Holly Johnson Gallery presents Anna Bogatin Ott: "The Nature of Things" opening reception
Holly Johnson Gallery will present the opening of "The Nature of Things," an exhibition of recent paintings by Anna Bogatin Ott of Philadelphia.
In Ott's third solo show at the gallery, paintings executed over the last several years attest to her unyielding, exercise in mark making. The works are minimal and abstract indicating a type of tantric and meditative rhythm drawn from her deep interest in Buddhism. The reductive aspect may remind some viewers of Agnes Martin, or other Abstract Expressionists with whom she also shares their interest in the spiritual in art, but here strong color and tension generated by the pull between the horizontal and vertical forces distinguishes Bogatin Ott from her forebears.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through April 25.
