BOSTON, MA — June 2014, Kingston Gallery is pleased to present Zero Point Field, new paintings by Lynda Schlosberg. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Schlosberg’s new works present themselves as self-generating macrocosms that embrace the simultaneous presence and absence of all possibilities. A reception for the public will be held in the gallery on Friday, July 11 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.

In these paintings Schlosberg meditates on the philosophy that nothing ever dies and that everything is connected through a never-ending unified field of energy. Our perception of reality emerges from this field and it is through our focused attention that we bring things into form. Since we get to freely choose what we want to see, there is infinite potential to create any reality we desire. One only needs to look.

In a quantum world the Zero Point Field is an omnipresent energetic substructure. It is the lowest possible energy state where all matter has been removed and no particle movement should remain. Yet no particle ever comes completely to rest, every particle is forever in motion due to an endless ground-state field of energy that continually interacts with all subatomic matter. What this means is that the Zero Point Field becomes a mirror image and record of everything that is and ever was. In a sense, it is the beginning and the end of everything in the universe, a basis of oneness.

Schlosberg’s process-oriented paintings are built one layer at a time, one color at a time. Organic backgrounds of pooled color are superimposed with solid, amorphous forms that are covered with thousands of small dots, dashes and circles. Her choice of colors and geometric patterns conform to self-determined rules that are driven by, and are in response to, the preceding layers. It is through the mass accumulation and combination of individual marks, and the process of weaving the layers together, that larger patterns emerge and dissipate. Each work is a sea of oscillating particles, a formless state of swirling energy, out of which its own unique sense of potential becomes manifest.

Schlosberg received her MFA from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, and her BFA from Ohio University College of Art. Her work has been published in Boston HomeStudio Visit and ArtBeat magazines and has been reviewed in the local press including The Boston Globe and Artscope. She received the 2013 Frances N. Roddy Award from the Concord Art Association, juried by Nick Capasso, Director of the Fitchburg Art Museum. Schlosberg’s paintings have been exhibited extensively throughout New England, including her recent solo exhibition “Field of Potentiality” at the Spencer Gallery at Endicott College. Schlosberg is represented by Susan Maasch Fine Art in Portland, ME, Kingston Gallery in Boston, and 13FOREST in Arlington, MA. She maintains a studio in Waltham, MA.
