Solo exhibition by Brooklyn-based artist Teo González at Margaret Thatcher Projects.
From April 28 to June 4, 2016, Margaret Thatcher Projects proudly presents ‘Arch/Horizon Paintings’, a new collection of abstract work created by Brooklyn-based artist Teo González. In his first solo exhibition at the gallery, Teo González introduces us to his vibrant world of rich, saturated hues combined with monochrome white, black or grey gradations. His abstract paintings feature distorted grid-like pattern structures. They often appear in warped arrangements. The seemingly chaotic compositions are always well balanced creating a sense of orderliness in the totality. González’ body of artworks is largely based on perception. He loves to test the way we perceive colors, shapes, and sizes. Each artwork’s expression depends on the viewer’s associations with certain color combinations or the interaction of various forms. Certain colors, forms and arrangements can trigger different memories or emotions.
