The AndrewShire Gallery is pleased to pr esent Take Five: Series 5\, the< em> \;fifth and final exhibition in the series. This show will feature new paintings by recent Claremont Graduate School grad Chris Trueman\, and German artist Mira Schnedler\, a recent transplant from Berlin. \;

\n

This series of two and three-pe rson exhibitions feature Los Angeles-based artists and the improvisational interplay of their artworks.  \;Although the exhibitions are not themat ically based\, there is an interesting exchange between each artist and the ir work. \;

\n

< strong>Trueman and Schnedler were clearly born fr om different art worlds\, each deriving their inspiration from different ar tists and artistic sources.  \;Trueman&rsquo\;s work i s heavily influenced by American artists and art movements\, while Schnedler&rsquo\;s paintings have much more of a European feel to them. Both\, however\, freely create their work from divergent artistic app roaches while creating work that is uniquely their own. \;

\n

Chris Trueman nimbly and cons ciously combines the forces between hard edge lines and the organic fields of color that occupy his expansive yet immersive canvases. While his comman d of the painted surface is apparent in the formal qualities of his work\, he simultaneously questions and reconstructs the ideological precepts of li ght and space art\, hard edge and organic abstraction. \;

\n

Like Trueman\, Schnedler also borrows from divergent sources\, but she differs from Trueman in that she d oes not combine her disparate influences into one art piece but rather her work forms a collective whole made of different canvas\, each with their ow n style. \; The art movements of German Expressionism\, French Impressi on and gestural abstraction permeate these works. There is an order to her disorder\, and energy and charge to each piece that is clearly mastered by one artist who has not limited herself to one style but rather to one artis t&rsquo\;s own expression. \;
