ALLOY featuring Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann at Laura Korman Gallery in LA

Sunday, November 6th, 2016

Laura Korman Gallery is pleased to present, Alloy, an exhibition of new works by Washington DC based artist, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann, whose work Dunhuang VIII is shown here courtesy of the artist and Laura Korman Gallery.

The exhibition is on view until January 21, 2017 at Laura Korman Gallery Bergamot Station Arts Center, Santa Monica.

Alloys are typically defined as substances which are composed of two or more metals intimately mixed as by fusion. This notion of “intimate mixing” is key to Mann’s artistic practice. Her energetic abstractions are synthetic in nature – pulling inspiration from diverse sources, Mann skillfully mixes media and imagery not traditionally used in concert. Drawing inspiration from a recent visit to the ancient site of the Mogao Caves situated on the Dunhuang oasis on the edge of the Gobi Desert, Mann presents us with a collection of works that continue her exploration into the delicate balances between void and abundance, chaos and order, and creation and destruction.

Laura Korman Gallery is pleased to exhibit artists Cara Barer, Heather Carisch, James Lecce, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann, Maureen McQuillan, Kristina Quinones, and Randall Stoltzfus in the group exhibition, SPECTRUM. The exhibition will be on view through October 29, 2016, with a public reception on Saturday, July 30th, from 5-8 p.m.

SPECTRUM brings together seven artists from across the country with vastly different practices, who are united by their intrepid handling of color as an evocative agent of expression.

In James Lecce’s psychedelic paintings, color and form fluidly intertwine in elegant, swirling compositions that simultaneously recall Art Nouveau patterning, Op Art, action painting, rock formations and pools of water. These works are a marriage of intuitive painting and methodical planning, achieved by pouring acrylic pigments one-by-one onto the canvas, building up multiple layers, some of which he manipulates with his brush, some of which he allows to move freely across the surface, creating a constant play between control and chance.

Maureen McQuillan adopts a similarly labor-intensive method – slowly and repetitively laying ink lines in layers of polychromatic acrylic. By manipulating these materials to fold and bend into ribbon-like spirals, the colorful optic patterns seem to suggest the infinitely small structures that underlie all living things. One can’t help but think of the double helix of DNA or a flower petal beneath a microscope when looking at McQuillan’s poetic images.
