IN FORMATION: Group Show at Hashimoto Contemporary
curated by Jennifer Rizzo
February 8th - February 29th, 2020
Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present In Formation, a group exhibition curated by Jennifer Rizzo. The exhibition brings together a group of artists who emphasize the use of geometric shapes and organic forms in their work.
Brooklyn-based Scott Albrecht is perhaps best known for his cut, painted and assembled wood pieces, merging the artists interest in form, attention to detail and typography.
The playfulness and low-brow style of Oakland-based Jeffrey Cheung’s boldly colored contorted nude figures explore themes of queerness, identity and intersectionality.
Minnesota-based Gregory Euclide creates sculptural relief works, paintings, and installations. Euclide juxtaposes naturally occurring, organic matter with artificial, man-made materials and found objects to create works which resemble landscape paintings but defy categorization.
Mary Iverson lives and works in Seattle, Washington. Her paintings explore the balance between the natural world and industrial activities, inspiring conversations about the causes and consequences of climate change.
Illinois-based Erik Jones utilizes elements of hyperrealism and geometric expressionism to investigate the figure, form and composition. Rendering his subjects in a hyperreal aesthetic, they are enshrouded within a colorful swell of shapes, color and form.
Augustine Kofie is a Los Angles-based artist, who creates works which harmonize opposing and contradictory dynamics, setting futuristic compositions against vintage earth-toned palettes. By doing so, the artist creates technically complex, meticulously structured formations through handmade line-work and layering.
Dan Lam, a Dallas, Texas-based sculptor and painter, explores color and form in her organically shaped sculptures. The artists engaging yet oddly unsettling sculptures highlight the artists fascination with color theory, evoking otherworldly creatures in a visceral state between consumption and consummation.
San Francisco-based Sean Newport’s sculptures consider perceived notions of reality by creating a digital aesthetic through analog processes. Newport hand-cuts wood into three-dimensional shapes, which are brightly painted and and arranged, unveiling patterns which emerge from unique geometric designs.
Please join us Saturday, February 8th from 6pm - 8pm for the opening reception of In Formation. Some of the artists will be in attendance. The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, February 29th. For more information, additional images, or exclusive content, please email Jennifer Rizzo at firstname.lastname@example.org
