Norte Maar presents a major exhibition surveying new work in pattern, repetition and motif titled ”between a place and candy: new works in pattern + repetition + motif.” This exhibition continues Norte Maar’s mission of re-presenting and supporting the advancement of innovative and transgressive work of both emerging, mid-career and historic artists.
The title takes its cue from a poem by Gertrude Stein, who more than one hundred years ago was seeking a literary equivalent to cubism and attempted in her prose to “banish memory” to “articulate a continuous present where writing recreates itself anew in each successive moment.”
The work of these thirty artists should be seen through this early modernist lens.
In their individual way, each, like Stein, use individualized systems to push beyond a mere optical phenomenon, revealing a personal narrative that borders on fictional and real. This unique characteristic introduces new chapter in the history associated with the Pattern and Decoration movement of the 1970’s.
On view from March 16 until June 12 2015

Pentimenti Gallery announces the opening of TERRITORY OF ABSTRACTION, a group show of works by twelve artists. TERRITORY OF ABSTRACTION will feature the work of artists that share an interest in geometry, color, pattern, and repetition. Yet, despite the material and optical similarities each artist approaches their work with a distinct purpose and context, commenting on a variety of subjects such as architecture, space, psychology, and illusion. When put together their work showcases the expansive nature of contemporary abstract art, and the potential content of relatively simple forms.
On view from February 21 until April 4, 2015
