532 Gallery is pleased to present a winter group show. This show features many returning artists to our gallery, as well as a few artists showing with us for the first time. The works on view include smaller scale works in a variety of mediums.
To highlight just a few. Text-based “Witt” drawings by Alastair Noble, a meditation on Wittgenstein’s “Remarks on Colour”, communicate the colors mentioned and the content in Wittgenstein’s text about the ambiguities of light and color. John Parks’s delicately painted “Garden with Soldier” presents a wistful and very gently ironic vision of his English heritage. Holger Keifel’s photograph of Louise Bourgeois ‘Hand with Clay’ exists in a hidden message or puzzle. Kathy Bruce’s eclectic signature mix of collage and drawing takes a more classical turn in her “Adaptive Behavior” series. Abstract paintings by Jac Lahav evoke the philosopher’s stone, magical talismans, his youth by the Mediterranean. Ilyan Ivanov’s “Self Portrait” paintings explore the ambivalence between geometric structure and free brush strokes, reflecting one’s own personal conflicts between convention and spontaneity. In Kylie Heidenheimer’s “Carnival”, she twists and wrests space via “drawn” line and intentionally placed marks. Marcy Brafman’s “Cents Rubbing Bestine” is a meditation on the magnetic field where the invisible runs the show, a place half remembered.
Each of the artists featured in the show speaks in a distinctive voice.
