NEW YORK, NY.- Peter Blum Gallery announced the representation of American artist Rebecca Ward (b. 1984). Her first solo exhibition at Peter Blum Gallery entitled, infinite plane, will open on March 19, 2022.

Rebecca Ward explores the territory between painting and object through her banded, sewn, and deconstructed canvases that emphasize materiality and process. She painstakingly removes sections of either horizontal or vertical threads of fabric to expose underlying stretcher bars while converging planes of subtly painted canvas at machine-sewn seams. The works highlight the multidimensional physical structure of painting and its ability to both reveal and obscure.

"The thing that first struck me when I approached painting is that you are dealing with a very complex support system that has three dimensions. From the wall to the surface to the frame, different layers interact with each other. This is why I chose to reveal the support structure. The frame can dictate the work in a way that also acts in harmony with the painted surface. Transparency sensationalizes all this dimensionality and makes you question what you’re really looking at." — Rebecca Ward

"Rebecca Ward's work is wily and elusive; it doesn't sit still. As soon as you move, it moves, shifting what was once a static painting into an object with weight, shadow, and dimension." — Jonathan Rider, "Seduction," Rebecca Ward, The FLAG Art Foundation, 2021
