My artist friend Samantha Holmes showed work from a new series, Geometric Applications, installations of hand cut paper that trace the distorted geometries created by projecting perfect quasicrystalline patterns onto the objects of everyday life. A pattern found in both the mystic ornament of Medieval Islam and the molecular structures of particle physics, the tiling represents the notion of an underlying order – be it spiritual or scientific – rendered illegible by the disorder of modern life.
The exhibition also features work by New York based artists and fellows of the Bronx Museum AIM program Anna Ablogina, Hannes Bend, Patricia Dominguez, Glenn Fischer, Shanti Grumbine, Nicholas Hamilton, Maria Hupfield, Tatiana Istomina, Tasha Lewis, Eleen Lin, Sharon Ma, Julie Nymann, Gamaliel Rodriguez, Sarah Rowe, Catherine Telford-Keogh, David Gregory Wallace, Margaret Inga Wiatrowski, Didier William and Brian Zegeer.
