Today is the last day for Drawing Now in Paris, but "Emergence," an elegant group exhibition of reductive abstract painting will be on view at Hôtel de Sauroy through April 27. Curators Katrin Bremermann, Erin Lawlor and Yifat Gat have assembled a handsome show featuring work by an international cohort of painters who invest fairly simple geometric markmaking with substantial complexity.
"In philosophy, systems theory, science, and art, emergence is the way complex systems and patterns arise out of a multiplicity of relatively simple interactions," they write in the exhibition statement. "Emergence is central to the theories of integrative levels and of complex systems."
The impressive roster includes Eve Aschheim, A.T Biltereyst, Katrin Bremermann, Sharon Butler, Claire Chesnier, Clem Crosby, Fieroza Doorsen, Amy Feldman, Yifat Gat, Kevin Monot, Erin Lawlor, Paul Pagk, Marine Pages, Andrew Seto, Radu Tuian, Richard Van der Aa, Don Voisine, and Michael Voss. I'm pleased to be in such esteemed company.
Here are some installation snaps:
