John Thomas - Using geometric layers and overlapping fields of color, the works of John Thomas broaden the realm of non-objective painting. Their restrained elegance and understated simplicity mask an enigmatic sensuality that reveals itself slowly under examination.
Daybreak Disturbance - 2008
acrylic on aluminum
6 x 8 feet (183 x 244 cm)
David Kessler - Painting precisionist water landscapes on aluminum which he has abraded with wire brushes, the artist creates an image that is produced partially by paint and partially by refracted light. The resulting surface has an almost holographic effect, giving the appearance of movement in the water surface as the painting is viewed from different angles. These large-scale works are painted from intimate close-up images of calm or rippled water surfaces and range from realism to abstraction.
071807 - 2007
acrylic on canvas
24 x 24 inches (61 x 61 cm)
Stan Wiederspan - A fascination with cardboard as a material and with boxes as forms has inspired Stan Wiederspan to produce a series of "portraits" of boxes. The result is not a mere rendition of a utilitarian container, but becomes far more expressive and iconographic.
Deconstruction 17th Street - 2007
16 x 20 inches (40.5 x 51 cm)
Lilyan Aloma - The images in this body of work are a reflection of the artist’s ongoing interest in the urban environment and commerce's influence on our visual gestalt. It is an attempt to resolve the tension created by the over-development of a city.
Palimpsest - 2004
gouache and pencil on found paper
14.5 x 12 inches (37 x 30.5 cm)
Doug Navarra - In these drawings the artist starts with found paper documents and responds by adding his own marks, as “interventions” that set up a dialogue with the linear quality of the penmanship, original marginalia, and the stains and tears that have accumulated over the centuries. When his own personal history is added to a 200 year-old piece of paper, it transforms the context of the page from a minor historical record into a work of contemporary, visual documentation.
