Sequence: an exhibit with Levent Tuncer at Blank Space

Oct_Evite_Final

I am happy to invite you to the art exhibit Sequence, at Blank Space Gallery on 25th Street in New York City. This exhibit will feature four of my paintings paired with the work of the talented Levent Tuncer . It has been fun to see the patterns in Mr. Tuncer’s and my own paintings interact in reproductions as this show has come together. There is a very real but not always obvious visual conversation happening. It’s about pattern and painting, certainly. But there is something more that is subtle and quiet, and not easily put into words. Stop by the opening on October 7th and tell us how you would say it.

BlankSpaceLogoBlank Space is pleased to present Sequence, a duo exhibition featuring the artists Levent Tuncer & Randall Stoltzfus. Both artists’ paintings feature concepts of repetition; as each’s pattern continues, the sequence of creating by simultaneously repeating and evolving is both engaging and alluring.

Through his method of overlaying a single tile pattern, Tuncer’s paintings slowly unfold their three- dimensional ridges, spreading a sequence of changing shadows. His paintings deal with ideas of repetition, order and disorder, history and fiction, change, and a primal awareness of the duality that is inherent in all cultures. Stoltzfus’ primary use of circular patterns excites and engages the eye, subtly changing as both the light and the perspective of the viewer moves. His paintings create an opportunity to slow down a bit, which can lead to seeing something unexpected. Both artists use repetition to create something new within each work and sequentially throughout the works presented in this exhibition.
