Jason Hoelscher: Recent Paintings, Temporary Gallery Berlin, Germany

Hoelscher-Berlin 2011

Temporary Gallery Berlin is pleased to exhibit Jason Hoelscher: Recent Paintings, a series of works that Hoelscher calls "short attention span paintings for short attention span culture". Combining the quick-glance semiotics of corporate iconography with the gestalt read of 1960s minimalism, Hoelscher's latest series of paintings incorporate areas of raw, unprimed canvas that play off of the highly-finished painted areas, exploring the range of contrasts between constructed flatness and literal flatness.

poëma – Kate Beck, Element kunst + ontwerp, Waalre, Netherlands

Beck_Kate_Eixstere_Oil.Graphite.onLinen_60x60inches_2010

mcasd-phenomenal

In the 1960s and 70s, light became a primary medium for a loosely-affiliated group of artists working in Los Angeles.
