Date & Venue Date : February 2 - February 22, 2012 Opening Reception: February 2, 2012 at 6:00-8:00pm Chelsea, New York
The exhibition shows the work by Moon Lee and Steve Hickok. Their paintings engage nature and landscapes that evolve within their different approaches. Moon Lee is inspired by nature and works with densely rich colors to create emotionally ridden representations of nature scenes. Her work is not a mere still-life or landscape, but rather a transcendent piece flourishing on her textural blend of colors. She sees her paintings as an ideal method to communicate with the outside world,especially when there are simply not enough words to express her thoughts and emotions.
Steve Hickok’s newest series of “The Earth” has a strong biomorphic feel with its artistic designs and naturally occurring patterns reminiscent of nature. Hickok takes it one step further as the elements themselves help create the art. Sculptural geometric squares with natural paint drips and spontaneously overlapping colors show an energetic and buoyant spirit as he contemplates the raw scenery of his environment.
