New Image Art is pleased to present, Black & White, a group show by Tofer Chin, Misha Hollenbach and Brett Cody Rogers, opening Saturday, April 6th, 2013, 7pm-10pm. An exhibition featuring three artists that embrace the absence of color to celebrate shapes, forms, and the repetition of geometric patterns in order to reinvent abstraction.

About the artists-

Tofer Chin is an investigator into and an instigator of altered mental states. Chin uses the repetition of pattern as if they were bricks or tiles resulting in abstract landscapes. The geometric constructions of Chin’s sculpture, paintings and photographs are based on mathematical calculations, with titles based on the sum of its constituent parts: number, color and form. Although each work adheres to a formulaic geometric expression, it is a jump-off into a psychological space within the viewer. A native of Los Angeles, Tofer Chin was born in 1979 and graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in LA.

Misha Hollenbach’s practice explores methods of merging contemporary culture with tribal inspired concepts. Working across the mediums of collage, screenprinting, sculpture and installation, his work is often driven by carnal desire, and a return to the basics/basis of human existence:  Gesturing towards the legacy of Dadaism, Hollenbach is compelled to collect and make images and objects, reconfiguring them as art objects to create new meanings through association. More recently his work has been concerned with the direct channeling of energy, explored and investigated through ‘action’ both painting, mark making and sculpture.

Brett Cody Rogers will be showcasing silver gelatin prints presented in polished aluminum frames. The photographs are juxtapositions of Roger’s paintings that serve as the background and Roger’s grandfathers’ sculptures that serve as the models. These two elements are then held against a reflective surface creating new dimensions.
