Currently on view at Romer Young Gallery, San Francisco is “Striped Knot,” a solo exhibition by New York artist Elise Ferguson. Ferguson’s work is an interpretation, via abstraction, of interior space and the flexible nature of perception. Using pattern and color, along with a range of process driven approaches and modern materials, Ferguson creates works based on mathematical puzzles and geometric variation. The results are beautiful works that blur the boundaries between painting and sculpture. Inspired by Louis Kahn’s uncamouflaged use of cement – with seams showing, the irregularities celebrated – her works embrace their inherent materiality and have a distinct object-like quality.
