ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens invites you to celebrate Fluidity, our exhibition featuring new works by sculptor Karolina Maszkiewicz and painter Chase Langford. Both artists are inspired by the nature and culture of Los Angeles, where they reside and work.
Born in Poland, Maszkiewicz’s interest in nature was inspired by her mother’s work in botany. When she moved to Los Angeles, she was captivated by the kinetic energy of mobiles and began to make her own. Each wooden form on Maszkiewicz’s mobiles move and change on their own without separation from its mass. Her mobiles hold a flow state where color stained shapes move freely past one another.
Shapes continue to shift and transcend in Chase Langford’s substantial and kaleidoscopic abstract paintings. They represent the flow of movement through their bright amoebic patterns balanced by steady earth tones. He recalls maps and aerial photography of seacoasts, mountains, farmlands and cities through his cartographic lens. Langford challenges traditional conventions of landscape painting by offering an abstracted vision of space that transforms any specific locale within your memory.
