A two-person exhibition of artwork by Charles Cruz and Jay Herndon.

This two-person exhibition of work by Charles Cruz and Jay Herndon features diverse techniques of line-making coupled with gestural, and often unconfined, portions of hue and tone.

Artists Cruz and Herndon have developed unique styles of mark-making that reveal the way in which things are constructed, formally as well as anatomically. The artists’ respective techniques may appear casual or erratic at first glance, but upon closer examination, they demonstrate a confident sense of touch in response to the subject at hand, whether it is a person, place, or imaginary beast.

While Herndon's forms frequently suggest faceted or multi-planed objects, Cruz's work tends toward masses of overlapping curlicues and scalloped line forms. Kohler remarks, “I like that their work is simultaneously similar at times (a ghostly, delicate quality of line) as well as dissimilar (Herndon's occasional angular and graphic lines contrast with Cruz’s frequently more circular mark making).”
