Amiable Strangers explores the tension between knowing and not knowing, revealing and concealing, and masculine and feminine. Thompson and Weikert find themselves both within and without the tradition of American Abstract Expressionism; present are the bold splashes of color, broad confident brush strokes, subtle references to the figure on human-scale. However, each artist presents paintings that are more precariously balanced, literally and otherwise.

On view until August 6th, 2015.
