Peter Barrett: Ergo Gnomic
Sept. 12, 2009 - Oct. 3, 2009
Opening reception Sept. 12, 2009, 7 p.m. - 10 p.m.
Peter Barrett's wall installations and painted sculptures combine the influences of Op and Minimalism. The works explore a territory between several different opposites, both high and low: sacred geometry and pop-culture psychedelia, organic and geometric patterns in nature, Tantric art and computer "art." Barrett has an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. He has had solo shows in New York, Miami, Chicago, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Toronto. His work has been discussed in articles published in the Boston Phoenix, The Kansas City Star, Art in America, Miami Herald, Zing Magazine, and NY Arts, among others.
