LEO VALLEDOR Color As Space Opening Reception: Tuesday, May 1, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM Public Panel: Monday, May 7, 2018 from 7:00 to 8:00 PM On view through Tuesday, May 8, 2018 Leo Valledor (1936-1989), originally from San Francisco, was a founding member of Park Place Gallery in Lower Manhattan in the 1960s. He explored shaped canvases, reductive color palettes and multi-component canvases to create the illusion of three-dimensional shapes in a two-dimensional picture plane. Color As Space surveys Valledor’s use of color and vector geometry, combined with rectilinear, curvilinear and circular shaped canvases to create “sculptural tension” through painting.
