ArtSpace at Metropolitan Press:

Artist Reception This Week! Join us on Saturday, February 11, 4:30-7:30pm

Now showing at ArtSpace at Metropolitan Press, 90 Degrees by Andrew Kochie.

Meet the artist at the upcoming reception on Saturday, February 11, 2017 from 4:30pm to 7:30pm.

The paintings…are a synthetic blend between abstract and Trompe-l’œil illusion. Ranging between abstract minimalism to geometric abstraction, each piece reflects a balance of classical geometry creating fiery optical effects on handmade panels.

Mokha Laget’s Color into Space opens July 29 at the Geometric MADI

MADI_logo_MC

MOKHA LAGET’S COLOR INTO SPACE
OPENS THIS FRIDAY, JULY 29
Opening reception and exhibition of Laget’s uniquely shaped paintings

This new, solo exhibit will be composed of over 20 breathtaking works including Laget’s signature shaped paintings, using unconventional clay pigments, and colorful lithographs.

Laget’s geometric abstractions evoke vast landscapes, urban environments and ambiguous interiors, the categorization of which lies beyond conventional interpretation. They engage the viewer to actively explore relations between the shaped canvas, its embedded planes and surrounding architecture. At once sensual in surface color and intellectually playful, her paintings invite the viewer to accept paradox and impossibility as an aesthetic premise.

Opening: Inventing Through Glass, Wood, and Cardboard: Kimura and Bensasson

Opening April 29 at the Geometric MADI

Work by artists Roger Bensasson and Yumiko Kimura!Bensasson was born in Paris in 1931 and now lives in Bagnolet, France. He has exhibited in the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles since 1986 and has solo exhibitions in Holland, France, and Hungary. His work is included in the permanent collections of museums in Japan, Hungary, France and the U.S.

“I abandoned canvas for museumboard. The choice of this support enriches possibilities through the interplay of cutting, folding and layering.” “I research the economy of means. One sign, painted with the game, crease, empty, let me see the door of the infinite.” –Roger Bensasson

Yumiko Kimura is a Japanese artist based in Paris. She studied sculpture at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin, Italy and has exhibited in France and Japan, as well as Brussels, Moscow, Budapest, Buenos Aires, Bratislava, and Italy.

Yumiko Kimura works multi-layered glass around an axis referencing the world of geometric abstraction with overtones of constructivism or dynamism.

QUILTS: THE NEW GEOMETRY, an exhibition curated by textile artist Sue Benner will feature quilt artists whose work captures the essence of the MADI aesthetic; namely, non-objective geometric shapes with strong color division.
The opening reception will be Friday, April 4, 5:30-7:30pm.
Please RSVP at 214-855-7802 or here!


QUILTS: THE NEW GEOMETRY
APRIL 4 THROUGH JULY 6, 2014

CURATOR”S STATEMENT: SUE BENNER

Long before Mondrian’s Composition with Grid, quilters were making glorious geometric abstractions by sewing together pieces of cloth. It’s hard to imagine that pioneers in Abstract Art could have failed to notice how analogous was the quilt form; for already by the late 1800’s, an unknown quilter from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, had hand-stitched a violet square inside a blue square inside a brown square. The resulting Center Square Amish quilt is as elegant as an Albers and as expressive as a Klee. Amish quilts can be seen as the prophets of the Modernist use of color and form as subject.

For this exhibition at the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art, I am addressing the nonobjective geometric abstraction inherent to quilts and the contemporary practice of this art form. I sought out works from American artists working in a style that most directly reflects the MADI aesthetic: geometric quilts with bold shapes and striking colors.

DIGITAL_GEOMETRICS: CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS USING COMPUTERS
OPENING JANUARY 10, 2014
pabbotpyramidrange

Paul Abbott | Pyramid Range #13_digital print

Curated by Alan Engisch, the show is about the relationship between artists and their tool which in this case is the computer. Each one of the artists uses this tool to arrive at very different conclusions. In spite of using technology, Digital Geometric art comes from exactly the same place as all other art in history has: the artist’s brain.

Featured artists are: Vlatko Ceric, Elle Schuster, James Allumbaugh, Paul Abbott, Tim Bolt, Lane Banks, Henry Biber, Rich Morgan, John Holt Smith, Sevan Melikyan, and Alan Engisch.

The opening reception will be Friday, January 10, 5:30-7:30pm.
Please RSVP at 214-855-7802 or here!

digital_geometrics: geometric artists using computers

January 2014 | digital_geometrics: geometric artists using computers opens January 10th at the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art with a reception from 5:30-7:30PM.  Curated by Alan Engisch, the show is about the relationship between artists and their tool which in this case is the computer. Each one of the artists uses this tool to arrive at very different conclusions. In spite of using technology, Digital Geometric art comes from exactly the same place as all other art in history has: the artist’s brain. The exhibit will run January 10 through March 30.


Juror’s Statement

The show is about the relationship between artists and their tools, which in this case are computers. Every one of these eleven artists uses this tool to arrive at very different conclusions.

The artists are: Vlatko Ceric, Elle Schuster, James Allumbaugh, Paul Abbott, Tim Bolt, Lane Banks, Henry Biber, Rich Morgan, John Holt Smith, and Sevan Melikyan, and me, Alan Engisch.

Vlatko Ceric has been making digital art by creating his own code since before computers could do graphics. His compositions in the show consist of small energetic squares seemingly wanting to jump right off the paper. Elle Schuster makes fractals that draw you into the vortex or look sharp and real enough to hurt you. James Allumbaugh, is showing MADI-reminiscent designs infused with the extra energy of today’s colors. Paul Abbott has created dreamlike fantastical geometric worlds for us to inhabit. Tim Bolt has two of his exciting rhythmic prints filled with hundreds of interlocking squares we can see things in. Lane Banks presents square upon square, silver, grey, and white compositions, elegant and fun at the same time. Henry Biber creates mysterious, nearly minimalist art exhibiting the strength and calmness of meditation. Rich Morgan has distilled his own cerebrally lyrical versions of Matisse and Degas works from within the digitized world of image manipulation. John Holt Smith takes slices of photos and extrudes and swirls them into striking and unique creations. Sevan Melikyan also uses famous masterpieces as inspiration and a computer program for simplifying them into their essential elements, putting it all together with oil paint brushed onto canvas. And I do my work within a spreadsheet program which I employ to make color field studies, compositions exploring light, and op-art designs.

In spite of using a technological tool to help us work, Digital Geometric art comes from exactly the same place as all the other art in history has: the artist’s brain.

Absolute and Infinite opens Oct. 18 at the MADI

Absolute and Infinite: New Interpretations of Islamic Geometric Designs curated by Ronald Watson

Opens Friday, October 18, 2013, 5:30pm – 7:30pm at The Museum of Geometric and MADI Art

absolute

This exhibition presents four artists working with the knowledge of Islamic patterns. Shafaq Ahmed paints and also works in three dimensions, digital media and mixed media. She is intrigued and inspired by mysticism: belief in the all-encompassing unity of the Creator. This belief influences both the conceptual and formal aspects of her work. Richard Henry is an artist and teacher with particular interest in the contemplative aspects of pattern. He has undertaken field studies in Egypt, Morocco, Syria, Turkey and Iran. Lateefa Spiker uses an expanding abstract language to communicate her explorations into transience and the infinite. Her reflective work is rooted in the spiritual traditions that underwrite traditional Islamic art and investigates the relationship between order and chaos, the contingent and the finite, and beauty and spirituality. Adam Williamson is a skilled stone and wood carver and practicing artist in many media. He has worked with artists in Greece, Spain, Morocco and Turkey in pursuit of increasing his understanding of Islamic art.
