The exhibition includes a variety of works, some large and some small, that explore ideas of pictorial structure, rhythm, imagery, and experience. Clarence Morgan and Howard Oransky have been engaged in an extended dialogue about painting and visual art for a number of years and are colleagues in the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota. This is their second 2-person exhibition at Form + Content Gallery, following Shared Distance in 2009.
