Luhring Augustine is pleased to present a selection of works by Glenn Ligon, Jason Moran, Richard Rezac, and Zarina.
Both politically provocative and formally rigorous, Glenn Ligon’s work explores issues of history, language, and identity. The selection of works featured in this presentation highlight the artist’s hallmark use of text. Composer and musician Jason Moran considers modes of expression in his practice, often complicating the relationship between music and language. Evoking automatic drawings and gestural abstraction, the four new Moran works on paper on view beautifully interweave process, performance, and materiality.
Richard Rezac’s abstract sculptures are rooted in a studious consideration of the history of art, architecture, and design. Crafted with materials ranging from painted cast bronze, wood, aluminum, and cotton, Rezac’s exceptionally precise works toggle between congruence and dissonance, space and form, lightness and solidity. Zarina’s work is influenced by an interest in mathematics and architecture, reflected in her use of geometry and her emphasis on structural purity. While her work has a minimalist aesthetic, its starkness is tempered by its texture and materiality.
