Asterfields is proud to announce the opening of UNDERNEATH, a solo exhibition with artist Shawn Gilheeney (b. Providence, RI 1980). On view from July 21th through August 18th, 2023, the show will feature Gilheeney’s enamel paintings, showcasing his mastery of color theory and faux painting techniques developed through his experience as a sign painter and printmaker. He has built a unique language through process and technique. Gilheeney has a BFA in Printmaking from Rhode Island College and He has paintings in Private, Corporate and Museum collections. Most days he can be found at the sign shop with a paint brush in his hand.

UNDERNEATH - Using the brilliance of enamels, Gilheeney’s technique electrifies the crisp brights while giving his dark tones murky depth. The color fields wrap the surface taking us underneath. The worn surfaces juxtaposed against the sharp neon lines, seesaw across an urban landscape caught between hopeful blue skies, worn edges and urban decay.

Opening Reception: July 27, 2023, 6:00 - 8:00 PM
