GREY MATTER ART SPACE is thrilled to present INFINITE SURRENDER | DIVINE INTENTION, a two person exhibition featuring the work of Alex Kondner & Jordan Faye Block. Alex Kondner is Baltimore-based multi-media artist, who's work combines elements of painting and sculpture. His latest series of work, involves mirrored shields and objects that invite the viewer and their individual ego to discover the greater truth and reward which lies beyond the act of surrender. Jordan Faye Block is a Baltimore-based artist & curator, her large-scale works are filled with undulating lines that form a complex web of patterns and dimensions. They are often lyrical in nature, inspired from her practices of daily meditation, kundalini yoga and chanting mantras. She views the act of creation as a form of meditation, letting the mind tune in and flow.

Grey Matter will host an Opening Reception for Infinite Surrender | Divine Intention on Friday June 8, 7–11pm. The artists will be present at the Opening. The exhibition runs thru July 29, 2018.  The gallery will be open from 12 – 5pm Saturday and by appointment. There is a Closing Reception on Sunday July 29 from 3–8pm.
