Memory of Place: Frank Poor & Thomas Doyle @ Flinn Gallery at Greenwich Library Tickets

Memory of Place: Frank Poor & Thomas Doyle @ Flinn Gallery at Greenwich Library |  |  |

If These Walls Could Talk
On Thursday, Sept. 7, Flinn Gallery will launch their 2017-18 season with an opening reception for the exhibit, Memory of Place: Frank Poor & Thomas Doyle.
Curators Fereshteh Priou and Claudia Schipper have thoughtfully paired the work of two very different artists who share a fascination for architecture. The show is based on the concept of Time, Place and Memory. Each artist addresses, in his own way, the import and fragility of structures which house more than our physical selves, they contain some of our most important memories. The exhibit explores the meaning of a place, its effect on our memories and our imaginations, and the unsettling idea of displacement.

The wall texts, consisting mostly of quotes by famous authors about time, place and memory, add a reflective slant which enhances the experience for the viewer

Frank Poor, a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, wanders the rural south photographing local architecture that has been impacted by the population boom. Poor transfers his images of homes and businesses onto Plexiglas and, working with aluminum and wood veneer, he assembles the pieces into three-dimensional structures. In the gallery, the buildings appear ethereal and somewhat dislocated, separated as they are from their history and context. Poor’s pieces are like an homage to a time and place that has disappeared from rural communities.

Thomas Doyle, a graduate of Humboldt State University in California, constructs miniature worlds which tend to elicit unbidden memories. Doyle’s intimately scaled works, often displayed under glass domes, distort reality as if one were looking through a warped and dream-like lens. Suburban New England homes and families’ interactions around them are frozen in time. Ready to topple into sinkholes or pushed to the brink, these environments and those who dwell in them are both oddly familiar and ominous. The narrative remains ambiguous and viewers must tease out their own stories.

In contrast to Doyle’s compressed domestic worlds, Poor’s are larger and modern in execution. Both deal with the slippery relationship between our experience of the world and the way we sift and color it in our recollections.

EVENTS:
Thursday Sept. 7th, 6-8 pm.
The public is invited to attend the opening reception for Memory of Place.

Sunday Sept. 10th at 2pm: Artists Talk
Frank Poor & Thomas Doyle will discuss their artwork and creative process during an artists’ talk in Flinn Gallery.

Sunday Oct. 1st, 2-4 pm
 – an author’s talk in the gallery on, author Lauren Acampora will read selections from her book of short stories, “The Wonder Garden,” which is about a fictional suburb where the perfect houses pose a stark contrast to the inhabitants’ eccentricities, obsessions and personal battles. The book was named one of the best books of the year by Amazon and NPR and its subject matter neatly parallels the themes of this exhibition.

Flinn Gallery is a not-for-profit and volunteer-run gallery featuring 6 art exhibits annually in all mediums from a wide range of periods, visions and techniques. Artwork is for sale and commissions from sales support the programs of the Friends of Greenwich Library.

Flinn Gallery is open daily Mon-Sat 10-5, Thurs. until 8, and Sun. 1-5. Flinn Gallery, Greenwich Library, 2nd floor, 101 W. Putnam Ave., Greenwich CT 06830, tel. (203) 622-7947. Free and open to the public. Free parking is available.

Carmel Artist Opens Solo Show in Greenwich @ Les Beaux Arts Gallery at Round Hill Community Church Tickets

Carmel Artist Opens Solo Show in Greenwich @ Les Beaux Arts Gallery at Round Hill Community Church |  |  |

Ukrainian artist, Taras Borovyk, will open his exhibition of oil paintings, My Journey Through Colors, at Les Beaux Arts Gallery on Sunday, September 10. The exhibit will run through Thursday, October 19, 2017.

Living in the United States since 1997, Borovyk has applied the rich background of his Lviv art education and his experience as a muralist for elegant homes and commercial environments. His early paintings bear his Ukrainian soul with their strong vibrant colors and shadowy figures. In recent years, his style shifted to become more abstracted and decorative. “I do not create art unless it creates itself as I work,” Taras explains. “It could be anything. It is like a ghost that appears when I pick up the brush. Whether I see a doorway or a still life that is abstracted in my view, or remember a piece of music that takes shape on canvas. It guides me through as it develops.”

In addition to his work as muralist, Borovyk has had multiple solo exhibitions and been highlighted in group shows in New York, Chicago, and Ukraine, since 2000. 

Les Beaux Arts Gallery is located in the Round Hill Community Church, 395 Round Hill Road, Greenwich. The Gallery is open Sunday, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.; Monday thru Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.; closed Saturday. #TarasBorovyk #Ukraine

“Paradigm Shifts” @ Heather Gaudio Fine Art Tickets
Sep 14 – Nov 25 all-day
"Paradigm Shifts" @ Heather Gaudio Fine Art |  |  |

Heather Gaudio Fine Art is pleased to announce “Paradigm Shifts,” a group exhibition featuring paintings by Charles Arnoldi, Ricardo Mazal and Manuel Mérida. The show opens on September 14th with a reception for the artists from 5-7pm, and will run through November 25th.

The artists in this exhibition explore the potential of painting as a medium, challenging its normative paint application and structure. Whether selecting pigments in their primordial form, applying them with non-traditional tools, or presenting irregular supports, these artists break with convention all-the-while maintaining an aesthetic foothold in modernism.

About the artists:

Charles Arnoldi has had a decades-long distinguished career as an artist investigating the formal aspects of paintings and sculpture. Shapes, color, and proportion are motifs he continually revisits in his work, suggesting architectural elements or forms seen in nature, such as tropical plant life. The show will feature Arnoldi’s geometric abstractions, colorful balances of rigid grids containing gestural arcs. Some of these compositions are disrupted by the non-uniform shapes of his canvases. Arnoldi paints on individual panels and later assembles them, at times leaving them un-aligned and making way for gaps and irregular edges. The nature of the hard-edged geometric compositions becomes more apparent with the play between the foreground and background and their spatial relationships. A numerous award recipient, Arnoldi has been featured in many international exhibitions and his work is extensively collected in private, corporate and public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, The Menil Collection, Houston, and the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena.

Ricardo Mazal explores themes of spirituality in his abstract paintings, using vibrant colors and refined, minimal forms that can have smooth or finely textured surfaces. Mazal achieves these effects with an unorthodox pigment application, using rubber tipped blades or carved out grooves on the tips of paintbrushes. Starting with photography in what he defines to be the bridge between reality and abstraction, Mazal manipulates digital imagery to arrive at his sketches. Some canvases have grid compositions with contrasting palettes, creating a formal balance of tension and harmony. These geometric abstractions draw from Mazal’s personal investigations of sacred burial rituals in various cultures across the globe. The Bhutan series references colorful prayer flags bestowing their blessings to the wind in the region. Other paintings in the show recall the terrain of national parks outside his home in Santa Fe, geological strata that have been carved out of the bedrock over the ages. A leading artist from Mexico, Mazal has been featured in many exhibitions in the Americas, Asia and Europe and his work is included in the permanent collections of Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Maeght Foundation in Paris, among others.

Manuel Mérida is another artist who originally hailed from Latin America before moving to Paris where he currently resides. His work does not conform to the traditional notion that painting is an oil on canvas. Instead, he presents brightly colored pigments in their primal form: powder. These monochromatic colors are encased in a round frame set to rotate at a steady, consistent speed, causing the powdered pigment to move. The work is in perpetual motion, creating new gestures of forms, light, shadow and space that continually shift and are never the same. Mérida was greatly influenced by contemporary kinetic and constructivist artists such as Jesús Rafael Soto, Julio Le Parc and Lygia Clark whom he met when he emigrated to France in the late 1960s. However, he considers himself to be a gestural painter rather than a kinetic artist. Mérida has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Latin America and Europe and his work is in many collections including the Museo de Bellas Artes in Caracas.
