"Gary Szymanski: Tilt"
2004-02-18 until 2004-03-27
Heather Marx Gallery
San Francisco, CA, USA United States of America

Los Angeles painter Gary Szymanski’s second solo exhibition of playful abstractions will be on exhibit February 19 – March 27, 2004 at Heather Marx Gallery in San Francisco. At once mischievous and challenging, Szymanski’s colorful grids are visual feasts that provide the viewer with surprising thrills.

Continuing in the vein of his previous exhibition Patter, Szymanski once again explores color’s effect on visual perception through his signature application of three-color grids. In Tilt, however, Szymanski’s pristine and technical hard-edged grids have given way to vivid stripes, curved bands, and martini-olive inspired shapes. His palette -- seemingly inspired by a box of sweet tarts – utilizes pinks, violets, reds, yellows, blacks, and blues, painted in unconventional threesomes that both play with the eye and offer up reminiscences of childhood playground merriment. The result is a more exuberant and unrestrained approach to the color studies and tonal relationships that make Szymanski’s work so engaging. 

Szymanski’s work has recently been featured in the group shows Drawings and Works on Paper: San Francisco, New York & Los Angeles at the San Luis Obispo Art Center; Flair at Heather Marx Gallery; and Neo Painting at the Young Eun Museum of Contemporary Art in Kwangju-City, Korea. He has also shown extensively throughout Southern California, including the Double Vision and Acuna-Hansen galleries in Los Angeles.

Szymanski’s work has been written about in several diverse publications, including Art in America, the San Francisco Chronicle, the LA Weekly, Artweek, and the Rheinische Post. The artist teaches painting at Los Angeles Trade Technical College.
