EXHIBITION DETAILS:

Scott White Contemporary Art presents the exhibition Containment/Release by San Diego based artist Robert Treat. This is Treat’s first solo exhibition at Scott White Contemporary Art. His new works are the product of a continued interest in the surface and process of encaustic wax painting. Treat explores the idea of linear containment in both the painting's composition, as well as the painting as a contained object itself. Building upon his roots in abstraction, Treat has combined his intuition and logic to create a visceral, yet thoughtfully planned experience through this new body of work.

Containment/Release will feature approximately 10 medium to large-scale encaustic paintings on canvas as well as 4 small works on paper.

ARTIST INFORMATION:

Robert Treat earned a B.F.A. at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, later pursuing gradate studies at University of Cincinnati in Cincinnati, Ohio and the Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio.
