Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
“Reflection/ Refraction,” a group exhibit that closed over the weekend at Front Room Gallery, meditated on changing perceptions of pattern, form and color. Bound by an adherence to geometric abstraction, the work conceptually experimented with notions of space and balance, as well as light and shadow. The artists’ designs ranged from prismatic to psychedelic, sometimes deriving their structure from ancient symbols and religious imagery. Many of the works presented false optical impressions, manipulating the viewer’s immediate perception of the piece. The multidimensional works were especially trippy, as some were said to explore the fourth dimension.
Artists included in the exhibition were Mark Warren Jacques, Meryl Pataky, Randy Colosky, Sean Newport and Sebastian Wahl. The collection incorporated a variety of media such as painting, sculpture, wood, resin, neon and ceramic.
