Into The Mystic

Nov 18, 2012

Michael Kohn Gallery currently presents Into The Mystic – a group exhibition that focuses on the aesthetic contemplation of mysticism in both contemporary art practice and contemporary practices of looking at art.

Into The Mystic brings to light a certain ‚Grand Theme‘ — an aspect of introspection and perceived reality when looking at works of art that explores the rich inner landscape of one’s consciousness, both sacred and profane. There is a strong strain of mysticism among some Californian artists working during the 1960s and 70s, and their work will be represented by paintings, collage and light sculpture. Similarly, this quality of allusiveness, of poetic touch, can be found in some of the best artists working today like Fred Tomaselli, Vija Celmins and Bill Viola.
