Freeform Geometries

Peter Malone reviews the Summer Invitational show – featuring works by Rick Klauber, Joanne Mattera, Paul Mogensen, Gary Petersen, and Sarah Walker – at Elizabeth Harris Gallery, New York, on view through July 15, 2014.

Malone writes that the show "reveals how artists no longer serve that grave, near-religious mysticism that geometry brought to early modernism. These painters use geometry as a freeform language, applied in novel and expressive modes, effortlessly morphing the linear with the organic… What’s most intriguing about this variety of attitudes toward what was once considered a rather sober subject matter is how it speaks to our relationship to technology without any single artist addressing that particular topic directly. It is a reminder that there may be a positive side to pluralism — that there are changes taking place in painting without a conscious effort on the part of any one individual or group to steer things in what they perceive to be an advantageous direction."
