Event Details


OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, Jan. 9, 2014      6-8pm

Tibet House US is pleased to announce Mandala: Locus of Thought, an exhibition exploring the duality of the mandala as a locus--both a locality and an abstract center of power--through the work of fifteen contemporary NYC-based artists.

Arlene Shechet’s Flow Blue series is a centerpiece of the exhibition. These cobalt-colored drawings in paper reference blueprints of Buddhist stupas, collapsing the architectural lifespan from origin to ruin in the map of the mandala. Drawing from the powerful symbolism of Tantric imagery to create a hybrid iconography, Stephen Mueller’s jewel-hued abstractions oscillate between broad planes of color and geometric volumes in the digital lexicon of gradients. Matt Jones’ cosmological tondo paintings are simultaneously dense with matter and portals to an infinite void.

Featured artists:  
Alyssa Gorelick, Andrew Molleur, Arlene Shechet, Brian Bulfer, Chuck Webster, Fabienne Lasserre, Jeffrey Scott Mathews, Jenny Blumenfield, Lauren Smith, Matt Jones, Meredith Walker, Prithi Gowda, Steph Gonzalez-Turner and Stephen Mueller. Through this special exhibition, these artists employ familiar geometry and architectural elements to represent intangible concepts, reaching towards the absolute with a vocabulary of earthly equivalents.

EXHIBITION DURATION:  January 9 – March 3, 2014
