Abstract Paintings by Barbara Grad 

The exhibition Video Villa: New Paintings by Barbara Grad features more than a dozen abstract paintings by Boston-based painter Barbara Grad.The exhibition’s paintings, some joining together two canvases, were created between 2008 and 2010 and take inspiration from the dynamic intersection of worlds seemingly at odds; maps (found in a cache stored by her son) offer secret entry into gaming worlds, and the aerial topography of the boundaries between the built and the natural world. Translucent layers of brilliantly hued and hard-edged maplike shapes stand as metaphors for the duality of time and place. Grad transforms notions of pictorial space into impressions of instability and inherently unpredictable experiences. While abstract, viewers may see city grids, land masses, tributaries, graffiti, and other recognizable forms in Grad’s painterly universe.
Fridays, 12-8 p.m.; Saturdays, 12-6 p.m. Starts: Feb. 4. Continues through May 28, 2011
