Laura Rathe Fine Art, presents 'Genesis,' featuring new works by Texas artists, Roi James and Katherine Houston. Using a wide range of techniques and mediums, together the artists share an interest in creating bold, yet mysterious forms and environments that encourage deep contemplation. Roi James's paintings and sculptural works explore archetypal forms that appear both mysterious and familiar to the viewer. He investigates "how uncertainty can lead to meaning and understanding . . . and how the recognizable can rise out of purely abstract form." Katherine Houston's 'reverse painting' technique requires her to work backwards, resolving the foregrounds of her paintings first and their backgrounds last. Her works are remarkably luminous and employ bold abstract motifs that subtly reference landscape and the concept of infinite space. 'Genesis' will be on view through February 11, 2017.
