UDO NÖGER / SYDNEY YEAGER: From Within Artist Exhibition & Opening Reception: Saturday, April 1, 2017 from 5-8pm On Display through May 6, 2017 Dallas Design District gallery, Laura Rathe Fine Art (LRFA), presents the exhibition “From Within,” featuring new works by noted contemporary artists, Sydney Yeager and Udo Nöger, with an opening reception on Saturday, April 1st from 5-8pm. Although they explore divergent techniques and mediums, together the artists share an interest in exploring abstract forms that appear to organically emerge both from within and upon the surface of each canvas in surprisingly unique displays of color and light. “From Within” will be the Dallas gallery’s first presentation of works by both Yeager and Nöger. The exhibition will be on view through May 6, 2017. ABOUT THE ARTISTS Born in Germany and based in San Diego, Miami, and Geneva, Switzerland, Udo Nöger is widely known for his luminous abstractions created in a seemingly infinite range of white and silvery grayscale tones. Nöger’s goal is to “open up the canvas,” exploring “space and the endless possibilities of what’s underneath.” Composed of three or four layers of tautly stretched canvas between which the artist carefully embeds painted gestures and cut-out forms, his works enable light to travel in and around these elements revealing ethereal images that appear to glow from within. The paintings of Sydney Yeager navigate the space between control and abandon. In her recent work, the Austin-based artist paints more directly with little possibility of revision. Her forms reveal the artist’s fluid gesture and the unique qualities of her medium, exploring oil paint’s sensuous weight and viscosity. Yeager also maintains an interest in fragments. Hovering in fields of delicate wash or unprimed canvas, her interwoven brushstrokes coalesce into contingent wholes that simultaneously seem to be collapsing into their component parts.
