Mondrian Died for Our Sins
In our second show in Bushwick’s Bogart Arts Building, BLAM once again brings together painters from New York and Los Angeles.
Piet Mondrian was one of the giants of 20th Century Art. His simple but highly controlled compositions are universally recognized. Presneill and Spanbock recognizing both his genius and painfully perfect execution have chosen painters from both coasts who in their studio practices are not bound by the constraints he applied to his work. To varying degrees, each artist in the show engages a degree of freedom in the studio that in many respects differentiates today’s artists from those of the past. With a emphasis on the marks made in various techniques, these painters have developed individually rich painterly languages with which to develop their compositions.
It is BLAM’s mission to bring artists of like minds and practices from both sides of the country together to increase both groups visibility and to increase dialogue and growth. With spaces in Los Angeles and Brooklyn, BLAM continues a regular program of exhibitions in both venues.
