Raymonde Beraud, Ethan Cook, Roman Liška, Nazafarin Lotfi
February 21 – March 30, 2013
Reception Opening: Thursday, February 21, 2013, 6 – 8pm
Ana Cristea Gallery is pleased to present “Pattern Recognition”, a group exhibition that brings together the accomplished work of four emerging international artists: Raymonde Beraud, Ethan Cook, Roman Liška and Nazafarin Lotfi.
The works on view give evidence to a diverse and rigorous engagement with the expanded field of painting. They display daring investigations into the physical act of making: although abstract, the works are refreshingly visceral by virtue of their concrete materiality. Grouped together, these objects act as a membrane between the abstract and concrete, between discipline, formality and improvisation. Despite the poignant immediacy of the works, they are developed with acute attention to detail, precise in their execution. This refined skill is expertly articulated in the multiple layers in which these works have been deconstructed and reformed. Compiled from unusual and innovative mediums, these layerings are absorbed into a whole that simultaneously reveals and conceals – exposing the relationship between methods, means and meaning. The viewer is brought to consider the time and process, not only of the labor itself, but also of the progressive patterns of thought, as a new sensibility towards materiality and aesthetics emerges in a young generation of promising artists.
For additional information, please contact Ana Cristea Gallery by phone at (212) 904-1100 or by e-mail at email@example.com. The gallery is located at 521 West 26th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues and is open from Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 6pm.
