The first exhibition, Surface, examines concepts of flatness, two dimensionality, and veneer. It looks at what is happening on the face of things, sometimes questioning or challenging notions of depth. In contrast the show Structure investigates what happens below the surface and behind the facade. The artists represented here share a common interest in getting behind what appears at face value, and they often strive to create alternative paradigms.
Surface and Structure.
Lucas Schoormans is very pleased to announce two related summer group exhibitions, Surface and Structure. The gallery has brought together a broad range of artists to examine distinct concerns in contemporary art.
The first exhibition, Surface, examines concepts of flatness, two dimensionality, and veneer. It looks at what is happening on the face of things, sometimes questioning or challenging notions of depth. Much of the work here engages more painterly concerns and traces itself along Pop lines.
In contrast, Structure investigates what happens below the surface and behind the faÃ§ade. The artists represented here share a common interest in getting behind what appears at face value, and they often strive to create alternative paradigms. The affinities of these works lie more with sculpture and conceptual art.
Surface, which opens on June 2nd from 6â€“8pm, includes work by the following artists: Franz Ackerman, Ann Agee, Brian Alfred, Laylah Ali, Chiho Aoshima, Jeremy Blake, Paul Chan, Andy Collins, Amy Cutler, Marcel Dzama, Judith Eisler, Jeff Elrod, Stuart Elster, Angelo Filomeno, George Fitzpatrick, Torben Giehler, Wayne Gonzales, Santiago Hernandez, David Kelley, Udomsak Krisanamis, Chris Kysor, Andrew Masullo, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara, Aaron Parazette, Jim Richards, Dean Snyder, Yutaka Sone, Lyle Starr, Hiroshi Sugito, John Wesley, Charlotta Westergren, and Karen Yasinsky.
