Mattatuck Museum

Opening September 15: In painting and sculpture, Steven Naifeh explores the affinity between the geometric abstraction of Western art and the tradition of Arab and Islamic abstraction.

In some, the geometric form remains constant while scale and color change. All offer rich ideas for exploration, formal beauty, the nature of abstraction and the intersection of mathematics and art.

The Fractal Architectures SeriesBuilding the imageThe Fractal Architectures, is a series of nine images divided into three chapters: The Matryoshka Dolls, The Square Roots, and The Star Shells. The hyper-realistic models, conceived for the unique point of view of the camera, are built in the toy scale of 1/24 to life size and above, following a fractal logic. Within the interlocked spaces, body parts such as a foot, a thumb or a face appear to reveal the multiple scales incorporated in the model. Young characters unfold within these fractal architectures, which are at once their toy, their home, their childhood, their adulthood, the space between their past and their future. After the photograph is realized each of these miniatures is deconstructed.Fractal GeometryThe conception of each model begins with a simple geometric figure; the circle for the Matryoshka Dolls, the square for the Square Roots, and the spiral for the Star Shells. These elementary forms repeat at different scales to create an intricate pattern, which weaves together the infinitely small and the infinitely big. This never-ending fractal motif spreads across the wallpaper, and is the basis of the model’s floor plan and interior design.  The Matryoshka DollsThe first chapter of the Fractal Architectures unfolds the archetype of the circle. The wallpaper for the Matryoshka series is made up of nested dolls woven in a circular dance, each impregnated with this repeating pattern. Similarly in the model, the circular archetype puts everything in rotation; the hardwood floor grows in concentric circles, the doors bend in arches, and the staircase swirls to the higher alcoves. The walls undulate organically, folding and refolding in a womb-like interior where the exterior seems to no longer exist.
