‘PROJECTIVE PLANES’ Geometric Sculpture and Collage by TOPHER GENT and CONNY GOELZ SCHMITT
ARTIST RECEPTION FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19th from 5:00 – 8:00 PM Also Open Newport Gallery Night 4 - 7 pm On Exhibit October 11 – November 5, 2018
Our featured artists exhibiting in October, Topher Gent and Conny Goelz Schmitt explore multiple levels of planes, fusing color and texture within the two and three-dimensional forms that they construct. There is a clean, pure and mechanical precision in their work and a subtle soft fusion of organic properties. Gent and Goelz Schmitt find themselves pushing the boundaries of their materials, while remaining open to what is communicated back during their ritualistic process. Unexpected shapes and spaces intermingle in both bright colors and earthy shades, equally commanding a powerful physical presence.
‘In mathematics, a projective plane is a geometric structure that extends the concept of a plane. In the ordinary Euclidean plane, two lines typically intersect in a single point, but there are some pairs of lines that do not intersect.’
