MARCIA WOOD 'AUGUST GEOMETRY'

Caitlin Zelinsky

August Geometry, a group show curated by gallery owner Marcia Wood, is on view till September 5, 2015 at their Atlanta midtown location. A.G. is breaking down the basic fundamentals (think color, line, perspective) in this quirky end of summer exhibition. With beautiful designs by the inventive intellects of Scott Eakin, Clark Derbes, and Justin Rabideau, this particular exhibit is in visual rhapsody overload - in an exciting, caffeinated kind of way. Putting these energetic artworks next to the extremely gratifying and audacious Gundrun Mertes-Frady, (A German artist currently living in New York with an extensive CV including 15 solo shows worldwide. She paints oil and reflective pigments on linen in bold geometric patterns. Warning: if you're not already acquainted with her and her designs, this is a head over heals kind of love affair, so be ready. View more of her works + a personal conversation with the artist at geoform.net) the response is explosive. I can't leave out the very talented Joanne Mattera, another New York Abstractionist in August Geometry, defining herself as a 'lush minimalist'. Whether its concerning deconstructionism, architectural abstraction, or just plain ol' color fields, August Geometry tackles the limitless potential of surface and form.
