Michael Warren Contemporary (MWC) is pleased to present “PTTSAAES: Works by Robert Mangold.” PTTSAAES is an acronym standing for “Point Traveling Through Space At An Erratic Speed.” This series of stationary sculpture creates visual equations that imply movement – with long linear passages diverting abruptly, from one corner to the next, causing the viewer eyes to increase speed as they follow the surface of the work.

Robert Mangold is often considered one of the pioneers of the contemporary art scene in Denver. Mangold moved to Colorado in 1960, working alongside Vance Kirkland at CU Denver before founding the art department at Metro State in 1965. His works can be found in important collections around the world and are proudly on display throughout the city.

We are also excited to offer new works by Margaret Lawless. The term capriccio is used to describe architectural fantasy, often creating imaginary realities by combining actual buildings and places with imaginary ones. Lawless not only shifts and reimagines places but also social landscapes. Margaret starts with images from art history and combines them with text and image-based research on political and economic terminology in order to create new works as her own version of the romanticized historical landscape genre.
