Arcadia Contemporary, a long-time bastion of representational art in New York’s SoHo gallery district, has just moved to Santa Monica California. They are opening their first exhibition there with a group show of seven artists they represent who are based in California.
“Made in California” opens tomorrow, Saturday April 2, 2016 with an opening reception from 5-8pm.
The show will be on view until April 23, 2016.
You can view the Issuu Preview Catalog of the show here. (Use the full-sceen arrows at bottom right.)

Forms in Nature is an animated short film (2 minutes) in which natural and man-made forms are compared and contrasted within a carefully constrained and artfully orchestrated set of design parameters.
Largely focused on a central circle, the most basic of geometric forms, the images follow one another, often in shared screen transitions, in a way that encourages thoughtful and pleasurable re-viewing.
The vector art is beautifully realized and the entire animation is a visual and intellectual delight.
Intended as part of what I hope is a larger series, the production is credited to “Chromosphere“, a collaborative effort by Kevin Dart, Stéphane Coëdel, David Kamp, and Nelson Boles.
You can see more of their work here.
There is an extensive page devoted to the making of Forms in Nature on Motionographer.
