“Radiant Space” Illuminates Houston with Flashes of the West Coast’s Light and Space Movement
Bernard Jacobson Gallery, Marc Vaux: New Ovals, 2nd May - 31st May 2014
Non-objective painter Marc Vaux explores a range of different materials and media, including drawing, painting, and sculptural reliefs. Mass-produced anodized aluminum, MDF boards, and commercial cellulose spray paints are among the materials he has used in recent work, which is variously described as Minimalist and Constructivist and centers on elemental, hard-edged geometry. Vaux’s primary concerns include the effects of color as light and formal contrasts such as hard and soft shapes, gesture and structure, and closed and open spaces.
