Few have such a compelling hold on the use of color as Sandford Wurmfeld. A life-long student of the perceptual nuances of pigment, Wurmfeld’s current show highlights his ability to subtly infuse canvasses with a spectrum of hues. Initially coming across as monochromes, the work in Light and Dark reveals itself to be just the opposite.
The artist has created complicated polychromes of gently nuanced gradients of pigment. They are structured around a tightly ordered iteration of his signature grid compositions and initially appear to be either black or white. Upon closer inspection, the plethora of subdued hues begin to delight the eye and open the works up as veiled worlds of chromatic encounters.
