Cape Mulch

Opening Reception
Friday, July 27

For its second exhibition Culture Room is pleased to announce “Cape Mulch”, a group of paintings on paper by Clayton Schiff. The works are born of the impulse to doodle, relying on the immediacy of line and it's abillity to conjure notational filler. Imagery develops as quickly as it dismantles itself, introducing narrative but committing to little more than a suggestion. The forms that populate these paintings can be organic or architectural, they can stay grounded in the space or move beyond the internal logic of the picture. Puddles, cliffs, mounds and dubious life forms inhabit these worlds as well as wander outside their edges, asserting a loose tether to the limitations of a stage.
