Bruce Beasley, born in Los Angeles 1939

Bruce Beasley, ranks among the most influential modernist sculptors of the post -World War II generation of abstract sculptors. Today, Beasley is recognized as one of the most noteworthy and innovative sculptors on the American West Coast. His work can be found in the permanent collection of 40 art museums around the world, including: Museum of Modern Art in New York City; the Guggenheim Museum, New York City; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the National Art Museum of China in Beijing; the Musee National d’Art Moderne-Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris; and the Smithsonian Museum of American Art in Washington, DC.

In the sculpture on view Torqueri VI, 2018, he uses highly powerful computer CAD technology in the design of his work made of hand fabricated stainless steel. Here Beasley pushes the technology further, exploring sophisticated twisting and curvature never before achieved with such a ridged material.

Ricardo Mazal, born in Mexico City 1950

Ricardo Mazal is one of the most exciting and innovative painters to emerge from Mexico since Rufino Tamayo. Mazal derives his subjects from pilgrimages to various areas of the world which he documents photographically. He then uploads the photographic imagery into a computer and manipulates it into a series of digital studies which he then collages together to create geometric abstract paintings on canvas.

Gary Komarin, American born in New York City 1950.

Gary Komarin was a stand-out student of Philip Guston at Boston University when Guston was shocking the world by breaking the picture plane of his abstract paintings with drawn political cartoon over an abstract field. Komarin continued to mine this approach by staining his canvases with a mixture of watered down latex paint to create complex color fields upon which he draws iconographic imagery of cakes, French wigs and vessels. Komarin also concentrates on the icons alone with a series of gouache works on paper such as his playful series of stacked cakes painted on linked grocery bags.
