You are cordially invited to the opening exhibition of “Color, Pattern, Texture & Shape”. This exhibition highlights modern-day minimalist abstract art by Steven Alexander, Louise P. Sloane, and Heidi Spector. Each artist pursues geometric minimalism in a distinct way through color, pattern, texture, and shape.
“I work the paintings horizontally, pouring the paint on and scraping it off with a cement trowel, building the surface slowly with multiple thin films of translucent color. This process allows me to inflect the color with undertones and overtones.”
Louise P. Sloane
“Louise P. Sloane is a painter whose distinctive production focuses primarily on color and light, materiality and texture. This became the matrix for the geometric configurations or symbols that she embedded into her paintings early on followed eventually by textual excerpts that ousted the signs. Deeply invested in modernist aesthetics, as most artists of her generation were, she continues to embrace formalism, albeit an expanded, looser concept of it. ” – Lilly Wei
“My work can be described as geometric minimalism composed of repetitive geometric configurations in acrylic with resin on birch panels, cubes, and rhombuses. I work with bold and vibrant candy-like colors that pulse and vibrate bringing certain shades to the forefront and others to the background. I create a grid to formulate the geometric compositions, which are ultimately inspired by musical rhythm and beats.”
This exhibition will be on view from March 13 through April 14, 2019, at Spanierman Modern Miami in the Miami Design District/
