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.
