Gene Moty is the Arches Gallery Featured Artist for October. His show is called “Less is More: A New Language Of Abstract Minimalism.”
A retired Air Force officer, Gene creates minimalist abstract oil paintings in a modern style using only traditional materials. The works on display embrace his less is more philosophy with a pure clean modern style, counterbalancing today’s frenetic pace of life with contemplative energy. Gene focuses on pure abstraction and simplicity by incorporating geometric shapes, perpendicular lines, grids and primary colors in his work. Every aspect of each piece is intuitively placed in the composition with the goal of creating engaging pieces for one to soak up, explore, and enjoy.
Gene’s paintings will be on view Oct. 1 through Nov. 3 in Gallery 9 of the Workhouse Arts Center (9518 Workhouse Road, Lorton). Come meet Gene at the artist’s reception on Oct. 13 from 6:00-9:00 p. m. You can see more of Gene’s work on his website, genemoty.com, or you can follow him on Instagram at instagram.com/genemotyartist/.
