Featuring: Andrew Chalfen
Chalfen’s work shows a sheer joy in precise, dense pattern-making. The viewer may not know what to focus on first, becoming overwhelmed and subsequently absorbed in the details, is akin to the experience of mediation or a divine/psychedelic experience. More recent abstract geometric pieces, including painted sculptures, explore themes of nostalgia, climate change, play, topography, allusions to scientific data and musical expression and notation, and deconstructions reflective of, and perhaps counter to, accelerating social and psychic instability in the world.
Andrew Chalfen’s solo exhibition at the Abington Art Center will be in the Book Room Gallery.
He will have a joint artist talk with Giulia Livi on March 13, from 10 am – 12 pm. Link coming soon.
