Artist Peter Gronquist's use of uncommon materials and techniques gives his delicate gradient art a unique twist.

His exhibition at the Joseph Gross Gallery in New York is titled 'Refuge' and features 13 different pieces of art. Some of his canvases and frames stray from the rectangular or square norm -- instead, they feature jagged sides and one appears to curl out and detach itself from the wall. Another unique component of the art on display is the circular canvases, presented in the form of mirrors that contain silk flowers, giving the appearance of multiple dimensions.

By straying slightly from common painting techniques, Peter Gronquist's gradient art comes together to form a feminine and transcendental exhibition.
