Anne Russinof posts an image blog of the exhibition Meta Vista, curated by Matthew Neil Gehring. The exhibition features works by Rachel Beach, Paul Behnke, Vincent Como, Matthew Neil Gehring, Beth Gilfilen, Jason Karolak, Joan Mellon, Rebecca Murtaugh, and Kirk Stoller. An online version of the show is concurrently posted at Curating Contemporary.
In the curatorial statement Gehring writes: "Each of the artists in this exhibition generate work from a distinct point of view, but each point of view is one that is illuminated and connected by this show’s title, Meta Vista. Meta: beyond, transcendent, self referential and critical, in the abstract. Vista: an extensive mental view, a distant expanse. These artists make the invisible visible, make the real unreal, and vice versa. Each is engaged in a practice of advanced visual art that overtly or subtly engages an existential discourse; form and formlessness, presence and absence while remembering that a vision is both an analytical tool and an intuitive experience, as well as both difficult to attain and a pleasure to apprehend."
Kris Chatterson photo blogs installation photos from the exhibition Angular Seduction curated by Vincent Como at Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Brooklyn through February 17, 2013.
The show features work by Maya Hayuk, Jason Karolak, Anna Kunz, Karl LaRocca, Melissa Oresky, and Kirk Stoller, artists who "Painters who are each navigating space through color, shape and line, at times even breaking free of the planar reality of pictorial space to enter the Z-axis, or rather, the world of three dimensions with the rest of us. The differences in these collected works come out of the handling of materials, whether clean and exacting with pure color, a sharp demarcation of elements, or transparent and loose with areas of paint bleeding over/into others. While owing a debt to Color Theory as well as the Hard Edge painters and Minimal artists each of the works on display in Angular Seduction simultaneously bastardize and push the boundaries of those very traditions in an attempt to bring the work to another level of existence and thus lure the unsuspecting viewer closer through their wanton displays of geometric persuasion."
