Please join me and artist Aaron Wexler as we celebrate the opening of his show at the 527 Madison Avenue Lobby Gallery from May 16 – August 24, 2018.
Aaron Wexler creates collages of great visual complexity using a variety of sources. While much of his work is made from paper that he has himself painted and cut into shapes, the artist also uses commercially printed patterns,images from books, photographs and a wide range of other material in his collages. Wexler’s shapes are arrangedon a sophisticated internal structure that calls to mind systems of organization used in typography. Mixing hard edges and painterly areas with intertwined lines, Wexler arrives at works that resonate on many levels.
Located at 54th Street and Madison Avenue, the show is open to the public 9 AM – 5 PM, Monday through Friday. The reception will be held in the lobby from 5 PM - 7 PM at 527 Madison Avenue.
This will be the thirteenth exhibition in 527 Madison’s ongoing program showcasing noteworthy emerging and mid-career artists.
