It is an interesting time for "painting". Everything is available and anything goes. Gone are the days of strict adherence to modernist notions and rigid categorization. Painters can freely mine and augment the visual languages of the past, endlessly colliding them with new methods and materials to explore the boundaries of the medium. The artists included in Failing Flat expand and explode painting into three dimensions while staying firmly grounded to a traditional support. By depicting graphic images with sculptural form, these artists create works that exist in a dual state ,vacillating between objecthood and the pictorial. Though the works are in dialogue with tropes of the past, these works fail to conform to their flat ancestry. They are a testament to painting's ability to restore, reframe and reinvent itself.
