UPCOMING: Geometric Abstractions, work by Leo Krikorian.|0| Krikorian is an important but relatively undiscovered painter of the post-war abstract movements who studied with Ansel Adams, Josef Albers and Clifford Stills. Krikorian's work pays careful attention to color relationships, producing sophisticated visual compositions that are dazzling and often times unorthodox. The abstract forms within his work combine to simulate isometric perspective, positioning the picture plane somewhere between the second and third dimensions. AND: Events, presents work by Todd Chilton, a contemporary artist whose painting is related to the geometric abstraction of Krikorian.|1| While acknowledging the failure of High Modernism's search for ultimate Truth, his paint quality is decisively imperfect with shapes that don't quite line up.
