As usual, there’s always something cool going on in the Duke City. If you weren’t able to make it to the October 1 opening reception of “Duality”: Contemporary Works by George C de Baca and Ed Brandt at Albuquerque’s KiMo Theatre Art Gallery, you should definitely check it out! Of particular interest is the minimalist work of Ed Brandt.
Brandt easily jumps between mediums, following the creative flow that guides him. The collection of his works at the KiMo include "white" minimal paintings and "reconstructed" Polaroids, which are created utilizing Polaroid 600 instant film cameras the span the generations, from the original 1970s SX-70 to the ‘80s, ‘90s and beyond.
A “play on minimalism, geometry and texture,” the artist considers his creative process a visceral one. Upon first observation, the spectator may find Brandt's finished artwork minimal in appearance, but time spent with them yields the discovery that they possess geometry and texture that expose a deeper process.
You can discover Brandt and de Baca's work through November 7 at the KiMo Theatre. For more information on the exhibit click here! To read more about Ed’s work, visit www.brandtdesignstudio.com.
