Opening Reception: INK

Susan Calloway Fine Arts
1643 Wisconsin Ave.  NW
Washington DC
Friday 6pm-8pm

  • While DC artists Christian Platt and Brian Petro each work in a variety of media, they share an affinity for the medium of ink on paper. Petro’s large, expressive brush strokes serve as exclamation points to Platt’s meticulously developed relief prints. Platt’s method of drilling through his plate to create the light space he will later print is, in effect, drilling the “light” into his work. Petro’s brush strokes and shapes reflect both an influence and meaning as he lays down the emotional “paths” of paint.
