Taggart Times 7, curated by Director of Contemporary Art Paul Efstathiou, features work by seven gallery artists who share distinct but complementary approaches to form and color. William Buchina works from a variety of found source materials to create paintings of dystopian narrative scenes with a collage-like aesthetic. Leah Guadagnoli’s sculptural painting brings together influences of architecture, graphic design, natural forms, and hard-edged geometric imagery into whimsical and provocative constructions. André Hemer combines digital and traditional processes to explore the relationship between the traditional paint medium and a scanned image. Kenichi Hoshine’s enigmatic paintings play with the line between abstraction and figuration, drawing inspiration from a variety of sources including film, television, theater sets, and the activities of daily life. John Knuth uses untraditional processes and materials, such as fly regurgitation, to create shimmering compositions that evoke landscape or color field painting. Dana James’s iridescent multi-panel paintings employ encaustic and staining techniques to generate the magical effects of light across suburban and natural landscapes. A New York School painter, Knox Martin’s works combine elements of abstract expressionism, pop art, and color-field painting, with an emphasis on the female form.
