Fervent geometry at McKenzie Fine Art

This past week my in-box has been jammed with announcements for shows that open in the next couple weeks. Here are a few images from an exhibition I can’t wait to see. I’ll post more fall previews in the next couple days.

Sarah Walker, “Masses and Forces,” 2010, acrylic on wood panel, 26 x 28″
Walker layers overlapping fields of visual information that have their sources in the physical worlds of geography, urban planning, and cartography as well as the dematerialized zones of the internet and the psyche. Walker says she grew up with hoarders, which somehow might explain the dazzling excess of her paintings.

Douglas Melini, Untitled, 2009, acrylic on canvas with hand-painted wood frame, 23 1/2 x 19 1/2″

“I’m very interested in how our body and mind respond to vibratory experiences,” Melini writes. The space he creates travels inward, oscillating back and forth, folding and unfolding within the picture.

Gary Petersen, “Step Up,” 2011, acrylic and oil on masonite panel, 20 x 16″
Petersen creates a flex-y pictorial space that elegantly bends and torques. And oh what beautiful color….!
Douglas Melini, Gary Petersen, Sarah Walker,” McKenzie Fine Art, New York, NY. September 8 – October 8, 2011. Opening reception: Thursday, September 15, 2011.
