This Friday sees the opening of a local solo exhibition for Rochester NY based artist St. Monci at Axom Gallery. Universal Magnetic will be a continuation of his abstract / geometric based works. Whilst the subject matter is undeniably of it’s time, there is a mid-century / modernist flavour present throughout this artist’s body of work. Always using hard edges and straight lines in his patternation, St. Monci’s work is presented predominantly on paper in a pastel palette throughout; these soft hues complimented by the rounded corners of […]

Last month, White Walls Gallery in San Francisco opened a group exhibition entitled Space//Squared. Curated by Sven Davis, the showing was a followup to an event last year in Portland (covered).

The work was hung on the walls in grids of 24 cards, each echoing the aspect ratio of the individual works themselves as each work was 6×4 inches. The variance of work encompassed photography […]
On the back of his Space//Form group exhibition last year (covered), Arrested Motion’s Sven Davis is working with Breeze Block Gallery in Portland again on another huge group event entitled Wider than a postcard. With over 200 artists and 400 individual works, this exhibition looks to be both bigger than the previous event and also smaller at the same time as all of the artworks are postcard sized at 6×4 inches. Each artist is either making work on a found / owned postcard and adapting / adding […]
