> DESCRIPTION

Let there be Geo takes a contemporary look at visual artists who use geometric form in their work.  While geometric form is not a new phenomenon, geo forms are appearing in some of the most aesthetically progressive work being made today.  The largest advocators of the use of geometric shapes began with Futurism and Cubism moving through the Op Art of the 60s and Neo-Geometric Conceptualism of the 80s.  Predominantly cool and impersonal in approach, though often active with content, contemporary 21st century responses to geometric form employ a variety of styles and media from painting to video to photography and sculpture.  The works in Let there be Geo explore today’s incarnation of geometric form.  Exhibiting artists include Maya Hayuk, Cody Hudson (image credit), Barbara Kasten, Sam Prekop, Geoffrey Todd Smith, and Steven Husby among others.
