PRESS RELEASE…………………………………FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 8th through July 28th, 2006
The Edward Thorp Gallery will present an exhibition of seven under known artists who have been working within their chosen discipline for some time without extensive exposure in the New York art community. These intriguing artists work in a variety of mediums. This will be an exhibit of drawings, paintings and sculptures.
Illuminated, expressive, narrative paintings and drawings that convey a sharp sense of the absurd and, through historical distancing, comment on present day catastrophes.
Often painted over extended periods of time, these investigative, vibrant, accumulations of surfaces and intentions, are paintings that appear to trap time and processes of thought.
Retinal, striated layers of color and line, vibrate in expansive paintings, resembling delicate cellular structures of leaded glass.
These intimate ceramic wall pieces are hand built; raw, physical, forms are incised and pierced then glazed in the fashion of glass or ceramic orientalism.
Reflected and refracted natural phenomena, water, ice, northern light, kaleidoscopic caves, coalesce in paintings that are gestural and cerebral.
Paintings reminiscent of European design of the 50’s and 60’s, biomorphic motifs vie with geometric architecture and airy color combinations.
Drawn on small accordion pages of moleskin notebooks with ball point pens and assembled as larger drawings, automatic gestures build chain link veils of varying densities, like seismographic fields of mental activity.
Gallery hours are from 11am to 6pm, Tuesday through Saturday through June. *Beginning July 1st, our summer hours will be from 11am to 5pm, Tuesday through Friday. For more information please call (212) 691-6565.
