Merry Go Round

A Visual Feast of Dots and Circles

July 5 – August 11, 2013

This new exhibition examines many of the ways in which artists use dots or circles as the dominant elements in creating abstract imagery.
Artists included in the show are: Gabriel Barcia-Colombo, Beth Dary, Elizabeth Duffy, Treasure Frey, Pauline Galiana, Arpie Gennetian Najarian, Abby Goldstein, Michiyo Ihara, Joanie Lemercier, Joan Lurie, James Minden, Viviane Rombaldi Seppey, Taney Roniger, Katia Santibanez and Melissa Zexter.

Within this exhibition’s focus on the circle, a dialogue emerges between the high versus low, organic versus manipulated work. The physical mark-making in Taney Roniger’s Bifurcation series and James Minden’s Apart is aggressive yet graceful. It is echoed in the craft elements of Pauline Galiana’s Shredded series, Melissa Zexter’s Russian City, Viviane Rombardi-Seppey’s work, and Arpie Gennetian Najarian’s Skagwayskizzers. In these, the mark of the hand is less defiant but undoubtedly present. The stitching, cutting, hole-punching, and pasting is all imbued with the artists’ devotional efforts. Elizabeth Duffy’s meticulous work with circle reinforcements successfully creates texture and visual interest within an all-white palette. As well, there is a perfected intricacy in the drawings by Michiyo Ihara and Katia Santibanez, their gray color palettes and organic and delicate presence relates well to the modern and individualistic sculptures by Joan Lurie. The natural world is a notable influence within these works, and their soft lines create a nice juxtaposition to Joanie Lemercier’s geometric Light Canvas, similarly created with pencil on paper, though adding the sublime projection of light. It is the overarching commonalities of this work-- repetition, form, space—which creates a cohesive and contemplative exhibition.
