Games and Icons

Susan Barnett

Games and Icons will be Dallas artist Susan Barnett’s second solo exhibition at Conduit Gallery. The large scale paintings, works on paper and single-channel video explore the recently popular number and logic puzzle, Sudoku. Barnett has created several series of paintings that illustrate single Sudoku games in various stages of completion using not numbers but colored squares. The effect is one of order and logic as the viewer moves from art work to art work, divining an absolute; as with the game of Sudoku, there can only be one right answer.
