In Simultaneity, peculiar and often apprehensive combinations of form and color are seen from multiple perspectives — forms that are at once synthetic and organic, solid and ephemeral, static and kinetic; forms that function as windows; objects that vacillate between grand and the miniscule; paint that describes pictorial space while asserting itself in literal space;

The participating artists approach the pictorial notion of simultaneous experience by way of shared and individual roads. Each painter owes a certain debt to cubism and builds on that institution.
- Drawing on Pop and Modernist traditions, Steve McCall (’00) manipulates scale with forms that are both figurative and landscape-based.
- Through the use of intuitive and intellectual processes, Nick Lamia (’00) constructs what appear to be naturally occurring machines.
- Meghan Brady (’02) employs flat, volumetric forms to create images that are landscapes and pure abstraction.
- Gabrielle Phipps (’00) constructs solid structures that appear to verge on collapse, while referencing pink flesh, metal shards, and glowing television screens.
- Using irregularly sized multi-panel arrangements as ground, Dannielle Tegeder makes illusionistic paintings that emphasize artifice.
“Simultaneity explores interpretations of a simultaneous viewing experience that is rich in visual associations and phenomena — a pool of conflicting sources and non-verbal viewpoints that only make sense together through painterly language,” said Lynne Cooney, Exhibitions Director at the School of Visual Arts.
