GANG CHANT, an exhibition of new paintings by Caleb Kortokrax, reinterprets spacial conventions through merging abstract and literal description in his motifs. Kortokrax reanimates the idiosyncratic language of illuminated manuscripts of the Romanesque era in England by expanding its pictorial depth and putting it in conversation with his own notion of abstraction, perception, and experiential color. The paintings incant song that harkens back to their own historical lineage; being objects of the present, they unconsciously speak in cryptic terms.
