Madison Gallery welcomes ‘Minimal Thought’


“Minimal Thought,” an exhibition that features works of art by artists Richard Roblin and Lori Cozen-Geller will be exhibited from Nov. 5 to Dec. 31 at Madison Gallery.

The title of this exhibition is a mockery of the misconception that abstract and minimalistic artwork is not thought provoking. On the contrary both artists in this exhibition express spiritual and personal elements within all their pieces.

This show is a highlight of works by Canadian artist, Richard Roblin, to celebrate over 50 years of exhibition and accomplishment. Roblin has been exhibited internationally in cities including New York, London, and Montreal. His works have been exhibited in major museums including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Montreal Museum of Fine Art.

The eclectic collection of paintings is from a few different series of Roblin’s new and older works but emphasize the importance of color and texture. Many of his painting are carvings on canvas that Roblin has created with a palette knife.

These raw paintings are carefully curated with Lori Cozen-Geller’s slick and spotless architectural installations. Cozen-Geller creates minimalistic wall-mounted sculptures that are created from wood with polished automobile paint. Her work has been critiqued by art critic, Peter Frank, and can be seen at the Ventura Art Museum.
