Press Release

SHIN GALLERY is pleased to present, De Forma, a group exhibition featuring works by Gotthard Graubner, Gerrit Rietveld, Isamu Noguchi, and Ted Stamm. Utilizing paintings and furniture, the exhibition pairs design with visual art to question the formation of shapes and their metaphorical significance as a means of artistic expression. Gotthard Graubner experiments with color and space to formulate his “cushion paintings,” creating a gravitational pull for the viewer, while Ted Stamm integrates hard edge geometric drawings to illustrate monochromatic and conceptual forms. Gerrit Rietveld and Isamu Noguchi juxtapose the visual artworks with minimalist and organic design, creating accessible objects through geometric compositions. The creation of the works range from 1955 to 1984 and are curated with the intent to embrace shape, color, and space. De Forma enables the viewer to encounter a variety of artists who address an alternate perspective on the function of forms in relation to their spatial surroundings. The exhibition will be on view from January 11th through February 24th with an opening reception on Friday, January 11th, from 6–8pm.
