Opening Night: Matt Buck and Beau Stanton at Last Rites Gallery

On June 29, Last Rites Gallery opened two solo shows: Matt Buck's "(A)part" and Beau Stanton's "Arcane Archetypes." Working with a mix of figuration and geometry, Stanton presented a series of mandala-like paintings. His symmetrical compositions to allude to Buddhist and Hindu religious iconography while creating a network of symbols of their own through repeating imagery. Meanwhile, Matt Buck's new work applies geometry to the body — he chops up and compartmentalizes his characters until they take on otherworldly forms as they defy the laws of physics. Both "Arcane Archetypes" and "(A)part" will be on view through August 10. Take a look at some photos from the opening night by Paola Duran as well as some images of the artwork in the show after the jump!
