Standpoint and Rod Barton are delighted to collaborate in presenting Planatacia x Abstractica, works by Daniel Pasteiner and James Ryan - two impressive young artists working on the boundaries of formalism and invention.
James Ryan's abstract compositions populate the first âhemisphere' in a traditional white walled format. Referencing the methodology of Joseph Albers âextended possibilities through imposed limitations', Ryan creates deceptively painterly optical explorations of modern architectural space.
In the esoteric mechanical-light assemblages of Daniel Pasteiner, which occupy the rear half of the gallery, this flux expands to threaten the rational. His backlit translucent collage/paintings and interlocking vegetable sculptures still retain elements of formal rigour, but conjure associations of DIY science-fiction film and arcane mysticism.
