening on January 27, 2011 Rescue Party is painter Robin Williams’ first major exhibition.
“P·P·O·W is pleased to present Robin Williams’ first solo exhibition, Rescue Party. Through a series of eleven paintings, Williams reveals a surreal world inhabited by adolescents of ambiguous gender that are on the brink of discovery or revelation. Each painting has a distinct narrative but with no specific conclusion. There is a sense of pause in each work which heightens the sense of the impending chance for change. Williams is able to achieve this surreal timelessness through her painting techniques. While at once employing traditional painting methods, she is also experimental and intuitive. Her use of color, light, texture and composition are all used to explore painting as a medium and to link this to the conceptual content within each work.”
The work will remain on view though February 26, 2011.
