Link & Pin granted this solo exhibition to Larry Akers for his Best in Show Award in a group exhibition last Fall at the gallery.

Akers’ fluid, pattern-based imagery is the common denominator in his work. Using layered, patterned, refractive, or reflective materials, color, and light, he produces kinetic sculptures with a twist; the only moving part being the viewer. His goal is to create feasts for visual perception, free of interpretative baggage and appealing to everyone's childlike impulse to grok the unusual.

The challenge to the viewer is to understand, with accessible visual and geometric concepts, how its images can animate, appear to float free from their materials, and present cognitively imposed illusions. The viewer is invited to look ever closer and by doing so, become part of the artwork through their unique internal manipulation of it. His hope is that by their examination, they will better understand both the artworks and the relationship between vision and cognition.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until October 29.
