In describing his work, Alex Zecca uses the phrases precise formulaic structure, unique algorithm, and organic moiré forms. He uses them in complete sentences, but more words would only confuse you further, and these are confusing enough. Zecca doesnt lay out the specifics on what these words have to do, precisely, with his jaw dropping line paintings in the exhibit New Work, but its mathematical and scientific enough to scare us off of further inquiry. But his line paintings: jaw-dropping, for sure. Also psychedelic, transporting, and painstakingly obsessive, reminding us of patterns in nature, sheets of dream rain, a monks life work, peacocks, string theory, bead curtains and all the '70s wonderment they enclose, and reams of computer data, output in colors. His exhibit runs in conjunction with work from Suzanne Frazier from her Tidelog series, whose paintings, while as graphically loose as Zeccas are tight, are also grounded in organic forms.
