The exhibition and catalog, Paint on Metal: Modern and Contemporary Explorations and Discoveries, brings together modern and contemporary artists working with traditional painting and sculptural techniques, each with a common bond—the use of metal as the canvas or the form upon which color is applied in a symbiotic melding of surface and substrate. Artists using such metals as aluminum, copper, brass, and tin do so for a variety of reasons—the qualities of light inherent in the material; the stable, smooth surface upon which to apply paint; and the ability of the material to be manipulated into a number of forms. The end result of the embellished metal surface is visually compelling and conceptually varied.
