Gallery 414 presents Enharmonic Equivalents: Three Abstractions of Tradition, a group exhibition featuring the works of three local artists: Jacky Ajchareepon, Peter Hiatt and Lee Albert Hill. Enharmonic Equivalents: Three Abstractions of Tradition opens Saturday, October 11th with a reception for the artists from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.
“Enharmonic Equivalents” refers to two or more musical notes that are identical in pitch, yet are named differently and serve different roles in chord progressions. The works by the artists in this exhibition vary greatly in their aesthetic approach, but share the goal of reinterpreting traditional art and design forms.
Jacky Ajchareepon paints landscapes in a deliberately minimalist manner, summoning the images from the bottom of her mind. She describes her method in this way: “My hand decides the form and color — expressions of my inner mind.”
Peter Hiatt makes photographs that reference the artificiality of the medium, while reflecting on our interaction with the world through the digital images we create.
Lee Albert Hill’s works explore the results of chance interactions of the canvas with natural elements. These pieces disclose a leaning to the architectural, in their structure and simple lines. They revel in the dissimilar, with chaotic scratches, marks and splotches breaking through the hard-edged shapes, testing the tension between the man-made and the natural.
