Sacred Geometry: The Psychedelic Art of Mark Piotrowski

Exhibition Website

Sep 9 2016 - Dec 10 2016

Featuring vibrant and complex works centered on the concept of fractal and kaleidoscopic patterning, this exhibition is comprised of enamel on shaped panel paintings by contemporary Bay City, Michigan artist, Mark Piotrowski. Composed of repeating abstract shapes and elastic-like bands of highly saturated color, Piotrowski’s compositions begin with a singular shape that expands upon itself, creating a hypnotic effect and the illusion of infinite depth not unlike the psychedelic art of the late 1960s counterculture. Likewise, Piotrowski’s paintings examine the social and spiritual sentiments inspired by insights derived from psychedelic states of consciousness, while also incorporating sacred geometry, whose principals were employed in the architecture of antiquity, and are based on the human body and those of divine beings.
