Eric Haze "New Mathematics" at Known Gallery Los AngelesJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 07 Sep 2011
NYC-based artist Eric Haze, featured in Juxtapoz multiple times over the years including our NYC Graffiti issue, will be exhibiting 35 new paintings and 15 new drawings in a new show, New Mathematics, opening at Known Gallery in Los Angeles on September 17, 2011.
Known Gallery notes, "Building on his commitment to the development of more organic personal work, New Mathematics displays a complex relationship between design, gesture and abstraction, incorporating geometric elements both with and without a basis in typography.
"With repetition and the interplay of positive and negative as an underlying theme, New Mathematics reveals the development of a mature signature iconography that epitomizes Haze's fine art work.
"The roots of Haze's history as a graffiti artist can also be felt in the nature of New Mathematics, with both speed and control as determining factors in the end result. Trading in the perfection of the imperfect, the intuitive confidence of stroke and line quality displayed in this new collection offers a celebration of form and gesture over narrative, presenting a fully realized dialectic that is steeped in the majestic flow of his signature hand style."
