Multiplicity

Opened Thursday, June 25, 2009 – Friday August 7, 2009

Multiplicity is a group show of painting, drawing and sculpture that will feature the works of Lynn Aldrich, Joshua Aster, Anoka Faruqee and Steve Schmidt. These artists all make use of layering repeated elements to create their work. As in nature the repetition of elements form structures that are the basis of all physical objects. In Multiplicity the artists mimic nature by composing their work using repeated elements that extend either in a plane (Aster, Faruqee, Schmidt) or three-dimensionally (Aldrich). Where these artists however diverge from nature, is that the arrangement of elements they make do not specifically follow the rules of nature. Rather the artists have “free-will” to arrange and combine elements according to their own imagination.
