New York, NY- House of the Nobleman is pleased to present Logical Guesses, a curated exhibition featuring a diverse group of artists who incorporate calculations, patterns, and equations into their work. The pieces in this exhibition explore space and illusion through the manipulation of light and materials favoring rational hypothesis over emotional development.
Logical Guesses focuses on shape, size, and the properties of space by highlighting artists who utilize logic to express aesthetic variations. Each work in this exhibition elicits an innate consistency because no phase of the artistic process contradicts another. Instead of spontaneity, the artists work under a system of rules to perpetuate a unique engagement between object and form.
This exhibition is being organized in conjunction with Driscoll Babcock Gallery. Driscoll Babcock Galleries, founded in 1852 by John Snedecor, is the oldest gallery in New York City. The gallery represents contemporary and historic artists who have proven instrumental in extending visual and aesthetic culture, and whose creative visions have resonance and pertinence well beyond the time and place they were created. In 2012, the gallery celebrated its 160th anniversary and moved to an expanded, newly designed ground floor space in the heart of Chelsea. Accompanying the gallery's new location is a growing stable of internationally recognized contemporary artists and an enhanced selection of important masters from the past.
