Contemporary Art: The Beauty Of Networks @ Lesley Heller Workspace; New York

(Drivebycuriosity) - Contemporary art has so many faces. Every visit of an art gallery brings so many discoveries. So I enjoyed the current show @ Lesley Heller Workspace in New York´s Lower East Side (54 Orchard Street lesleyheller). The gallery displays new works by Tony Ingrisano.

From the press release (exhibitions): "Ingrisano’s practice draws inspiration from various infrastructure systems, from man-made power grids to naturally occurring river circuits. Each work begins with a single mark, the starting point for what will become an intricate and elaborate, yet extemporaneous configuration of networks that entwine, unravel, and twist around each other, leading everywhere and nowhere simultaneously. Layering ink, graphite, watercolor, and collaged elements, Ingrisano creates cohesive, singular works from a complex series of individual parts, often times cutting the work apart and reconstructing it into an entirely new and dynamic composition".

I like the beauty of these networks and the interplay of colors and shapes. Here you can see my favorites from this show, as usual a very subjective selection.
