The Same Thing in Different Colors
February First Friday with New Boon(e) & Alexis Thompson

"In order to understand and study celestial objects, the fantastic complexities of light across the spectrum are translated for our eyes in RGB (red, green, blue) by telescopes such as Hubble. This process allows us to visualize features of an object that would be ordinarily invisible to the human eye. Photographs of the same object are taken through multiple filters representing specific information about the object. Color, in this case, is a tool to highlight an objects subtle structural detail. "

The Same Thing in Different Colors, is an exhibition of recent work by Alexis Thompson that focuses on the ‘stuff of things’. In what can best be summarized as a rigorously inventive drawing practice, Alexis’s paintings and sculptures are authentically immersive and unusually familiar. It is our seemingly known relationship to the forms and materials in the work that becomes increasingly subtly nuanced and complicated from stuff to stuff, stuff in stuff. "

New Boone is pleased to present The Same Thing in Different Colors, a solo exhibition of new work by Alexis Thompson. The exhibit will be on view February 6th through February 8th with an opening reception on Friday February 6th from 6-10pm.
