Anne Russinof posts an image blog of the exhibition Meta Vista, curated by Matthew Neil Gehring. The exhibition features works by Rachel Beach, Paul Behnke, Vincent Como, Matthew Neil Gehring, Beth Gilfilen, Jason Karolak, Joan Mellon, Rebecca Murtaugh, and Kirk Stoller. An online version of the show is concurrently posted at Curating Contemporary.
In the curatorial statement Gehring writes: "Each of the artists in this exhibition generate work from a distinct point of view, but each point of view is one that is illuminated and connected by this show’s title, Meta Vista. Meta: beyond, transcendent, self referential and critical, in the abstract. Vista: an extensive mental view, a distant expanse. These artists make the invisible visible, make the real unreal, and vice versa. Each is engaged in a practice of advanced visual art that overtly or subtly engages an existential discourse; form and formlessness, presence and absence while remembering that a vision is both an analytical tool and an intuitive experience, as well as both difficult to attain and a pleasure to apprehend."
