Marking the artist's ninth solo exhibition with the gallery, Chris Kahler presents a series of recent works on paper titled "Permutate." The new series offers a unique body of work emerging from the questioning of linear possibilities and systematic process. The new work pertains to the concepts of destruction and regeneration, and the rhythm of emerging forms. Kahler's exploration of negative space, light, and intersecting planes has resulted in arresting juxtapositions of biomorphic and ephemeral forms. Similar to previous works he explores the "boundaries between physical and psychological time, between phenomena and the variable conceptual filters for understanding them." In conjunction with the exhibition, Bruno David Gallery Publications will publish a catalogue of the artists work with an exhibition history and bibliography.
