Exhibitions:

Eddy López: Remixes

July 6 – Sept. 8, 2018
Reception: Friday, Sept. 7, 5-9 p.m.
Gallery Talk: 5:30 p.m.

As a printmaker, my work uses big data, averaging algorithms, and 500-year-old printmaking techniques to create compositions that try to find beauty in a chaotic world. By layering together what Lawrence Lessig calls wide-scale collages, I amalgamate historical, mythological, political, and religious imagery. These composites compress the originals into abstractions of vibrant colors, patterns, and shapes. In these juxtapositions, I explore the intricacies of my contemporary experience as an artist; where, in the age of big data, social networks, Photoshop, and the 24-hour news cycle, the burin, ink, and pixel make the most sense.

Eddy López

Born in Matagalpa, Nicaragua, in the midst of the Sandinista revolution, Eddy A. López is an artist whose composite prints layer historical, mythological, and religious themes. López’s artwork has been exhibited in various group and solo exhibitions across the United States and internationally, from the North American Print Biennial, Art Miami, Art Palm Beach, to shows in Colombia and Egypt, among other countries. His work can be found in various public and private collections, including the Frost Art Museum, Jaffe Center for Book Arts, Zuckerman Museum of Art, Universidad de Caldas, and El Minia University, Cairo.

Amer Kobaslija: Spirit of Place

Sept. 14 – Oct. 26, 2018
Reception: Friday, Sept. 14, 5-9 p.m.
Gallery Talk: 5:30 p.m.

For me, growing up in pre-war Bosnia and during the tumultuous years of civil war, and then entering adulthood living in exile, art offered a means of connecting to the outside world. I am driven as an artist to respond visually to what I am experiencing. A sense of wonder about the mysteries and complexity of the world in which we live fuels my art. I seek to recognize how extraordinary everything is.

Amer Kobaslija

Spirit of Place features small-scale older, tightly executed oil paintings of Kobaslija's cluttered art studios from a bird’s eye view, along with recent landscapes inspired by travels to Florida, Japan and Switzerland. Painted in oil, the seemingly idyllic scenes are charged with turbulent histories. The Japan paintings describe the devastation caused by the massive tsunami that struck the northeastern coast of the country in 2011. Meditations on history, environmental issues and the ongoing refugee crisis are underlying currents charging the work and coloring the viewer’s perception – the context defines the narrative.

Originally from Banjaluka in Bosnia, Amer Kobaslija fled his war-ravaged homeland in 1993 to a refugee camp in Nuremberg, Germany. In 1997, he was offered asylum by the United States. A 2013 Guggenheim Fellow for painting, Kobaslija has had more than twenty solo exhibitions in Paris, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New Orleans. The monograph Amer Kobaslija: Places, Spaces was published to accompany a traveling exhibition of his work. Kobaslija's paintings have been reviewed in The New York Times, Art in America, and ARTNews.

Paul Fabozzi: Place|Translation|Variation

Jan 25 – Feb. 23, 2019
Reception: Jan. 25, 5-9 p.m.
Gallery Talk: 5:30 p.m.

As a visual artist, I seek to serve as a receptor, processor, visualizer, and locator of the cities and spaces we inhabit. As an observer of contemporary global society, I am acutely aware of the multimodality and multitemporality of my experience of the present. While wandering in New York, Rome, Istanbul, Rio de Janeiro, London and Berlin, I am drawn to specific buildings as points of confluence for my urban drifting. Architectural forms manifest various ideals—formal, symbolic, functional. I find myself inside places designed for worship, entertainment, material consumption, contemplation, transportation, and governance. The paintings and drawings in this exhibition are a tactile and visual record of my intuitive reckoning with these spaces—offering an opportunity to reflect on the ways in which bodily experience is overlaid at every turn with informational and mental pulsations.
