On April 3, 2021, William Turner Gallery (Santa Monica), celebrates “CrossCurrents” from noon to 7pm (see below for Covid guidelines). The group exhibition offers an exciting sampling of work produced in and around the time of the pandemic. Many of the artists in this exhibition continue to experiment and probe the expressive possibilities of the materials with which they are working, creating works that in some instances inspire meditative reflection, and in others utilize reflective materials to inspire movement and interactivity.
Casper Brindle presents three dramatic investigations into color and perspective, utilizing automotive paints to create poetic, spatially dynamic atmospheres.
Alex Couwenberg makes a welcome return to the gallery with bold, engaging new work which create wonderfully complex symphonic compositions in line, color, shape and texture.
Shingo Francis presents beautifully subtle, gossamer-like oils that shift and move with a grace that’s like wind over water.
Jimi Gleason introduces two exuberantly gestural, lustrous silver nitrate paintings, edged with electric bands of color.
Peter Lodato offers new oils on canvas, whose layers of paint and scumbled surfaces resonate like tuning forks to the soul.
Andy Moses follows his acclaimed solo show with two new works, whose surfaces shimmer and shift as they pull one into their radiant spaces.
Nellie King Solomon makes her gallery debut with two elegant works on mylar, where thick improvisational gestures appear to float above the mylar’s milky translucency.
Jennifer Wolf utilizes layers of painted silk and mineral pigments to add luminous depth to her exquisitely moody abstract landscapes.
