Betty Cleeland, Luis DeLaTorre, and Kate Ingold are three artists attracted to geometries, rhythyms, repetition, and patterns. Cleeland’s oil paintings on linen resonate with a mathematical precision even as her hand’s work is present in the brush strokes, bringing the viewer’s gaze deep into her masterful pieces. With a dep preoccupation with color, Cleeland demonstrtes how placement and relationship inform deeper readings of abstract work.
DeLaTorre, an artist who moves in and out of abstraction and is comfortable bringing narrative into his work, is concerned with patterns both on and off the canvas. Embedded with wit and keen observation, his work echoes and references contemporary landscapes, both physical and political.
Ingold, too, is concerned with societal patterns as well as aesthetic ones. Working predominantly in photography, she meticulously scratches, tears, and sews into the surface of her photographs, playing with revelation and obscuration, what is seen and what is not.
