Published: Jan 19, 2009
SAVANNAH, Ga. -- South African artist Deborah Poynton's psychologically powerful paintings are on view now for her first North American solo exhibition "Everything Matters" at Pei Ling Chan Gallery, 322 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. The exhibition runs through Feb. 13.
An gallery talk will take place Feb. 13 at 5 p.m., just before the artist reception scheduled for 6-8 p.m., as part of the Feb. 13 SCAD Gallery Hop. The exhibition, gallery talk and reception are free and open to the public. Pei Ling Chan Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.- 5:30 p.m.
Poynton's paintings command the exhibition space in a unique capacity with their large presence and the sensitivity with which she paints the figures. "Everything Matters" ties a selection of Poynton's recent paintings together to exercise physical and relational connections within her complex tableaux.
