Surface Haze: Charles Long Presents New Abstract Sculptures

NEW YORK—Tonya Bonakdar Gallery is presenting a collection of sculptures by Charles Long called “Minimal Surfaces_Ocean of Hours.” The innovative works look like three-dimensional doodles surfaced in resin. According to the gallery, the exhibit’s title “minimal surfaces” refers to a mathematical principle which states that “a given plane assumes a geometrical configuration of least possible area into which it can readily deform according to a given framework.”

The exhibit is on view from Feb. 25 to April 7, 2012.
