Opening reception December 5th 3 - 5pm
Court Tree Collective proudly presents Color and Space, a group exhibition featuring works by New York-based artists Liza Domingues, Kishi Ui, Jim Osman, Scott Reeds, and Jaime Patino-Calvo. These four artistic voices are united by their translation of highly personal observation through the core visual elements of line, surface, color, and space. They invite us to enter a rich spatial world created by the intersection of distinct aesthetic perspectives.

Liza Domingues was born in São Paulo, Brazil and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. In 2004, she received a degree in visual communication from Fundação Armando Álvares Penteado in São Paulo, Brazil. Best known for her acrylic paintings and cut, painted and assembled wood pieces, she also works in a variety of other mediums. Her work has been exhibited throughout New York and São Paulo and is part of several private collections.
Kishi Ui moved to the United States in 1977 in order to come face to face with the world's most powerful and expressive works. Collectively, through his study and experience, Mr. Ui believes his method of layering texture leads the viewer into a sensation of touching the wind or seeing sunlight filter through trees. In college, the study of aesthetics and the literary arts introduced him to Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty and Derrida. These philosophers urged him to think intuitively, then more sensuously, and influenced how he approached the philosophy of his homeland: Zen and Nishida Kitaro. Also, his primary education included a strong emphasis on Catholicism.

Scott currently resides in Brooklyn and is teaching at Trinity College in Hartford, Ct. His curatorial work includes venues at Hampshire College, Felician University, Melville House, and the East 4th Street Community Garden in Brooklyn.
Colombia-born artist and designer Jaime Patino-Calvo works and lives in Brooklyn. His work obsessively depicts the human emotional state of mind. Jaime paints improvisationally and spontaneously without an act of direction. Often balancing between figurative and non-figurative drawings, sometimes inspired by biology and cosmology. His subjects take on cultural aspects that are both tangible and familiar. A narrative that evokes ancestral past, present and future.
