Pocket Utopia is pleased to present a solo show of artist Fred Gutzeit. Paying homage, through a billboard-sized installation and painting, to the late artist Lee Lozano, Fred Gutzeit turns Pocket Utopia into a walk-in cosmology of wave, particle and worm hole. In addition, Gutzeit will display preparatory drawings and relevant sketchbooks.

Gutzeit considers Lee Lozano a mentor. The idea for this show came from a notebook that Lozano gave Gutzeit. The notebook, filled with graph paper, was inscribed with this sentiment, “Love to Fred from Lee Lozano.” The notebook was used to plot out the installation for Pocket Utopia.

Containing waves (and much, much more) similar in vibe to several Lee Lozano paintings, Gutzeit’s printed and painted whirling, flashing landscape is a spectrumatic fantansia, inspired by Lozano’s rule-based process. Fred Gutzeit expands upons Lee Lozano’s rules, adding higher mathematics and good painterly hunches that map out the space and place of a pocket utopia.

In the project space, artist and musician Jeremy Jones presents a hand-crafted and unique surfboard and Audra Wolowiec continues to connect the lines between her drawings, performances, and exchanges. In addition, Libby Hartle has editioned a new and limited gocco print.

Kevin Regan will join Amy Lincoln as an resident artist.

In Conjunction with the exhibition, Fred Gutzeit will host several salon discussions; including, Sunday, November 9th and Sunday, December 7th both starting at 4:00 pm.

Pocket Utopia is a relational exhibition, salon and social space run by artist Austin Thomas.
