Jason Rohlf: Transfer. 36×73

Seven contemporary painters and sculptors use color and abstraction to define space and structure.  Artists include Tom Berenz, Derrick Buisch, Ben Grant, Mark Ottens, Jeremy Popelka, Jason Rohlf and Richard Taylor.

  • The paintings of Tom Berenz blur the lines between realism and abstraction and imaginatively discuss ideological issues
  • Derrick Buisch’s decades long practice of maintaining sketchbooks with ideograms of ordinary objects has resulted in distinct images of graphic motifs with surface tension
  • Ben Grant forms a visual syntax with strings of information in the shape of color and pattern to build complex relationships within his paintings
  • Mark Ottens finds new ways to express the outer limits of color and depth in his highly intricate, many layered, intimately sized paintings
  • Jeremy Popelka blows vibrant, contemporary forms in glass using the ancient technique of Murrini
  • Jason Rohlf incorporates elements of collage and drawing embedded in layers of paint and varnish in his rhythmic paintings
  • Richard Taylor’s dynamically painted aluminum three dimensional sculptures integrate ideas of poetry and jazz
