Side to Side, Three Ways, featuring artist Manel Lledós

The artists in Side to Side, Three Ways work abstractly and all three use the repetitive element of horizontal stripes to different effect and meaning. Emily Berger’s gestural strokes are full of energy. Her horizontal stripes are accented with small vertical marks creating a rhythmic sequence with intervals of stillness. Employing a square format Manel Lledós’s edges are contained within the perimeter of the canvas. His use of straight and curved edges and varying size of horizontal bands, breaks up the surface setting up situations that play with a viewer’s perception. Kim Uchiyama’s paintings are inspired by the landscape of ancient Greece and its temples. Horizontal bands of the colors of these landscapes rest in the natural tones of the support, either canvas or linen. Yet, there is ascending movement and a sense of timelessness and space in these works.
