The AndrewShire Gallery is pleased to present De Stil, a group exhibition of paintings and sculpture by Los Angeles-based artists Steve DeGroodt, Mara De Luca, Andy Kolar, Doug Meyer and Carolee Toon, curated by veteran LA-curator Carl Berg.
De Stil, which in Dutch translates to The Quiet, describes the nature of these five artists’ works. Quiet but revealing, the work presents a visual and conceptual layering that requires the viewer to investigate, ponder, and contemplate the works.
Abstraction has made a tremendous resurgence in the art world in the past decade, as generations of artists continue to explore this form in their practice. De Stil includes a mix of both younger and older artists whose investigation of abstraction evolves from different eras and approaches. Crossing the boundaries of concept and time, there is an underlying synergy between the works in the exhibition, a fertile interaction that emphasizes the quietness, the stillness, of each piece.
Berg, the exhibition curator, has had a long-term interest in abstraction, having curated over a dozen exhibitions exploring the genre. De Stil is the first exhibition he has curated at the AndrewShire Gallery. He will continue his exploration of abstraction with a second show at the gallery in the fall of 2013.
