Andre Petterson

A fascinating exhibit of Andre Petterson's new work opened at Foster/White Gallery this week.

Pettersen is driven by a vision of capturing fleeting moments in time on a canvas. He works simultaneously with photos, ink, pasted paper and paint, and by laboring intensely to obscure the lines between them he creates beautifully composed images which are also full of dynamic energy. The current show, called "STITCH. PRINT" combines photographs of dancers, found images of machines, pasted and finely rendered fabric, and subtly applied oil paints to create vibrant and mysterious works of art. A terrific show, worth a repeat visit.

"STITCH. PRINT" is open until June 26.
