Altered States

Jose Alvarez, Yayoi Kusama, Fred Tomaselli and Leo Villareal

2nd April - 17th July 2011

Through the unapologetically beautiful collages, paintings and light installations by a select group of artists including Jose Alvarez, Yayoi Kusama, Fred Tomaselli and Leo Villareal, this exhibition will challenge the viewer’s perceptions of reality and the ability of art to create an altered and transformative experience. The work in this exhibition will be especially tempting to the eye, from the glistening and colorful collages of Alvarez and the obsessively painted ―Infinity Nets of Kusama, to the incredibly detailed paintings of Tomaselli and the evolving passages of both brilliant and subtle color and light in the work of Villareal. Seduced by the beauty of materials, the power of beliefs and the physical and psychological experiences that originate from making art, the diverse works of these artists encourages – even demands – the viewers’ participation and reflection that exceeds the typical comprehension of physical materials.
