"Hypertexturalities" in the words of painter Mark Milloff "is not a sequel but an evolution".

"Hypertexture" can be seen in design (grasscrete) topiary (Robert Irwin's
take on trees as influenced by Arata Iozaki's computer renderings of them in
computer architectural simulations or the topiaries in the movie "aeon flux") and the amount of painters following from the trans-filmic lead-ins of Jackson Pollock, Jamie Dalglish, and David Reed into hypertextural morphologies grows into a lexicon.
This new exhibition will try to visit the place where architectures infuse and morphologies expand the fertile edge of a new aesthetic landscape where the plastic ends and the digital begins and the digital ends and the tactile
