The Northern Virginia Community College’s Manassas campus has geometric paintings from artist David Levy on display.
According to a release, the “Engineered Abstraction” exhibit began on August 29, and on September 25 Levy will be present at Colgan Hall to discuss his paintings during a reception at 12:15 p.m.
More on Levy, from a release:
Levy began painting more than 40 years ago as a Lehigh University student. In August 2012, he joined the Guild of Creative Art in New Jersey where he currently serves as docent and president. His hard edge style paintings and optical art have been displayed innumerous shows and garnered several awards.
“I love the purity of geometric forms, crisp and elegant lines, a few bold colors, and the visual record of brushstroke. In combining these things, I wish to visually please, provoke and, on occasion, perplex my audience but always to engage them. I want my paintings to provide a kind of visual aerobics for viewers’ eyes, to entice them to repeatedly scan and measure them, but also to discover patterns that help to make the painting seem flat and abstract. I also want my viewers to appreciate the illusion of spatial depth that I suggest. Ideally, the paintings should be understood and enjoyed both two dimensionally and three dimensionally,” stated Levy in a release.
The Colgan Gallery is open for viewing Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays.
