Channa Horwitz at Lisson Gallery in East Hampton
22 October 2020
For the latest exhibition in East Hampton, Lisson Gallery is pleased to present a rare painting from 1993 by Channa Horwitz, presented publicly for the first time, alongside a selection of her signature works on paper. Only receiving endorsement and acclaim later in her life, Horwitz worked in Los Angeles largely outside of the art world canon. Posthumously, she has come to be regarded as an important proponent of Conceptual Art and West Coast Minimalism, and has influenced generations of sound, music, movement, dance, light and animation artists.
The work on view, Rhythm of Lines (1993), comes from a series of the same name and is one of only five paintings in the group. Each work from the Rhythm of Lines series is composed by the pairing of two sets of eight lines, wherein each area of intersection creates intricate and unique Moiré patterns. This painting represents a vibrant example, with various shades of pink, yellow, red, purple, and the inclusion of gold leaf, and highlights Horwitz’s ongoing fascination with capturing space, movement and time through structure, line and pattern – an investigation she pursued resolutely from the 1960s until her death in 2013.
