Diane Rosenstein Gallery debuted “Space-time,” a solo exhibition by Lisa Beck. The artist, who is based in Brooklyn, has shown her work extensively for the past forty years in New York and Europe. “Space-time” is Lisa Beck’s inaugural exhibition in Los Angeles. The opening reception was held on November 12, 2022, and will run through January 7, 2023.

The exhibition is comprised of new work as well as selected pieces from 2012–2019, including painting, sculpture, and installation, often in combination. Beck’s works will inhabit the gallery in a dynamic installation that includes floor placements; suspended sculptures and double-sided paintings; and works that take place in corners of the gallery.

Space-time embodies the idea that artworks can function as transcendental objects. Many of Beck’s works employ reflective materials such as mylar, mirror, aluminum leaf, metals, and polished acrylic. They look different from different angles as the viewer moves, highlighting the act of perception and providing a glimpse of the flux that is present behind the facade of solidity and continuity of matter. The circle, in all its many references – atoms, stars, cells, voids – is a frequent element in her work.

On view: November 12, 2022 – January 7, 2023
