Conceived and curated by Jude Barton in 2020, the Architecture of Form exhibition honors the self-referential vocabulary of geometry. Geometry intrinsically rejects contemporary transient socio-political, and cultural involvement as well as the interpretive bias of the viewer. Shape, color, composition, and form emerge through the artists’ dialog and interaction with the vocabulary of geometry, and a commitment to expressions of beauty, balance, structure, and tension.
During the initial conception of Architecture of Form, Barton invited colleagues who were like-minded in their approach to non-objective art to explore the possibility of exhibiting together. Over a period of months and several meetings, the participating artists discussed the historical relevance, inspiration and various styles embraced in the movement, frequently citing artists and historical references such as Theo Van Doesburg, Malevich, Kandinsky, Minimalism, DeStijl, Suprematism, Art Concret, Constructivism, Bauhaus and the early Russian avant-garde.
Now in its third year, Architecture of Form will once again show works of 14 artists at Core Art Space in the 40 West art district in Lakewood, Colorado.
