In his first solo exhibition in Boston, Cullen Washington Jr. presents large-scale paintings that employ strategies of collage and assemblage, incorporating found objects, discarded materials, and scraps from the studio floor. Washington’s unprimed and unstretched canvases, which he attaches directly to the wall and in some cases the floor, structure the formal language of abstraction through references to grids, patterns and internal rhythms. Opening Reception: Thursday, January 23, 6-8 pm
