Spatial Planes included a selection of artists whose print-based work plays with the visual and conceptual representation of space. In addition to the abstract and often geometric imagery activating multiple planes and pulling the viewer into contemplative space, the works were new statements on perception, an ongoing discourse of artists and theorists.
The artist’s representation of dimensional space has evolved over centuries and styles, shifting from an accurate representation of the physical world to abstracting it, to conceptualizing it. A question presented in this exhibition was how does function inform emotional and psychological perceptions? How do abstract ideas, emotions, and desires affect perception? Might they inform not only how things see, but permeate and transform the physical world?
