‘As Above, So Below’

On Saturday at 6 p.m., New York Open Center will host the opening reception of an art exhibit titled “As Above, So Below,” featuring works by four artists conveying their conceptual interpretations of geometry. This is related to a lecture series NYOC will present next month titled “Sacred, Symbolic, and Creative Geometry.”

From the publicity:


Sharon Ligorner, Karl Lorenzen, Luisa Sartori and Kenneth W. Walker

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 26, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Exhibition Run: January 26 to February 23

Free and open to the public.

Join us on Saturday, January 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. for the group art opening reception of As Above, So Below. Each artist explores, through their artwork, the mathematical and geometric constants that are woven into the very fabric of all life with the recognition that this order provides an interface between the visible and the invisible world.

Strongly influenced by nature’s patterns and geometry, Sharon Ligorner allows the process of change; building up, burying, and scraping away, to inform her paintings.

Sharon Ligorner, Watersign #24, oil and silkscreen on glass, 1995, 8x14.

Karl Lorenzen’s body of work utilizes the Flower of Life motif to illustrate the vocabulary and alphabet of Sacred Geometry.

Luisa Sartori, Untitled 1, graphite and oil on prepared paper, 2010, 14x17.

Luisa Sartori’s collection of drawings and paintings reflect the artist’s fascination with the construction process of decorative patterns that ultimately opens the way for more complex patterns and forms to emerge.

Kenneth W. Walker’s paintings revolve around the nature of monumentality. Employing the triangular form, he creates visually oscillating structures that refer to domestic interiors, architecture and spirituality.

As Above, So Below is curated by Lola C. Shepard.
