Massey Lyuben Gallery presents "Interlude", a two-person exhibition of paintings by Amanda Scuglia and Wouter Nijland that explore the subtle nuances and relationship between light and chance.

Dutch artist, Wouter Nijland, creates three dimensional geometric oil paintings based on a set of chance rules and coincidence. Using a playful yet rigid system based off an x and y-axis planes, the artist uses dice, coins and coded marbles to codify and scale his compositions. The rules established for each painting also determine the gradient of the brushstroke and the border between shapes as well as the polygonal shapes themselves. The monochromatic pigment in this series of paintings are in fact a mixture of approximately twelve different shades of the primary colors: red, yellow, and blue. The heavily-mixed oil layers are thick, so one can follow the brushstrokes as they catch the light.
