David Richard Gallery is pleased to present, Polychrome Polygons, an exhibition of new paintings on shaped-canvases by Mokha Laget and her second solo exhibition with the gallery. These paintings continue to push the boundaries of visual perception, tempting the viewer into the possibility that a third-dimensionality or monumentality exists. The use of saturated flat colors on overlapping planes of extreme and perspectival shapes combined with correlative shifts of the outer perimeters disrupts the traditional notion of geometric painting. The internal tension and discordant compositions create the illusion of space, depth and volume and thus, actively challenge the viewer’s experience. Laget furthers her mastery of blending formal concerns through thoughtful color adjacency and an intuitive sense of spatial geometry on a two-dimensional picture plane. The opening and Artist Reception will be on Wednesday, June 12 from 5 to 8 pm on the Second-Floor exhibition space at 211 East 121 ST, New York, NY 10035.
