A gleaming bird in a gradient galaxy, I stand suspended in time, imbued with cosmic power. Who doesn’t love acting on a spontaneous desire? For artist Greg Allen-Müller the uninhibited use of color on a piece that he refers to as Hyper-realistic Straight Lines beams like an alien sun hovering over the barren landscape of his Martian Supine. Heroically occupying the space between sculpture and painting, Allen-Müller’s works allude to an expanse, moving towards the ecstatic radiance of an Agnes Martin painting. Growing up from Allen-Müller’s terrain and extending like taffy into a blue magic tree is Wendell Castle’s Two Headed Table, designed in 1969. Light years ahead in material exploration and thought, Castle’s Technicolor gel-coated fiberglass table reminds us what a pioneer of furniture-as-art he is. Perched within this sublime convergence of disciplines, I am feeling the look and attitude of Caitlin Price’s hybrid street/fantasy wear. Blazing a new wave of electric cross-pollination, this is an atmosphere of unselfconscious freedom.
