Rhombus Space is pleased to present All Worked Up, an exhibition featuring artwork by Eddie Chu, Seren Morey, Courtney Puckett, and Karla Wozniak.
Curated by Katerina Lanfranco

Exhibition Dates: September 12 – October 5, 2014. Reception: Friday, 9/12, 6-9 PM

All Worked Up is an exhibition that focuses on art that is made through successive layers of material application to a support surface, and is characterized by a commitment to process and an investigation of art materials with the results being deeply physical and sensual. Eddie Chu approaches making art like an engineer, exploring ideas of mechanization, intention and accident – his works are both physically layered paintings and the products of a kind of artist- scientist research lab. Seren Morey builds her unearthly and minutely detailed multilayered paintings by intricately combining cutting, sewing, sculptural relief and paint. These works culminate in a delicate interlacing of mediums. Courtney Puckett combines found materials as the armatures for her sculptures that are then wrapped, woven and heavily altered. Her recent fabric paintings are direct developments from her material explorations and the additive approach to her work. Karla Wozniak is a painter’s painter. Using an arsenal of traditional paint handling techniques she combines them with a generous application of oil paint to make chromatic landscapes that often hint at human presence amidst lush nature.

The four artists presented in All Worked Up handle the surfaces of their artwork in a labor intensive, mindful and meditative way. They share a sense of resolve to push the limits of their work - layering rich oil paint strokes side by side to build up a luscious surface (Wozniak), experimenting with paint and sculpture mediums to create shallow reliefs and painting objects (Chu and Morey), and wrapping and sewing layers of fabric and plastic into 2D and 3D works (Puckett). Balancing formal logical and artistic intuition, these four artists make images that are more than just windows into other worlds. Their works have undeniable physical presence in the viewer’s world.
