Space 1026 is pleased to present Maze Generation, a solo exhibition of new work by Ryan Beck. Maze Generation is a body of work which represents several months of exploration into the term “maze generation” and ways that it could be applied to Beck’s process. The term first came into his view after seeing a documentary about Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining”. He was intrigued by the descriptions of maze patterns in the film and shortly after, the surrounding concepts and theories of maze generation began relating to the way he approached his work. The paintings in Maze Generation are the result of allowing those theories and various interpretations of the term to lead him through a re-evaluation of his process, application and approach to color. His work frequently pairs muted and watery tones with defined marks and vibrant colors-pairing quiet, ephemeral moments with frenetic activity. Ryan Beck is a Philadelphia based artist who has shown in Philadelphia, New York, Miami, and Los Angeles.

Space 1026 is pleased to present Unfold All Over, an upcoming solo exhibition of new paintings by Lynnea Holland-Weiss. Unfold All Over is filled with large figurative paintings full of mood, color and pattern that delve into our human instincts and the mystery of being.
How does one navigate the unknown? The process of making decisions, the course of actions and the limitlessness of how it all may unfurl. This body of work reflects on the crammed noise and unsure banter as well as the in between moments of clarity and decisive momentum. Life progresses and unfolds, and these large figurative paintings capture the moments and feelings involved in traveling through change and transition. Lynnea states that “with painting, I am always more interested in creating a mood, than telling a story. I want to evoke, rather than inform. The specificity of the experience is no longer important, the underlying tone or mood is what I am after.” The color and the way in which each figure is painted, whether flat and graphic, loose and gestural, or rendered and realistic, often expresses even more than that which is being represented. This variety of approaches then creates a complex visual and emotional dialogue within each painting.
Lynnea Holland-Weiss is a painter originally from Oakland, CA. There she received her BFA from California College of the Arts. She spent last year traveling around the country and abroad painting murals, and has now found herself settled in Philadelphia, PA. Her experiences on the road and moving across the country are undeniably reflected and represented in Unfold All Over. Lynnea’s murals and street art live in California, New Mexico, Louisiana, Ohio, Massachusetts and Brazil. Her work has been exhibited in galleries in San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, Philadelphia and Atlanta, and she was an Artist in Residence in Hawaii through the Holualoa Foundation for Arts and Culture. Her background is in Dance, therefore the human body, its expression, gestures and movement, often inspire and inform her painting practice, process and the content of her work.
