This small exhibition highlights passages of the late Dan Tranberg's art over the past several years. Dan used geometry as a net for casting out in search of new materials. Inspired by the shapes and arrangements in Danish dinnerware patterns, kilim rugs, and Quaker quilts, Dan used these structures to play with numerous materials: gouache and glitter, acrylic and Roll-A-Tex, graphite, ink, and gel pens. In 2016 Dan wrote, "For me, the thing that seemed to ignite my imagination at an early age was abstract painting. With my work, I seek to carry forward the idea of using painting as a space in which to envision that which is not otherwise visible."
