Michael Kohn Gallery is thrilled to announce an exhibition of new paintings, works on paper and site-specific installations from artist RETNA. Retna has a particular interest in the visual writings of ancient cultures, from Arabic and Persian to Hebrew and Native American. Both hieroglyphics and the graceful tradition of in calligraphy inform his paintbrush while the angeles and curves of his improvised alphabet echo the architecture of a mosque of Asian temple. Equally evident in Retna’s nuanced script is the artist’s interest in Modernist abstraction. This exhibition will be on display til October 27, for more information about this event visit KohnGallery.com.
