Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present INTERFERENCE, a solo exhibition by Dallas-based artist Rachel Strum. The exhibition will be Strum's inaugural solo presentation at Hashimoto Contemporary and her debut solo exhibition in New York City.
INTERFERENCE showcases abstract paintings and sculptures that transcend the limitations of time and space. With the interplay of materiality through oscillating depths of color and substrates, organic and geometric forms commingle within flat and luminous layered and glittering surfaces in this new body of work. The forms mesh and collide simultaneously using a high-key color palette within and outside the confines of the picture plane. This striking juxtaposition creates tension and harmony between the natural and artificial, the familiar and the unknown.
Beyond dynamic compositions and punchy color combinations, there is also a softness from stretches of velvety-matte surfaces. The works feel boundless; how deep and far back in space do they extend? Are these cropped snippets from larger expanses? And although informed by more traditional formalist and hard-edge abstraction, the work extends beyond the two-dimensional surface and expands beyond it.
Brightly colored sculptures are displayed alongside the paintings. Using sculpture as a tool to explore space and time, pigmented resin poured in layers forms an object that emanates a glow from light passing through and reflecting. The layering requires the viewer to move around the work to capture the entirety of what is available to perceive.
