“I like nature but not its substitutes.”   - Hans Arp

Colorful works by Allie Rex, Mary Anne Arntzen and Nathan Green playfully question form and meaning through abstraction. These exuberant paintings and installations revel in issues of visual perception creating a game of forms that is as fun to traverse as it must have been to make. Rex, Arntzen and Green are emerging artists working in related ways yet in diverse places, namely New York, Baltimore and Dallas/Fort Worth. The similarities in their artwork suggest that there is a language of contemporary abstraction that extends beyond specific locales.

Nathan Green Artist Lecture: Thursday, February 6, 5 p.m. Fulton Hall 111
