DESCRIPTION

Geometric Days is an exhibition of new painting by 7 artists whose deployment of geometry exposes organizational structures from microscopic, political, and spiritual dimensions. The show is based on the assumption that geometry, abstraction and painting are ingrained in our interpretation of experience—geometry as measurement of space and time, abstraction as poetic expression of the visual, and painting as the manifestation of a will to communicate. These artists propose that geometry isn’t necessarily abstract, but that it is actually a form of reality. And their hand-crafted, anarchic forms undercut geometric abstraction’s historical ties to utopian idealism. Their work calls upon mathematics as a spiritual force (and geometry as its visual realization) that codes the experiences of nature, built environments, social constructs, and the digital world.
