Los Angeles\, CA (March 14\, 2012)—CB1 Gallery is pleased to present our first solo exhibition of the work of Timothy Nolan\, Restack. For nearly two decades Nolan has explored il lusions of three-dimensional space through the use of pattern\, line and sh ape in two dimensional wall work and floor installations. The exhibition in cludes the artist’s first freestanding\, large scale sculpture. The exhibit ion will be on view in our East Gallery from April 1–29\, 2012\, with a rec eption for the artist on Sunday\, April 1st\, 5 – 7 p.m. An artist talk is scheduled for April 29 at 3 p.m.

The centerpiece of Timothy Nola n’s exhibition\, a latticed and stacked trapezoidal shaped sculptu re shifts\, melds and reconfigures as the viewer moves around the work and throughout the gallery\, sometimes taking form as the elements of the piece interact with one another\, and sometimes confounding viewers’ experience of spatial dynamics within the work and the larger gallery space. The work addresses aspects of the entire gallery space\, an historic bank building i n downtown Los Angeles. It will take to the next level Nolan’s investigatio n of geometry\, line and pattern\, and his interest in blurring the line be tween permanence and impermanence\, solid form and illusion. Also on view w ill be a series of works on glass panels\, and another on cut paper that pu sh the boundaries of the two dimensional field.

Nolan e xplores and interprets fundamental patterns\, geometry\, and systems-of-ord er which occur naturally and unnaturally\, on purpose and by chance. While nearly everything we experience today is digitized\, each convergence of sh apes echoes back thousands of years through multiple iterations\, revealing the building blocks of life and civilization. While Minimalism and Cubism have influenced Nolan’s work\, he also draws inspiration from lesser-known movements such as Pattern and Decoration and Op Art\, addressing shifting p erception of two and three dimensions\; illusionist (plastic) space vs. rea l dimensionality.
