Andrea Zlotowitz reviews Surface Tension at Garis & Hahn, New York, on view through November 14, 2015. The show features works by Lala Abaddon, Jamie Powell, Sarah Sieradzki, and Rachael Wren.
Zlotowitz writes: "Through the subtle hues of their palettes and the artworks' illusory textures, a cohesive vision emerges, connecting the four distinct bodies of work in this show. Offering a counter-vision to a computer-generated dependence, Surface Tension partakes in a growing dialogue about digital aesthetics, reality versus illusion, and hands-on approaches to the paradigm of digital art as we currently understand it. The transformative works glowing in the gallery are beyond digital or analogue; they simply show the incredible things artists can do when they aren't limited by medium or movement."
