RR&P: Repetition Rhythm and Pattern
Exhibition Run: January 4 - 25, 2014
Opening Reception: 7-10PM, January 4, 2014
Curated by Lindsey Landfried
Space 4 Art San Diego is pleased to present RR&P curated by Lindsey Landfried. This exciting group exhibition revisits the reductive aspects of modernist abstraction and explores its impact on in a contemporary context. The ten participating artists critically digest the visual tools repetition, rhythm, and pattern.
Their inquiries info the lineage and fundamentals of abstraction are often infused with personal and subjective anecdotes. Through rigorous formal investigation, these artists iterate broadly; from wrought family history to slap dash humor. The interjection of this material often repudiates the precedent tones of modernist minimalism. The exhibiting artists approach this work through a variety of media ranging from installation and paintings to glass and ceramic. The visual simplicity echoes against a sincere and pointed investigation of materials, aesthetics, history, and context.
