Gallery Diet is proud to announce a new solo exhibition by Bhakti Baxter. Continuing the artist’s interest in geometry, 2014 will feature a series of concrete sculptures and ink on mylar drawings that explore volume, surface, space, and composition guided by fundamental geometric theorems. Each of the concrete sculptures offers a unique handling of mathematic axioms such as the Pythagorean theorem and the vesica siscis. In the project room, Baxter has prepared a series of drawings which return to his use of ink on mylar and incorporate recent experiences with elementary shapes and proportions. This playful body of work balances between strict mathematical laws and anarchic immateriality, embracing geometry as a dependable truth with a supernatural counterpart.
Bhakti Baxter is in the permanent collections of The Pérez Art Museum Miami; The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami; and various other private and public institutions. His work has been exhibited at the Bass Museum of Art Miami Beach, Proyectos Ultravioleta, the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale, Bravin Lee Programs, and the Perrotin Gallery. This will be Baxter’s second solo exhibition at Gallery Diet.
