at Parallel Art Space
Curated by Mel Prest, Doppler features work by 22 artists who explore the interplay of two and three dimensional space, often hovering in a sensory space between the two. The installation beautifully highlights dialogues between clusters of adjacent works. With the exception of a wall painting by Gilbert Hsiao and a large canvas by Karen Schifano, all of the pieces on exhibit are intimate in size.
The work on view spans a wide variety of approaches to art-making: ranging from the pared down elegance of Brent Hallard, Kevin Finklea and Richard Bottwin, to the complex surfaces of Mel Prest, Stephen Maine and Steven Baris, and the subtle geometries of Debra Ramsay and Nancy White.
For a comprehensive walk through of the exhibit, click here to see photographs taken by Richard Bottwin, one of the artists whose work is in the exhibit.
There is still one more weekend to see this wonderful exhibit, which closes on Sunday, August 18.
