Karen Tepaz, Loose Forms
Thomas Hunter Project Space
930 Lexington Avenue
New York, NY
March 29 – April 20
Thomas Hunter Project Space is pleased to present LOOSE FORMS, a solo exhibition by Karen Tepaz. This exhibition explores the expressive potential of object and the complex spaces that develop when form, texture and color are blended creating a new place between the blurred lines.
Tepaz continues her investigation of form and material while experimenting with the scale and presentation of her work. Tepaz works the balance between surface treatment and color selection and draws correlations from her influences of flowers, language the body and sounds of fluidity. Both the work and the viewer are free to shift and transform perspective at every angle as each form unfolds naturally, creating an environment for mindful contemplation.
