Gordon Meinhard: The Lives of Tables

October 4, 2019 - February 9, 2020

A single, humble table is the central character in each of Gordon Meinhard’s new paintings. Meinhard’s background in architecture provides a keen focus on structure and space, while his playful use of form and color imbues what otherwise might be a simple still life with personality. Each table inhabits its setting like a character on stage—timid, brash, friendly, or imposing. The work isn’t about what’s not in the picture, it’s about the tables themselves as personalities.
