August 20th – September 10th, 2010
Opening Reception: Friday, August 20th, 8-11pm
Medicine Agency Gallery presents Transformative Illuminations, a solo exhibition from New York City-based artist Matt Mignanelli. Mignanelli's work was recently featured in the Awesome Number One Big Fun Group Show! at Meds, while simultaneously nearly selling out a solo exhibition at Recoat Gallery in Glasgow, Scotland.
Matt Mignanelli was born in 1983 in Providence, RI. He received his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. Mignanelli’s work has been exhibited and collected extensively throughout the United States and Europe. In 2010 he lectured at Parsons School of Design in New York City and at the Art Director’s Club of Tulsa, Oklahoma. His work has been profiled in Beautiful/Decay, Juxtapoz, HypeBeast.com, FecalFace.com and Gudberg Magazine (Germany). His work has also appeared in GQ (U.K.), Dazed & Confused, and Transworld Skateboarding.
Transformative Illuminations features Mignanelli’s trademark juxtaposition of organic and geometric forms painted in complex vibrant hues. The seriousness of this exploration has been further developed, focusing on the interaction of light within the spaces. His inspiration is drawn from energy, pattern, light, and emotion. Some of the shapes are discernable objects while others are a composition of structural elements and organic forms, altering the viewer’s perception of dimensional space.
The show features a range of new paintings on birch panel, canvas, and paper. Join us on Friday August 20th at 8pm. Cocktails will be provided by Blue Angel Vodka.
