KASNER EXHIBITION

Los Angeles, January 2004 - BLK/MRKT Gallery presents Every Other Moment, an exhibition of new paintings by Stephen Kasner and the sculpture of Charles Sherman.

"Stephen Kasner's paintings operate in between the worlds of spirit and flesh. Working in a large scale and an earthy palette dominated by black and white, his mainly abstract images move the eye using form, texture and an elusive, vaguely hallucinatory optical dynamism. Despite the subtlety of the symbolic images that do sometimes appear, these paintings are essentially emotional and psychological landscapes.

This is a haunting paradox that motivates the work: it has the force of compelling representation, but that which it represents is ethereal in nature. He believes that symbols and ideas have the power to create balance and harmony between the competing desires of the human mind. The paintings move back and forth between acting as meditative focal points for the viewer and sincere attempts to portray the universal continuum of beauty evident in the cycle of life." -BLK/MRKT

Opening reception Saturday, January 8th, 2005 6-10 p.m. Exhibition runs through February 26th, 2005.
