Galleri Urbane will present artist and architect Gail Peter Borden for an exhibition of new paintings and sculpture. "Spaced" features Borden’s signature resin cast acrylic panels that employ geometry to create spatial configurations and produce depth from flatness. Through single unit and multi-panel compositions across four new series, Borden continues to forge art and architecture and explore the perceptual nature of his formal systems.
Crisp geometric fields of color serve as the basis of Borden’s investigation of form and space. Vibrant hues create edges, corners, and planes, forming micro environments within each panel. Perspective is harnessed for effect as angled projections imply depth and space to the human eye. Glossy resin surfaces homogenize the brushstrokes below, transforming each scene into an industrialized art object. The paintings are often presented as modular units of larger clusters, inviting the potential for more complex environments to arise in the overall composition.
Borden’s paintings combine the compositional integrity of abstract expressionism with the clarity of form in minimalism. Sleek and pared down to the most essential elements of color, form, and material, the works maintain the ability to offer maximum sensorial effect.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through November 13.
