Description


In his twelfth solo show at the Feldman Gallery, Edwin Schlossberg will exhibit a series of new paintings that combine stenciled text and abstract images on aluminum panels. In Beneath Suddenly, Schlossberg investigates patterns of perception by refracting the visual field with reflective surfaces created from Scotchlite and dust of lapis lazuli, ruby, and silver. The twenty-one paintings are similar in format: monochromatic space is activated by geometric shapes, patterns, and color which combine with fragments of thoughts that suggest different narrative lines and converging paths. Each panel is lit by a free-standing photographer’s lamp. The series is informed by the intersection of forces found in nature: the need to describe, conceptualize, and symbolically communicate the consequences and intricacies of all the astonishing phenomena that one can imagine - beneath the surface.
