Project/Title: Disciplined Spontaneity
A group show featuring artists who respond to the elemental allure of randomness and change through collaboration, presentation, materials, and intention. They have developed original methodologies to shape and control open-ended processes. All of the artists in this exhibition are conceptually adventurous, yet have insisted on the physicality of the art object.

Jack Sal uses line, material and marks to create a reactive Art. Using formatted and standard sizes, he takes as his subject, in both, his objects and drawings, the stable and unstable. As in life itself, tension reveals energy and dynamics where prediction is modified by experience.
