Contemporary painters Shawn McNulty and James Wrayge present new, large-scale pieces that explore geometric and organic structures in their upcoming show “INTERPOSE” at Rosalux Gallery.  Their abstract painting process involves repeating components with a painterly, systemic approach that allows for discovery and deviation.  A strong sense of process, discovery and physicality is apparent in the finished work.  McNulty works his canvas on the floor with acrylic and pumice with large joint knives and also uses his feet with a “shoe palette knife” he invented, while Wrayge applies many thin layers of oil on canvas until the composition is complete.  Both longtime Rosalux members (McNulty is a founding member) have a keen sense of color, and will be incorporating more grays in this exhibition, which will be a cohesive component.
