Finishing Concepts is proud to present SPACIAL/RECOGNITION, the inaugural exhibit in the gallery space at their workshop. We invite the community to come experience the newly renovated space. The opening reception will be held on August 26th beginning at 1pm and is free to the public. SPACIAL/RECOGNITION was collectively curated by Julian Lombardi, Stephanie Sherwood and Surge Wintron. “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” -Winston Churchill For the first exhibit in the new gallery space at Finishing Concepts in Monterey Park, each artwork directly responds to the architecture. SPACIAL/RECOGNITION focuses on the exploration of non-traditional spaces. Each piece addresses this concept in an exploratory fashion, whether it is by challenging the traditional constraints of the rectangle, inhabiting three-dimensional space, or presenting the exploration of inner space in a profound manner. Many artists have expressed how changes to their studio space can directly affect the outcome of their work, sometimes architecture can direct us in unseen ways. SPACIAL/RECOGNITION contains pieces which touch and play with the space around them; they cut; they mimic; they assert.
