Brian Gross Fine Art is pleased to announce its debut exhibition of Santa Fe artist, Mokha Laget, opening January 5, 2019, with a reception from 4-6pm and artist talk at 4:30pm.  Spatial Chromatics features recent paintings that explore the interplay between geometric color abstraction and perceptual space.  The exhibition will be on view through February 16, 2019.

 

Optically charged and vibrantly hued, Mokha Laget combines irregularly shaped canvases, geometric abstraction, and saturated color to create dynamic compositions.  Formed by the layering of multiple geometric shapes, Laget uses their intersections as borders for her large areas of deep color.  Some produce striking changes of tone, while others have more subtle shifts, as if one form is a transparent overlay of another.  Diagonal lines are an important element in Laget’s division of the surface, their intersections and juxtapositions creating dynamic visual movement.  As the internal geometry and the outer structure of the composition combine and create visual depth, they result in “spatial riddles” that defy logic and challenge the viewer.

 

Mokha Laget grew up in Algeria and France, and went to university in both Europe and the United States.  She studied fine arts at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC and later worked as a studio assistance to painter Gene Davis, a major figure in the Washington Color School.  Laget’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, and can be found in the collections of the Museum of Geometric and Madi Art, Dallas, TX; the Ulrich Museum of Art, Wichita State University, KS; Art in Embassies; The Artery Collection, Washington, DC; and the National Institutes of Health, as well as many private collections worldwide.
