HEX Presents Chris Lux + Augustus Thompson At New Image Art Gallery

August 02, 2012

New Image Art, Los Angeles in conjunction with HEX is pleased to announce the first joint exhibition of work by Chris Lux and Augustus Thompson. In this show, the artists celebrate their shared affinity for Modern art as the jumping off place for contemporary painting, sculpture, and constructions. In new work, Chris Lux makes playful use of intent and influence, pushing his visual narratives to become objects which reference historical painting and sculpture. Decoration, ceramics, lighting, and resin engage more formal works on paper and canvas to create self-contained installations. The varieties and application of materials update Lux's two-dimensional work and create, he says, "a time where all bits of culture, from modern to prehistoric, wait at the same bus stop." Augustus Thompson continues his work in watercolor with a series of portrait studies based on the figure awash in Aristide Maillol's, The River (1938-43). Each portrait creates a different fraction of time in the eternal, anguished movement of the Maillol sculpture. Constructions in plaster, canvas, and black plastic finish the series and flow from the original watercolor blocks to anchor the artifacts spatially within a river-like continuum. Thompson has shown previously at New Image Art, and the works of both artists have been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe. For further info head here.
