Press Release

Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Nameless Mountain, a solo exhibition of constructed landscape paintings by Beau Carey. In the project room, the gallery features Edges, a selection of visionary landscape paintings by Adam Sorensen.

Nameless Mountain features nine new paintings by Beau Carey based on repetition and memory.  The artist mirrors, inverts and layers the same mountain peak repeatedly to produce patterned compositions in his signature style. This repetition is inspired by the Kasina visual meditation practice, in which one focuses on the remembrance of a singular image – in this case a snow capped mountain peak that Carey saw briefly years ago while on residency in Norway.  Memory evokes the concept of time which is further represented by the depiction of day and night within a singular composition. Nameless Mountain also includes three paintings of a singular moon that are inspired by the same practice.

Beau Carey paints extensively in remote places such as the Arctic Circle in Norway, Michigan, Maine, and Alaska and incorporates these experiences into his studio work. His work has been featured in the Denver Post, Hyperallergic, Artsy, artnet, Sotheby’s online, and New American Paintings. The artist currently lives and works in Albuquerque, NM.

In the project room the gallery presents Adam Sorensen Edges, a selection of five new fictional landscape paintings. Sorensen paints colorful otherworldly mountain scenes inspired by Japanese woodcuts, the Hudson River School, and painters of the American West. This is the first time the gallery is showing work by this artist. Sorensen’s work can be found in collections such as the Portland Art Museum, Boise Art Museum, and Meta Platforms. His work has been written about in Visual Art Source, Juxtapoz, The Huffington Post, and more. Sorensen lives and works in Portland, OR.
