Pentimenti Gallery welcomes the spring season with a solo exhibition by EDGAR DIEHL.
Edgar Diehl explores the boundaries of visual abstraction by using aluminum to create geometrically composed paintings. The aluminum is bent or contorted with emphasis on pattern and a radiating color palette, carefully chosen for its optical qualities. The work creates an intimate experience with a visually intriguing puzzle. When the viewer engages in this puzzle, it can evoke a sudden wonder for color, light, space, and the unquestionable nature of visual possibility.
Edgar’s work can be described as wall sculptures, reliefs, objects, or paintings. As such, they are conversational and versatile, striving to break the boundaries of particular groups or movements throughout the history of painting.
