Image detail: Andrew Masullo, 5296, 2011 – 2012

Pazo Fine Art presents Geometrix: Encoded Abstraction, a vibrant, energetic exhibition featuring paintings, drawings, and sculptures by Don Dudley, Jean Jinho Kim, Andrew Masullo, Harvey Quaytman, David Simpson, Li Trincere, Don Voisine, Neil Williams, and Norman Zammitt. Derived from the formalist traditions of geometric abstraction and hard-edge techniques, this diverse assembly of artists coheres around a joint venture to instill a sense of logical order and beauty within abstraction, predominantly through a reverence for the pure, foundational aspects of painting. It is on view through March 16; 1932 9th Street NW, #C102, (Enter from 9 1/2 Street), Washington, D.C.

 

Enjoy the weekend!
