Group Exhibition

Featured Artists:

Tahiti Pehrson

AO is an abstract exploration into the Japanese colour word by the same name, which signifies what English-speakers would call Blue and Green. Using traditional and nontraditional mediums, drawing inspiration from the natural environment and the mutable character of the sea, the Artists investigate beyond the surface and into the great depths of AO.

PATHS

25.05 – 25.06.2016

A two person exhibition by Tahiti Pehrson & Andrzej Urbanski.

This exhibition features the latest paintings by Andrzej Urbanski alongside incredible hand-cut paper-works, created by Tahiti Pehrson on a recent visit to South Africa. The artists have also merged their talents on a collaborative piece. Urbanski works predominantly in spray paint, oils & acrylics on a variety of surfaces such as canvas, paper and acrylic-coated surfaces. His style is clean and abstract, yet dynamic, bold and colourful. Pehrson’s compositions seem to float – suspended, complex geometric and organic lattices created entirely by hand with paper as the only medium, and the subtle shadows the only colour.

Andrzej Urbanski is a Polish-German painter and sculptor who resides in Cape Town, South Africa. His most recent solo exhibition was titled Mindgame, presented by Salon91 during March 2015, and has since shown with the gallery at the Cape Town and Turbine Art Fairs and will be representing Salon91 at the upcoming FNB Joburg Art Fair this September.

TAHITI PEHRSON DOCUMENTARY – TRAILER

During February 2014, we were blessed to host a solo exhibition by Tahiti Pehrson. While the artist and his travel companion were in Cape Town, they filmed part of a documentary on Tahiti’s career as artist and his passion for skateboarding, as well as the ways in which people are universally connected, hence the name of his solo exhibition, Connectivity. Watch the beautifully crafted trailer here, which features music by Bilderberg Motel.

Thank you Adrian Day of Baseline.

A solo exhibition by  Tahiti Pehrson

Tahiti Pehrson spent his early years without electricity growing up in a bohemian artist household in Northern California. Art was a mode of entertainment without television or music and long hours were spent in nature and drawing. Influenced by the burgeoning skateboarding and punk scene of the mid Nineteen-eighties and later engaging in the San Francisco street art and graffiti culture of the late Nineties. Traveling Europe and China in search of art enrichment and later attending the San Francisco Art Institute as a painting major, Pehrson left after a year and a half. A practice of stencil-making and street art evolved into a more and more detailed practice of paper cutting two and three-dimensional works.

Pehrson has been working and exhibiting in hand cut paper for the last fifteen years. Over the last five plus years his works have concentrated on highly detailed geometric patterns called Guilloche which date back to Classical Greek and Roman times, later to be perfected by the Rose Engine Lathe in France in the late 1700’s. Today these patterns can be seen on almost every currency in the world as well as hub cups watches and also seem to touch on the design sense intrinsic to nature. These highly detailed monochromatic works create with light and shadow a hypnotic field of Moire patterning.

With many intersections creating a larger fabric, themes in the work center around Connectivity, Systems, Variation and fragility.

 

ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

For as long as I can remember I have used art to define and document my experiences. The inexactness of outcome always suited me and yet my work has evolved more and more towards exactness. In the process of cutting more and more detailed works I started to become aware of variation and indeed of repetition. Each shape morphing from square to diamond to triangle, and each variation leading to the next, all forming a larger fabric and pattern. A system connected. Our world is often defined by our differences rather than the reality of parts of a whole. I became interested in the things that make us the same. Even if art is reduced only to a visual experience, trying to create an experience that could both inspire and suggest a wide variety of narratives. The viewer is invited to tailor his/her own experience, and thus engaging personally. A person of faith may read and interpret religious or spiritual implications while a more scientifically minded individual could see Geometry yet both narratives describe a larger system encompassing a whole. There is a tension, which exists between the apparent fragility of the medium played against the strength of connectivity in a radiant fabric of variation.

ARTWORKS PRESENTED:

Tahiti Pehrson

TAHITI PEHRSON is a Northern Californian artist with long ties to the Bay Area. Recent works explore the fragility and interconnectedness expressed by physical structures. Large scale installations of geometrical hand cut paper are layered into three-dimensional structures. Pehrson has been working in paper for nearly fifteen years. Building sculptures by the cutting away of material, Tahiti Pehrson creates geometrical patterns of volume that speak to universal traditions of patternmaking throughout the history mathematics, arts, and crafts. Dating back to the first sign of Guilloche in Greek and Roman times, and seen independently throughout world history, variations of these patterns can be found across the natural and the manmade world. Within Pehrson’s sculptures, each shape receives light and serves the structure of the whole system, concentrically leading to the next variation to make a singular structure. These intricate sculptures explore interplays of light and shadow, building dynamic monochromatic constructions that give material form to the space-changing qualities of light. Elevating the spatial qualities particular to each commission, Pehrson’s works speak to site: shifting perceptions of volume and structure as the viewer moves around the work – and as the light evolves throughout the day. Born in 1972 to artist parents in Santa Rosa, CA, Pehrson began early life as a painter. Like many painters, Pehrson wanted to imitate light in such a way as to capture it. After traveling Mexico, China and the museums of Europe in search of art, he moved to San Francisco to follow in the footsteps of his father by attending art school in the Bay Area. At the San Francisco Art Institute, Pehrson found himself increasingly disillusioned with painting as he was exposed to new ideas and modes of working. In reaction, he sought to “drop-out” of art and work in the streets with stickers and stencil making – a process that would evolve into a more developed and dedicated practice of paper-cutting, together with also beginning a new process of public engagement.
