From the Press Release:
Laura Korman Gallery is pleased to exhibit artists Cara Barer, Heather Carisch, James Lecce, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann, Maureen McQuillan, Kristina Quinones, and Randall Stoltzfus in the group exhibition, SPECTRUM…
SPECTRUM brings together seven artists from across the country with vastly different practices, who are united by their intrepid handling of color as an evocative agent of expression.
Oscillating between abstraction and representation, Randall Stoltzfus uses the circle as a basis for his practice. Conjuring up visions of Seurat’s neo-Impressionist Pointillist paintings and Van Gogh’s Starry Night, Stoltzfus intricately builds layers of multicolored circular patterns with oil, adding carefully selected pigments and gold leaf to produce images that seem to glow from within. These abstract landscapes at once reference the macro and the micro, as Stoltzfus breaks up the picture plane into a myriad of mesmerizing forms that taken from afar form a single cohesive image.
