Teo González, 23.4837K

A Solo Exhibition of New Paintings

September 13 – October 11
Opening reception: Saturday, September 13, 6-8PM

Teo González extends his signature approach to process, organic form, and the color values of his very specific pigments in a new series of paintings with gold pigment on various grounds as well as new paintings in the artist’s current color compositions. The title of the exhibition, 23.4837K, represents a playful and hypothetical karat value (K) of the gold pigment used in the paintings, a number which represents the impossibility of achieving the “pure value” of 24K, or 100% gold. 23.4837K is a symbol of limits, imperfections, and the reality of worldly matter for an artist whose work has sought ideal harmonies. -Martin Irvine
