Description: Trestle Gallery is pleased to announce upcoming exhibition, Echo Spectrum. This group show, co- curated by artists Mel Prest and Kirk Stoller, focuses on nine artists who share a common visual dialect through various media. Each artist explores fragile geometric structures that simultaneously seem to build-up and fall apart. This aesthetic is revealed through painting, sculpture, and mixed media works that appear to share a sympathetic vision and artistic search. A primary focus of these resonating artistic practices is the unexpected ways that the picture plane is addressed, and how compositional structures defy pictorial conventions. In three-dimensional form, the sculptures in this exhibition embody the process of their assembly, thereby showing both the qualities of expansion, and deconstruction. By utilizing the objective qualities of color, form, movement, pattern, and repetition, the artwork featured in Echo Spectrum transcends age, culture, gender, place, and other isolating factors.
