Form and Influence

Exhibiting Artists: Teresa Cox and Alexander Tylevich

August 31 - October 5
Opening Reception: Friday, August 31, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Artist Talk: Tuesday, September 18, 7:00 p.m.

Although their influences may differ, artists Teresa Cox and Alexander Tylevich share their artistic expression by flattening, fragmenting, and exaggerating form, line and color. In Form and Influence we’ll visit Cox’s world where surreal qualities are exploited through robust color, pattern and share that suggest and unfolding mystery and theatrical otherworldly environments.

“This work is based on ephemeral and memories collected while hiking in mountains, forests and gardens.” – Teresa Cox

Amidst these dreamlike landscapes, Tylevich’s sculpted characters will pay homage to and comment on the 1920s avant-garde art movement founded in Vitebsk, Belarus by Marc Chagall and Kazimir Melvich. These pieces from his DIY Malevich series are constructed using a variety of materials including bronze, stainless steel, colored plastic, dichroic glass and painted wood. They often have movable, interchangeable parts.

Tribute to Lissitzky by Alexander Tylevich

Alexander Tylevich is an award-winning sculptor and architect born in Minsk, Belarus. His projects range from freestanding site-specific sculptures to a master plan for a metropolitan city. Since immigrating to the United States in 1989, he has realized more than 70 major art commissions and several architectural projects. He often works as a member of a larger team, with architects, landscape architects, and other design professionals. Tylevich’s work always demonstrates a purposeful co-mingling of the two disciplines of architecture and sculpture, and perhaps the best single word to describe his approach is ‘confluence.’
