Y2K group is pleased to present its first group exhibition in TriBeCa of works by: Lucy Lord Campana, Angela Heisch, Clinton King, James Miller, Bridget Mullen.
These five artists traverse and approach abstraction in new ways of painting either through representation of illusion and space or through optical “special effects”. Lucy Lord Campana has an interest in representing images that may not be easily seen or accessible. Angela Heisch’s work uses detailed pattern, illusion, and optical effects through abstraction but with visual structures within the compositions. Clinton King explores various methods and tools to make a painting with an interest in the tenuous boundaries between the conscious and the unconscious–merging lucid perception with blind process. Bridget Mullen’s work is rooted in formal abstraction but also mixes figuration becoming more "characterized abstraction” where figures also appear through the process of making. James Miller depicts images of photograms, blueprints, x-rays, or abstract fields that appear to look like printed photographs but are actually hand-made paintings
