"The seductive wall installation presents a tableau of canvases hung salon-style on striped wallpaper and slowly reveals itself to be one painted piece, destabilizing our perception of what is. The work thus challenges us to reexamine what is absolute, resolute, and neutral, and explore both the limits and potentiality of representation."

"Christina Quarles’ paintings are sensuous studies of human entanglement, which display a dazzling range of painting styles and an uncanny sense of inside-out space. Working with a bright spectrum of color that sometimes bleeds into the raw canvas, Quarles deploys a broad range of creative tools, including brushes, combs, rubber forks, X-ACTO knives, tape, and odd-ball utensils from 99 cent stores. The figures are painted from strong memories, rather than live models or photographs, which results in works with a haunted or active sense of timelessness."
