Both artists use a triangular motif in their recent work. Butler writes that Seto employs the form as "a kind of universality or perfection that metaphorically conveys beauty or truth," while "Dancy's trianglar forms are rooted in linear perspective, architecture, and the visual world."
Sharon Butler posts installation photos from the exhibition Emergence at Hôtel de Sauroy, Paris, on view through April 27, 2013. The show features works by Eve Aschheim, A.T Biltereyst, Katrin Bremermann, Sharon Butler, Claire Chesnier, Clem Crosby, Fieroza Doorsen, Amy Feldman, Yifat Gat, Kevin Monot, Erin Lawlor, Paul Pagk, Marine Pages, Andrew Seto, Radu Tuian, Richard Van der Aa, Don Voisine, and Michael Voss.
The exhibition, co-curated by Katrin Bremermann, Erin Lawlor, and Yifat Gat presents work that investigates "the way complex systems and patterns arise out of a multiplicity of relatively simple interactions."
Kessler writes: "The best contemporary art in NYC right now can be seen in Bushwick, all in one building - 56 Bogart... [including] breathtaking wrap-around colorfield paintings by Shingo Francis... [and] Theodore:Art has one of the best shows of small abstract paintings I’ve seen in a long time."
Paul Behnke blogs installation images of the painting exhibition Three: Damien Flood, Joy Garnett, Andrew Seto, "a studied exhibition of contemporary abstractions that blur the lines between figuration and non-objectivity," on view at Theodore:Art through June 19, 2011.
Behnke's photos highlight the installation which the gallery "hung in a way that emphasizes the similarities and differences of the painters. By mixing the work and presenting it in small clusters Theodore allows the viewer to compare and contrast the concerns and approaches of each painter more readily without confining the paintings according [to] maker."
