Laura Rathe Fine Art to Present a Group Show Exploring the Power of Color, Kame Hame, δημοσίευση στο Widewalls [15/11/2022]Marilena Pateraki
Throughout his career, Wassily Kandinsky has pushed the conventional boundaries of color, driven by the belief that “color is a power which directly influences the soul.” For example, the artist saw black as a symbol of the silence of death, and blue possessed the potential to awaken spiritual aspirations. With great deliberation, he weighed the pros and cons of colors long before putting them on canvas, for their combinations were equally important.
Laura Rathe Fine Art’s last exhibition of the year will celebrate Kandinsky’s color principle. The group show entitled CHROMA will present works by artists Matt Devine, Gian Garofalo, and Katherine Houston. All three artists share the same aspiration of pushing the bounds of color, each in their own unique way.

Matt Devine is a self-taught American artist who creates works that are a study in contrast. Sculptures of simple forms made from steel, aluminum, and bronze, give an impression of being as light as paper. Each piece of harmonious pattern focuses on a single color as it strives to contain the chaos and expel the discord of an information-saturated culture. Every aspect of making one of his pieces, even welding, is, for Devine, a refuge from cultural noise. His freestanding and wall-mounted sculptures, seamlessly welded together, reshape how we view the color.
