In 2009, Clarence Morgan and Howard Oransky, two venerable Twin Cities artists whose focus is strong, graphic patterning, shared a lively exhibition. They’re doing it again, and this time the show includes a range of work exploring ideas about rhythm, structure, imagery, and experience. Oransky’s oils feature lines in space that curl with the delicacy of fine hair. Morgan’s collages on paper — enlivened with acrylic, ink, and colored pencil — layer form and color in dense compositions. Both artists’ collections have a kinetic quality that lifts form and materiality right off the page.
