Voltz Clarke is pleased to debut a two-person exhibition of recent works by Sara Genn (Canadian) and Joshua Avery Webster (American). Both painters of abstract and geometric compositions, Genn and Webster are distinguished in their ability to convey textural and tonal balance through their respective works. On view at 141 East 62nd Street in New York, the exhibition will focus on a dialogue between the two artists with a selection of works that demonstrate Genn’s and Webster’s range and technical skill with the painted brush.

Sara Genn was born in Vancouver in 1972. After studying at York House School in Vancouver, Genn completed her BFA at Queen's University at Kingston, Ontario. She was awarded the British Columbia Provincial Scholarship in Visual Art and achieved the highest standing at the North American Advanced Placement Art Program. In 2003, after year-long sojourns in Paris and Seville, Genn relocated to New York.

As the son of a contemporary abstract painter from New York’s Hudson Valley, Webster has been involved with arts throughout his life. Drawing on his professional background and inspired by the work of the mid-century color field artists, Webster’s work explores the interplay of form, color, and texture on the canvas. He aims to create novel visual experiences that evoke excitement and emotion for their viewers without straying from the language of abstraction. He currently lives and works in Jersey City.
