Afternoon on Fall Fields - 2011
oil on canvas
12 x 24 in. (30.5 x 61 cm)

In this most recent work in oil and in works on paper, Bart Elsbach continues his exploration of the forms of the landscape. With varying degrees of abstraction, he studies the simplified forms of nature and how they are assembled into the complex relations we see as landscapes. The drawings and paintings display a range of complexity and simplification in their compositions, layering of pigment and rendering of forms. All the images are tied to the landscape as they move back and forth between abstraction of and adherence to the referent.

Empire State - 2009
oil on canvas
63.75 x 63.75 in. (162 x 162 cm

In his current exhibition, Moya dives into the relations between man and different architectonical environments. From cathedral to a library or a skyscraper, buildings in these works act as symbol of human being and his relation with the world. The achievement of a specific atmosphere through the material, prevails over a more photographical realism.

Snapline (execution in sheetrock) - 2010
sheetrock, old two by fours
8 w x 6.5 h ft. (2.5 x 2 meters)

Poindexter sets in motion four simultaneous currents, conjoined by related physicality and named according to material: cable and beam; paint as material; old and new (de) construction; and organics. The artist's keen spatial sense enables these abstract forms to engage with the wall they inhabit; chaos is separated out to illuminate the power and beauty of the material.

Extra Fancy - 2010
acrylic alkyd on panel
30 x 30 in. (76 x 76 cm)

The stylized forms and characters depicted in each of the paintings of this series are developed through a process of spontaneous drawing and erasing directly on the painting substrate using charcoal. The drawing continues without any preconceived notion of what the final outcome should or will be until something jumps out that's worth pursuing as a finished painting. The layers of charcoal leave scars and artifacts on the surface which are purposely left in the final painting to become a part of the apparent narrative. Though there is a decidedly humorous aspect to the work, the humor is more ambient in nature than direct or blatantly comic.

My Rectangular Space 10-6 - 2010
wood, paint, gloss
7.5 x 10 x 3.5 in. (19 x 25 x 9 cm)

These enigmatical geometric constructions are composed of sections and layers of wood block, attached to each other at unpredictable angles and result in forms that are at once seemingly organic, crystalline and tightly controlled. Each work appears to grow out of the wall like a naturally-forming ornamental abstraction.
