This group exhibition highlights works from three abstract artists, all of whom bring a similar fluid, lifelike quality to their pieces. In Denverite Michael Clapper’s sculptures of simple shapes, strong, rigid materials have a bending, moving tension, which pairs well with the shadowy strokes of New York artist Ryan Magyar’s oil paintings and Kansas native Dennis Lee Mitchell’s ethereal smoke drawings. Some of the artists’ techniques rely heavily on chance: Magyar uses a homemade squeegee-like tool to scrape paint across the canvas while Mitchell uses a blowtorch to manipulate smoke onto paper, resulting in images that he can’t always control.
