Priska C. Juschka Fine Art is pleased to announce BIG PICTURE, a group exhibition curated by Tom Sanford and Ryan Schneider, literally comprised of predominately large-scale paintings by a generation of New York based artists, who have emerged over the past decade. The title, while referring to subject matter and visual capacity, also articulates clearly the artists’ own personal ambitions and intentions.

The curators, Sanford and Schneider, define the exhibition as a collective survey of nineteen representational painters, working in the New York City area and linked by their own virtuous handling of their medium while taking advantage of the vastness of their surroundings and the open-endedness of a repertoire of cultural references. By finding inspiration in universal themes such as love, sex and death as well as in the reality of their personal experience, their work demonstrates the eclectic style of a generation versatile in blending categories such as academic painting and pop culture with juxtaposing techniques such as classic paint application and mixed media collage.

At first sight, the works ostensibly differ in aesthetic and visual tonality, evoking a dissonant ambience, expressive in color and expansive with gesture, simultaneously seductive and destructive — they linger in the viewer’s consciousness long after the first impression.

While reflecting a contrasting artistic vocabulary, the individual paintings interact conceptually, insisting in commonality and commanding a shared synergy reminiscent of the Gestalt theory — whereby the entire show pronounces a bigger picture and perspective, rising above the summary of its parts.
