Page Bond Gallery is pleased to present the group catalog ECHO featuring artists: Lloyd Martin, Frank Phillips, Cameron Wilson Ritcher, and Alain Vaes.

As we transitioned to a virtual platform over the past several months, we were able to begin actively engaging online with new artists in and beyond Virginia. ECHO features work from artists new to the gallery in Martin, Phillips, Ritcher, and Vaes.

Throughout their artist statements, each painter describes the power that lies in editing compositions. Martin in his rhythmic arrangement of vibrant color, Phillips in his construction of “blueprint” compositions, Ritcher in his assemblage of found and recycled materials, and Vaes in his meditative creation of pattern paintings.

A focus on color, line, and repetitive form allows the paintings to evoke movement without imposing a concrete narrative.

While the twenty-four artworks range in subject matter and format, they share a framework that references structural organization, rhythm, and architecture. The collection of paintings, while often abstract, remains grounded in the real world and this structural framework allows the works to carry a sense of gravity and cohesion.
