Leo did it (Da Vinci, that is). Copernicus was all over it. Numbers. Underpinning an elegant expression of art and the foundation of life itself. You may not know it but you sense it. It’s intuitive. Like the magic and mystery of the Mona Lisa smile. Witness it all in the wondrous canvases of artist Michael Maas. SpaceOnSpurgeon hosts a reception on Saturday, May 7 from 7-9pm, exhibiting the intriguing and mesmerizing mixture of color, shape, and dimension that is Michael Maas’s art.
Formations suggest exotic places and times. Are you in Spain or have you just stepped into a parallel universe? Other pieces suggest intimate form and relationship as in his series Alhambra: Mother and Child. Logic and emotion at play. It teases. With geometric puzzles and expressions, you may not know the underlying mathematical logic but you respond. It’s an invitation to step inside. Please join us as we present the magical and mysterious universe of Michael Maas, whose works have been exhibited throughout Southern California and private collections around the world.
Angle/Art. Perspective/Perception. You do the math.
The Dance series by Canadian artist Patti DiDiomete, featuring figurative canvases of exuberant whimsy; Surface Juxtaposition: the fun and provocative art of San Clemente artist Steve Hopper; jewelry designs by Cheryl Douglass Hopper; and the “street-life” photography of JoAnne Artman.
