Tim Jag, Jeff Kellar, Emi Ozawa, J P 제피

April 4–May 11

Press Release

Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present four by four, an exploration of geometric abstraction through the diverse perspectives of four contemporary painters. The artists showcase a range of innovative techniques and materials, breaking away from traditional painting norms to redefine the boundaries of artistic expression.

Tim Jag‘s Gravitational Series introduces biomorphic shapes set against expressionistic backgrounds, creating a dynamic interplay between geometric pattern and lush painterly color. Bold and colorful shaped panels by Emi Ozawa feature overlapping circles and offer synergistic optics that convey a sense of movement. Jeff Kellar takes a minimalistic approach by painting linear shapes on clay and resin surfaces, creating compositions with the illusion of depth. J P 제피 stitches together fabric remnants to form colorful constructions displayed between glass. The thready compositions give the impression of hovering off the wall within the confines of the frame, adding an intriguing spatial dimension. Each artist brings their distinctive style and approach to geometric abstraction through the versatility of medium, composition, and shape.

This is the first time the gallery is showing works by Tim Jag (Santa Fe) and J P 제피 (Albuquerque).
