Marie Lannoo: Spectrum
Newzones Gallery of Contemporary Art, Calgary, AB - To June 23
Formerly a figurative painter, Marie Lannoo here works in the high-modernist traditions of geometric abstraction, pattern painting and Op Art. Her six new large-scale acrylic paintings exist together as a continuum, without any obvious beginning or end. Working with geometric shapes of varying shape, size and chromatic intensity, she immerses viewers in colour and luminosity, expanding the visual experience into the temporal realm and suggesting a coming into being.
