In this series of exhibitions, Melissa Morgan Fine Art presents the newest body of work by highly sought-after painter, Andy Moses. The colorful, abstract works of sculptor, Brad Howe, will be featured along with the intricate, theatrical sculptures of Rondle West and the expressive mixed media works of Michel Tabori. An opening reception was held on Saturday, February 14th.
Now on display at Melissa Morgan Fine Art, Andy Moses’s newest work, Geomorphology 1502, captures the fluid, elemental majesty of nature. The painting’s concave canvas illuminates its pearlescent pigments, causing the work to shift in depth as the viewer travels throughout the gallery space. The work of Andy Moses has been featured in numerous museum exhibitions and institutional collections, including Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard, California, Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art in Malibu, California, and Fondazione Art 1307 in Naples, Italy.
In his new series of abstract sculptures, Brad Howe continues to explore the tradition of geometric abstraction as a living, viable discourse. Sculptural works, such as Strange Heroes, incite a provocative, kinetic poetry – an energy that remains coy, energetic, encouraging both contemplation and play. Brad Howe has exhibited in over sixteen countries worldwide, and his works can be found in numerous public and private collections, including an eighty-foot mobile for the Georgia International Convention Center, a stainless steel sculpture for a corporate client in Bilberach, Germany, as well as numerous pieces for the city of Los Angeles.
A plethora of bold, colorful characters populate the intricate worlds of Rondle West’s series of sculptural assemblages. Known as “mini stage performances,” the works confront the viewer with a cast of pop cultural, historical, and religious figures and objects. Rondle West’s sculptures can be found on exhibition throughout the United States.
Michel Tabori incorporates his cinematic expertise, visual experience, and creative process into his mixed media works. Depicting symmetric transformations of fast moving action, the layered pigments and polymer resin results in a continually shifting optic experience which interacts with its surrounding environment. The works of Michel Tabori have been exhibited throughout the United States and can be found in numerous public and private collections.
