Outside the Box

Los Angeles based artist Mark Grotjahn has earned a following across the world for his focus on textures, colors and forms. In his Face and Butterfly painting series, he uses color to sear the canvas to what some have described as a hallucinogenic effect. Opening at 11 a.m. Saturday, the Nasher Sculpture Center (2001 Flora St.) presents the first museum exhibition solely emphasizing his 3-dimensional work. He uses minimalism to create a meeting place of modernism and tribalism that appears at times rudimentary. Many of his pieces explore essential minimalism, by painting a simple box, in the vein of Pablo Picasso or Alberto Giacometti’s painted objects. See the work through August 17. The gallery is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Entrance is $10. For more information visit nashersculpturecenter.org.
Tuesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: May 31. Continues through Aug. 17, 2014
