Robischon Gallery’s “Concatenation” expands upon the connected dialogues of six recognized artists of distinction: the innovative sculptors Jae Ko (D.C.), Ted Larsen (NM) and Derrick Velasquez (CO), Linda Fleming (CO/CA), Katy Stone (WA) and painter Amy Ellingson (CA).
The varied practices of the artists on view investigates the territory of Material Abstraction through the visual vernacular of the curvilinear. Each artist’s conceptual and progressive approach toward form, surface and personal sense of color are revealed – whether it be through digital means, employing an Ombre technique or a compelling use of light and reflection.
The elaborate six-part presentation features a wide range of scale and media including adding machine paper, automotive metals, vinyl and encaustic. Concurrently presented in the Viewing Room Gallery is a series of complex, monochromatic abstractions by Erin Wiersma (KS), utilizing densely layered acrylic and graphite on paper.
