Exploring the self, the human condition, transformation and transcendence, this upcoming show at PSPS brings together sculptural forms, pigment rich abstraction and video to investigate the metaphysical nature of the body, consciousness and experience.

Showing works by Agni Zotis, Stephan Fowlkes, Scott Cousins and Paul Seftel, there are many common threads in thinking and vision of this group of New York artists. All in their late 30’s and early 40’s, mostly self taught, fiercely independent, more than a wee bit anti art school/ establishment, each continues to find reward and success in contact with their own creative forces, prestigious private collectors and art world luminaries. Believing that originality forms from self knowledge and exploration, rather than through formal education, they all share a true passion for exploring what cannot be seen, drawing inspiration from experience, spiritual awareness, and material process. Looking to understand one’s place in the world in the same way as scientists, philosophers and theologians, visual art is their collective means and method of communicating what truly cannot be expressed in words.

What we find is the voice of a generation emerging, one that considers bigger questions of consciousness, form and formlessness, finding elegant and direct ways to expound these notions and living realities. A universal and common language appears, these colorful rhythms attempting to communicate the essence of who we are, and where we are, now.
