In the West Wing, CvsD presents new paintings by Chicago artist Matthew Metzger. From a series of works that stem from saxophonist Anthony Braxton’s landmark For Alto , each painting is a result of a meditation on the limits of one’s breath. At what point can a single inhalation, and its pensive outward blow, provide an alternative understanding of the distance between the end and a beginning, abstraction and representation, repetition and improvisation, form and invention?
