December 10, 2016 – January 20, 2017 at Artspace Warehouse: Corner of the Universe
New art exhibition Corner of the Universe opens December 10, 2016 at Artspace Warehouse. Featured artists include Gareth Griffith, Ryan Schmidt, Taylor White, Leonardo Aguirre, and Alexander Eulert.
Opening Reception Saturday December 10, 5-7pm.
Gareth Griffiths' sculptures are influenced by West Coast architecture called “Googie”. The origin of Googie derives from a John Lautner designed coffee shop built in West Hollywood. Features of this Mid-Century modern style include upswept roofs, curvaceous, geometric shapes, and bold use of glass, steel and neon.
Alex Eulert's paintings are abstract propositions of worlds where divergent forces coalesce into harmonious aesthetic interaction. He draws his inspiration from a life long fascination with man as an integral part of nature, his manipulation of it and nature’s process of reclaiming human creations with the passage of Time.
From traditional methods, to working in complete darkness and designing physical challenges which place him in a state of physical stress when painting, Taylor White's work is often intended to become an obstacle to be defeated.
Ryan Schmidt is inspired by everyday life. He loves to create and design, driven by the impact of making this imagination into a realized form. Schmidt's mission is to share the gift of inspiration through reflection with the passion for stainless steel, and desire to build sculptures that will last generations.
Uruguayan artist Leonardo Aguirre creates visually animated scenes in a theatrical environment. The idea of a colorful atmosphere with everyday recognizable signs and elements allow the art aficionado to imagine scenes one day and discover another story the next day.
