In the abstract: Rebecca Rutstein and Jared Weiss

Michael Abatemarco, Pasatiempo, July 17, 2017

Two exhibits now on view at Form & Concept — Rebecca Rutstein: Fault Lines and Jared Weiss: He’s Either Dead or It Was His Birthday — explore internal and external worlds through a lens of abstraction. Basing her work on scientific data and observances, Rutstein takes elements of her research and recontextualizes them in paintings that explore motion, line, color, and form. Jared Weiss works from memory, or rather the lack thereof, exploring the phenomena of screen memories in a vibrant exhibition of paintings of scenes of daily life, much of it autobiographical, where not everything that’s happening is as it seems. Pasatiempo spoke with the artists about the exhibitions that opened on June 30.
