MOKHA LAGET’S COLOR INTO SPACE
LUSH CHROMATICS AND SPATIAL AMBIGUITY
Opening reception and exhibition of Laget’s uniquely shaped paintings
DALLAS–The Museum of Geometric and MADI Art (MADI) is proud to present Mokha Laget’s exhibition titled, Color into Space. This new, solo exhibit will be composed of over 20 breathtaking works including Laget’s signature shaped paintings, using unconventional clay pigments, and colorful lithographs. Her work, though firmly rooted in an art historical context, is inspired by her life experiences in locations such as the American Southwest, Japan and North Africa.
Born in North Africa, Mokha Laget is a graduate of the Corcoran School of Art. There she met and became assistant to the Washington Color School painter Gene Davis. Although inspired by Davis, Laget has her own signature sense of color and space.
Dorothy Masterson, founder of the MADI, describes the exhibit as exotic and sensual. “The vast landscapes and strange interiors engage the viewer to explore shaped canvases and see paradox impossibilities.”
Masterson says Laget has the rare ability to intertwine color and form in complex and compelling compositions. The exhibition showcases her artistic excellence.
The opening reception of Color into Space will take place on Friday, July 29, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. The event is free of charge. Following the opening reception, Laget’s artwork will be displayed at the museum through October 30, 2016.
