Lowell Ryan Projects celebrates its inaugural exhibition, “Mind Body Soul.” The show brings together three artists––Samuel Jablon, Spencer Lewis, and Maysha Mohamedi––to explore the complex relationship between abstract painting and our everyday surroundings.
Jan12-2019-LowellRyanProjects-SamuelJablon-CrystalEmptiness-2018Samuel Jablon, Crystal Emptiness, 2018

“Everyday surroundings” encompasses a full spectrum of definitions, from the poetics of the city (Jablon), to formal notions of spatiality (Lewis), to the aesthetics of language and earth matter as art materials (Mohamedi). Likewise, the tone varies from spiritual to ironic to referential to irreverent––sometimes overlapping. Despite all these differences, the three artists share the same foundational approach. They rely on gesture and color––or more specifically the medium of painting––as a tool to probe their surroundings. Art Party: 6-9pm; Lowell Ryan Projects, 4851 West Adams Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90016; https://www.lowellryanprojects.com/
