From Morning Til Night, We Should Never Rely on a Single Thing: Curated by Tomory Dodge

14 - 28 April 2021

Philip Martin Gallery is proud to present, “From Morning Til Night, We Should Never Rely on a Single Thing," a group exhibition curated by Los Angeles-based painter, Tomory Dodge. The title of the exhibition, a quotation attributed to 9th century Zen teacher Huang Po, advocates an approach to the everyday that does not rely on preconceived notions and concepts for understanding, but rather seeks to meet each occurrence on its own terms — to simply follow circumstances.


"Whether working from observation or imagination, whether their work is based in representation or abstraction, the painters included in this exhibition approach painting as grounds for constant reinvention and new ways of perception. While some of these artists utilize practices that may appear more rigidly formal than others, and while certain weight is placed on subject matter in some cases, the main object of their pursuit is none other than the direct experience of the act of painting itself for both themselves as the artist as well as for the viewer." - Tomory Dodge
