January 11 – February 15, 2020
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 11, 5:30-8:00pm.
Galleri Urbane is pleased to host the third solo exhibition by gallery artist Rachel Hellmann. Titled Cross Fold, the show features a new series of Hellmann’s trademark shaped wood paintings alongside vibrantly colored works on paper. Through these two complementary bodies of work, the artist explores the tension generated from discrepancies between perceived and actual space. The conversation between real and illusionistic space runs throughout the work in Cross Fold. The grey areas formed ultimately call for interaction with the work of art, encouraging inspection from all angles. This movement becomes an essential aspect of the artwork, connecting the object and viewer in a direct way.
