Mokha Laget In Her First Solo Exhibition with David Richard Gallery Presents New Shaped and Colorful Stained Canvases That Create Illusions of Three-Dimensional Structures Floating In Space  

David Richard Gallery is pleased to announce representation of international artist, Mokha Laget and present her first solo exhibition with the gallery, In Shape, In Color. In this current body of work, Laget pushes the interaction of color combined with shaped compositions to create the illusion of three-dimensional space. She utilizes Hans Hofmann's "push and pull” color theory and Josef Albers’ teachings on "color interactions". However, Laget then pushes it further by incorporating the extremes of color juxtapositions explored by Op Artists, such as Julian Stanczak and Richard Anuszkiewicz, to create vibrational qualities to excite the eye and add a highly retinal experience, while also leveraging the interplay of color value shifts and shaped canvases from Downing and Reed of the Washington Color School to create the sense of volume. This series of paintings is fresh and exciting with novel compositions and illusory effects that create a tension between the two-dimensional picture plane and three-dimensional space. 

In Shape, In Color will be presented September 9 through October 7, 2017 with an opening reception with the artist Saturday, September 9 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM at David Richard Gallery at 1570 Pacheco Street, Suite A1, Santa Fe, NM 87505, phone: (505) 983-9555. A digital catalogue will be available online with essays by William Peterson, Art Historian and critic, Founder of ArtSpace magazine, former Associate Editor of Museum Editions at the Getty Museum and Nancy Zastudil, Owner/Director of Central Features Contemporary Art and Administrative Director of the Frederick Hammersley Foundation.
