TEXTURE / PATTERN: Adam Belt, Kim MacConnel, Ed Moses, Anne Mudge, Zak Ové, Andrew Pasquella, Christopher Puzio & Brian Wills | July 15 – August 26, 2017

TEXTURE / PATTERN

Quint Gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibition of painting, wall hangings, and sculpture. TEXTURE / PATTERN is a grouping of artworks composed of non-traditional materials or utilize pattern in their composition. Quint Gallery is pleased to show for the first time artworks by British artist Zak Ové and Los Angeles-based Andrew Pasquella. Also on view will be an extension of Lee Materazzi’s exhibition, PLaY, which will feature an installation of swings and select photographs from her current exhibition (on view through July 8th). The opening reception will be on Saturday, July 15th from 10am to 1pm and is open to the public.

Adam Belt’s new series are loosely poured paint and glass powder over topographies that are inspired by real places. The glass powder is illuminated under direct light. Belt has long been interested in using light in his artworks.

Kim MacConnel is well known for using untraditional materials such as beach trash, bed sheets, and flocking. On view will be a painting made on bed sheets from 1981. The wall hanging is a beautiful example of work from this time period by MacConnel, who would sew the painted sections together creating vertical compositions with differing patterns and representations.

The iconic patterns used by Ed Moses in his grid paintings are a variation on a theme that the artist has used for decades. The slashes of paint on canvas are a meditation on patterns that create pathways through the composition. Moses has had a long career experimenting with materials and exploring the phenomenal world.

Anne Mudge makes sculptures of string and wire that are delicately balanced and hang from the ceiling. Her process driven practice is inspired by modules and accretion. The artworks hold themselves together while also balancing the material using gravity. They are delicate sculptures that evoke an exploration of chaos and order.

Zak Ové is a British artist of Trinidadian descent, whose work is influenced by the emancipation of personal existence through the power of play. Linking ancient ancestry (many Trinidadians identify as descendants of the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria) to modern carnival appeals very much to the artist’s sensibility in the series on view. The wall hanging works as an African grid system of mainly concentric oscillating openwork layered circles.

Andrew Pasquella is a Los Angeles-based artist experimenting with industrial materials. Pasquella is interested in the idea of natural accidents intertwined with ordered patterns. In his artwork made of resin and rubber, he uses a two-step process to cover the resin in rubber and then subtracts the rubber by hand in a linear pattern of rows that reveal the candy-colored resin below.

Christopher Puzio is a sculptor using design elements, which shape the composition of his artworks. Pairing 3-D design with his contemporary art practice, Puzio has created wonderful sculptures that utilize intricate patterns and pop with color.

Brian Wills’ new wall sculpture is a variation on the wedges he made for our 2014 exhibition with the artist. The four-sided wedge combines a varying pattern of rayon thread that reveal their depth of color from each angle.
