Antoine Predock: Strata


February 3 - March 13, 2015
Opening Reception: January 31, 2015, 6:00 - 8:00 pm in partnership with On the Map: Unfolding Albuquerque Art + Design opening events
   

Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Strata, an exhibition of collages, works on paper, and architectural models by internationally acclaimed New Mexico architect Antoine Predock. Strata samples the expansive scope of this architect’s approach to design with a focus on his process works for the Tacoma Art Museum and selected projects in the Albuquerque area. This exhibtion is in participation with On the Map: Unfolding Albuquerque Art + Design, an expansive collaboration celebrating the art of central New Mexico.

Critical to the spirit of Predock’s work is the enigmatic quality of the desert. His large scale collages reflect diagrams of historical data often seen in exposed rock faces in New Mexican landscapes. These collages are a collection of visual information relating to each site. Clusters of images are stratified with quotes ranging from Jorge Luis Borges to Richard Serra and reveal the beginning phases of his conceptual process.

 
     
   
   

 

   

Predock’s handmade clay models provide physical form to two dimensional ideas. Building on these forms, sophisticated three dimensional models are made. In spite of utilitarian function,these elegant models stand independently as abstract art objects. Process models of the Tacoma Art Museum in Washington, Robinson Valley House and United Blood Services in Albuquerque are exhibited alongside corresponding works on paper. These renderings illustrate structure, space and the impulse to reflect the spirit of environment. His intuition regarding the elemental power of place resonates throughout initial design phases and completed projects.

Antoine Predock is the recipient of the 2006 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal, Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and the 1985 Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome. He was named a 2015 Royal Institute of British Architects International Fellow, an Honorary Fellow from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and National Academician in 2014, and a Senior Fellow of the Design Futures Council in 2010. His most recent project, The Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba, opened in September 2014 and has garnered much attention. Predock currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA and Albuquerque, NM.
