Tinney Contemporary is proud to present The Hive Mind Dreams of Sleeping, a solo exhibition featuring works by Wendy Walker Silverman.

Silverman creates subtle-yet-sublime abstract paintings conjured from recollected impressions of light on surfaces. Color and form emerge as the connective tissue throughout the body of work, accumulating significance by repetition. The interplay between hard and soft edges, hues of varying intensities, and overlapping color fields create a shifting rhythm across the surface of each canvas.

The exhibition’s title, The Hive Mind Dreams of Sleeping, articulates a postmodern ambivalence: the tenuous boundary between a peaceful rest and a willful ignorance, a longing for an ever-elusive tranquility amidst hyperconnectivity and information overload.

Each marking, gesture, and tone inscribes specific meanings for the artist–be it place, memory, song, myth, sensation. Yet, by abstraction, these distilled memories develop a poetic ambiguity, creating an intermediary space between artist and viewer.
Silverman invites a co-creation of significance as form and color elicit response in the viewers, celebrating the projection of other narratives into this space.
