Zachary Royer Scholz: Tape, Paint, Repaint

Baer Ridgeway Gallery has a special hallway exhibition space that sets the tone as you enter the building. Right now you can see Zachary Royer Scholz: Tape, Paint, Repaint showing from July 24 - October 16, 2010. It reminds me that tape should not be taboo in creating a graphic statement. Not all art has to come in a frame.

The artist statement includes: The piece uses the space’s existing architecture and painting’s most banal requirements as its starting point. Each component, including the materials and actions required to paint and erase the work, stands as an integral and equal aspect of the whole. By democratizing its constituent parts, the work exists as an interdependent multiplicity rather than a singular “piece.”
