“CrossCurrents”: An Exhibition About Creativity During the Pandemic

(The LA Trend) — William Turner Gallery is proud to present its latest exhibition, “CrossCurrents”, a group art show that celebrates some of the thought-provoking art made during the COVID-19 pandemic.

While there is no denying the massive detriment COVID-19 has been to the world—one that we are still dealing with—it has also been a strange sort of boon to the lives and work of many artists. Even though countless museums, galleries, and events have been put on hold during this chaotic and tragic time, many artists have found that many of their usual distractions and obligations have disappeared, giving them more time to focus on their craft.

And so, it is with “CrossCurrents” that the William Turner Gallery wishes to shine a spotlight on the unique and provocative works that were created during the pandemic. It’s a reminder that, no matter how dark our times may become, there’s always hope to be found in the process of art-making.

Below are some of the artists whose recent work will be on display for this show:

  • Casper Brindle, showcasing three startling explorations into color and perspective with the use of automotive paints
  • Alex Couwenberg, returning to the gallery with new complex and intricate compositions in line, color, shape, and texture.
  • Nellie King Solomon, making her gallery debut with two ornate works on mylar with bold improvisational gestures.
  • Jennifer Wolf, whose featured work uses layers of painted silk and mineral pigments for moody abstract landscapes.

“CrossCurrents” is at William Turner Gallery from April 3 to May 22, 2021.
