Steven Lavaggi is a prolific Austin-based artist who has been painting professionally for over 45 years. His large color field paintings contain a spontaneous energy that captivates the imagination. His dramatic contrast of light and dark accented by bursts of color evoke a sense of spatial intrigue where the mind can wander and be captivated.
Opening Reception with the Artist Saturday, January 19th, 7-9pm
These distorted hand-stretched canvases break the flat plane of a traditional paintings and invert the viewer’s attention. Geometric compositions highlight the canvas form and allow the drama of the work to happen at the edges of the canvas, rather than within the field. These unique works must be seen in the round to be fully appreciated.
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 23rd, 7-10pm
