Meredith Sellers’ painting “Crash (Yellow)” (2022) has been featured in the March guest curation for David Zwirner’s Platform by Graham Wilson from Swivel Gallery.

In this painting, the artist uses a car crash image as a metaphor for contemporary American society’s latent violence. The closely-cropped image, revealed from within a field of vivid color, explores how subtexts like toxic rage, careless abandon, and other societal ills have occupied painting over its long history.
