Beth Letain’s Vibrant ‘Dumbbell’: A Dance of Form and Color at Peres Projects

Marcel Schlutt, Kaltblut, March 7, 2024

Peres Projects Berlin unleashes Beth Letain’s latest abstract adventure, Dumbbell. Immersed in geometric play and embraced by intense hues, Letain (b. 1976, CA) displays an unbridled passion for disrupting her stringent artistic codes.

Each piece in Dumbbell marks an act of rebellion against her past, subtly altering variables like colour and spatial dynamics, and observing the evolving harmony. White paint now claims its space amid her pigment notably intensifying the normally translucent canvases. The exhibit captures Letain’s flirtation with circular shapes, defying her trademark orthogonal strictures and spilling over canvas borders.
