A new exhibition curated by William Staples brings together visual art works in two and three dimensions to reflect on how those two formal approaches engage the viewer. The properties that define each medium and the demands they make are distinct, whether flat or in the round. In the case of painting or other two-dimensional work, the beholder stands in front of the surface, encountering the composition vis à vis their position before a solid vertical plane. By contrast, three-dimensional art works occupy the same space as the viewer, who must circle the object to consider its various angles and surfaces. Ultimately, both formats are unified by their visual generosity toward a thoughtful viewer.
