Description

SLATE contemporary gallery presents a modern and minimalist exhibition, The Edge, featuring two painters and one sculptor. The Edge brings into focus the lines, curves and forms that make up compositions that can be at once geometric and organic.

Eric Bohr’s ongoing painting series Frontiers, are colorist, hard-edge paintings concerned with indicating space in the simplest manner possible. The relative relationships between the borders, shapes, and colors create a sense of depth with layered forms hovering in front of and behind the picture plane, seemingly floating and moving past one another. Lola begins each of her resin paintings by choosing the colors she will work with. As she pours, a form begins to appear on the surface and a dialogue begins.  Lola responds by carefully controlling the dynamic material’s flow, coaxing it into contours that are sometimes tightly controlled and at other times seem to have a life of their own.  Peter St. Lawrence‘s ceramic sculpture references human shapes and ancient sculpture, while stylistically leaning toward mid-century modernism. Certainly, the work’s simplicity brings it toward minimalism and a serious kind of formalism–a realm where the grace in the arc of a curve, the play between form and negative space, and the beauty of the pure material, are poetic and engaging enough to give the work a compelling presence.
