The show explores confrontational and performative portraiture works by seven artists (and surprises from a private collection!)
When walking around Mark di Suvero’s massive sculpture "Eppur si Muove” I tried to imagine what it must have been like to craft it. It is cut from a massive sheet of stainless steel and is coiled and twisted into an “undulating mobius band”. It appears as if it should be moving, as if it were a spiraling streamer. The title translates into “and yet it moves,” which is a quote from Galileo. The sculpture requires movement on the part of the viewer as well as you have to move around it to see it visually twist and turn.
“I like paintings that balance contradictions. I like paintings that look clear and simple at first glance and then sort of crumble under your gaze. And it’s even better if further looking enables you to put it together again, understand it in a new way.”—Thomas Nozkowski.
You can see Nozkowski's abstract paintings, all of which are 16x20, at the opening tonight @pacegallery (W25th). Reception is from 6-8pm.
