Praxis International Art is pleased to present Colorforms, a group exhibition by Louis Cameron, Michelle Carollo, Gisela Insuaste, Doreen McCarthy, Freddy Rodríguez, Ines Raiteri, Julio Suárez and Marela Zacarias. This exhibition gathers the work of eight artists; all at various stages of their careers that have retained a commitment to abstraction, particularly in terms of the intersection of color, form, and medium. Works presented in the show are products of their cultural environment.Colorforms will open on March 19 and will run through May 7, 2011.
Despite their abstract nature, they make reference to actuality, to the context in which they are created, and use a variety of materials to underscore these connections. The intent of the works is often multiple, emphasizing the connections between what is real and the visual experience of the viewer. These artists approach the solid forms of geometry, the patterning of abstraction and the meaning of lines in diverse mediums, such as plastic, vinyl, nylon, wood, cardboard, paper, foam core, Plexiglass, acrylic paint, photography and video. The rich and sensual application of line, color and form marks these works as contemporary objects that draw from a long tradition of geometric and abstract work and often evoke the influence of the urban environment.
