AG Gallery in Williamsburg is pleased to present a group exhibition, “CLUSTER,” by emerging artists Alexis Duque, Peter Janssen and Martha Nilsson Edelheit. The exhibition will show various ways to portray the relationship between space and object.

Alexis Duque, born in Colombia in 1971, lives and works as a painter in New York. His paintings incorporate very few colors and are based upon the ancient Greek and Roman architectural features of cluster. Notwithstanding the use of acrylic paint, he makes the influence of illustration apparent by attending to the entire canvas. To put it succinctly, Duque leaves nothing to chance.

Peter Janssen, born in Amsterdam in 1951, is known for his high-concept ideas and presentations. Janssen sways between two and three dimension and visualizes order in a chaotic world. His work consists of mainly low-edition print and combinations of paper and canvas.

Martha Nilsson Edelheit was born in New York City. In 1993, she moved to Sweden and currently lives outside of Stockholm. Before moving to Sweden, the dominant element of her work was the human element, but after her arrival, animal imagery became prevalent. The animal as muse remains a continuous part of her work as Edelheit plays with image shape, size, scale, transparency, density and color vibrancy. She also plays with format by expressing her ideas through paintings, drawings, and sculptures. With her current animal subject, sheep, Edelheit depicts groups of the animal through three-dimensional drawing and painting with metal wires.
