Quint Contemporary Art (QCA) is pleased to announce a summer series of short exhibitions. A
large portion of the gallery will be under renovation and we will be using a portion of our space
to introduce new artists, and showcase artists we have worked with in the past.
The first exhibition, which opens July 21st will focus on new figurative paintings by Los Angelesbased
artist John Millei. An abstract painter who up until recently had not used the figurative in
his paintings, John Millei is now ready to explore painting built out of abstract marks that in the
end come together to resemble a human head. The portraits are unrecognizable as any
particular person and the colors do not relate to human flesh. Portraits of You are paintings that
render the world metaphorically, in which scale is discontinuous, space is abstract, and form
On August 10th and continuing through August 25th we are excited to showcase works on paper
by artist Kim MacConnel, spanning ten years from 1973 to 1982. These pieces are gouache on
paper studies of MacConnel’s large-scale fabric paintings and large scale paintings. The works
on paper stand-alone as exquisite examples of MacConnel’s interest in pattern and design.
Starting August 28th we will present a group of works on paper that will include work by Peter
Alexander, Robert Irwin, Sol Lewitt, Ed Moses and David Reed among others.
The SUMMER SERIES kicks off with a public reception on Saturday, July 21st from 6 to 8PM. Artist
John Millei will be in attendance. MIHO Gastrot
