The artist creates intricate artscapes by tracing the lines created when paper is crumpled up. The resulting patterns explore “the generative design of the gesture.”

Looyenga’s focus is to find “the codes and pattern within the gesture and moment; how the action affects the result.”

Looyenga is originally from Waterloo, but has been based in London, England since graduating with his MFA from Central St. Martins.

Open Gallery, at 454 Kingston Rd., is hosting an opening night reception from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 25, and are promising a mix of art, people, wine, and “very, very spicy nuts.”
