My friend Roger Reutimann and I are collaborating on an exhibit opening this October 27 at the Dairy Arts Center here in Boulder. Titled Neo-Cubism: A New Perspective, it features Roger’s sculptures and my paintings.
An examination of perspective, perception, and reality, we both explore Cubist themes in our works in order to get closer to what seminal Cubists called “essential reality.”
One goal of mine is to change the relationship between the viewer and the art and possibly further enliven the experience. You know, once Roger and I stop working on our portraits and figures, creative interpretation passes to the viewer and now the viewer has the capacity to make changes to the exhibit simply by moving around.
Moving around Roger’s sculptures is a visual treat as the shapes morph into unexpected forms. The lines and shapes of his sculptures further intermingle with my compositions. In addition, I use metallic and iridescent paints that change with lighting and point of view causing shifting patterns of light to create an entirely different experience. Witnessing these changes might make these images appear more real to us – more like we actually perceive our surroundings.
