ULLENS AT ROTHKO ART CENTRE
September 22, 2017 - November 05, 2017
Galerie Blue Square is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of photographic works by Yves Ullens at the Mark Rothko Art Centre in Daugavpils, Latvia. The exhibition opens with a public reception on Friday, September 22, from 4:00 – 7:00 pm and continues through November 5, 2017.
Ullens’ series “Color Meditations” comes from a body of work devoted to explorations of color, abstracted through prisms of light and the artist's camera. The eleven photographs on view relate to the pictorial movement of colors found most succinctly in abstract expressionism, and particularly in the Color Field paintings of Mark Rothko. The abstracted light naturally invites contemplation and meditation, and in this regard, exhibiting the series at the Rothko Art Centre, in the place where Rothko was born, is most appropriate.
