SCAPE is pleased to announce a group exhibition titled "LUX: Variations on a White Theme" featuring a variety of artists that find inspiration in different materials and methods, exploring the interaction of light and subtle gradations of white.

Artists, Dean Andrews, Pegan Brooke, Colleen Collett, Julie Easton, Brad Howe, Ann Mallory, Danis McDermott, Scott McMillin, Masami Tsuchikawa and select sculptures from the 2011 Frostig Collection will be featured in the exhibition.

Scott McMillin and Dean Andrews create abstract, and effective grid compositions with contrasting materials.  Both seek to explore the grid within a post-minimalist aesthetic.  However, Scott McMillin’s work appears fiercely masculine with their hard edge, recycled automobile parts, vs. Dean Andrews ethereal and lustrous surfaces which incorporate pigment with glass microspheres.

On another end of the spectrum, works by Pegan Brook and Danis McDermott strive for a soft lyrical reference to nature through their subtle compositions and gradations of white.  The subtle contrasts in their compositions find a way to communicate the fleeting qualities in nature.


Artworks by other artists such as Colleen Collett, Julie Easton, and Masami Tsuchikawa emphasize the repetition of pattern and create dramatic, monochromatic works that accentuate the effect of shadow within their compositions.  The culmination of this group exhibition reveals a wide exploration of the color white, textures and surfaces that continue to intrigue artists today.


The exhibition space at Southern California Art Projects and Exhibitions | SCAPE strives to bring provocative and fresh exhibits to the art community in Orange County and beyond. Additionally, SCAPE owners Jeannie Denholm and Diane Nelson offer an art advising service where they recommend contemporary works of art in response to specific client requests, based on a thorough assessment of the patron’s objectives, aesthetic preferences and budget.
