Blurb from the Beardsmore Gallery:
"This is our first visiting show from the Howard Scott Gallery in New York. We are delighted to be exhibiting a selection of work from David Goerk, Francisco Castro Lenero and Steve Riedell.
David Goerk uses wood, enamel, gesso and encaustic to make small wall-sited constructions. The strong colours and carefully articulated shapes have a physical presence far outweighing their size.
Francisco Castro Lenero’s canvases interweave deep reds, mustard yellows and earth colours with black and altered whites within a shifted geometric structure. His work is in the Museum of Modern Art & The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the National Institute of Fine Arts and the University Museum of Arts & Sciences in his native Mexico.
Steve Riedell develops an oil and beeswax surface on flat canvas which is then cut and applied/folded over a geometric wooden armature. Traces of the making remain visible and provide an entry point into the work’s anatomy."
