Artist Talk: 4 August 2016, 5pm
An exhibition of new works by Gabriel Orozco is presented by the Aspen Art Museum (AAM). The exhibition features a series of 10 paintings exploring Orozco’ interest in cyclical patterns found in nature.
Although geometric shapes and circular motifs have been present in Orozco’s painting for decades, this new body of work points to the influence of the artist’s time living in Japan, incorporating new and diverse media including gold leaf, a medium traditionally employed by ancient Japanese printmakers and artists. Orozco’s return to the use of the colour green after almost 20 years is also significant, recalling the importance the artist places upon nature within an increasingly urbanised world.
The artist will give a public talk introducing the exhibition on 4 August 2016. Admission is free. View details here.
