 BERNICE FAEGENBURG  

"Iris a la Warhol and …"

April 24- May 12, 2012

Opening reception, Saturday, April 28, 2-5pm

 

Chelsea: Viridian Artists Inc. is pleased to present the exhibition “"Iris a la Warhol" by artist BERNICE FAEGENBURG. The show opens April 24th and continues through May 12, 2012.  In celebration, a special reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, April 28th, 3:00-6:00pm.

A graduate of the Tyler School of Fine Arts of Temple University, Bernice Faegenburg is an artist committed to experimentation and incorporation, constantly learning new creative skills that include egg tempera, Japanese brush painting, photo transferring and a variety of methods of printmaking. Her most recent addition is digital photography printed on canvas which she then alters by hand.

 In addition to being fascinated with process, Faegenburg's art evolves out of her travels & life experiences. This predominately new body of work is informed both by Warhol's silkscreens and the skies of Puerto Rico.  In a recent trip there, the artist found herself enthralled by the constantly changing skies and cloud formations, returning with a multitude of images.

Faegenburg has always been an artist who roams media, using all that is at her disposal. Adding digital photography to her already extensive repertoire, she captured images of the cloud filled skies of PR, cropping, altering the color and even adding paint when moved to do so. These photographic images on canvas of cloud filled skies have been juxtaposed with silk screen images of irises, recreating an illusion of the lush landscape of a tropical island in the confines of a Chelsea gallery.

 Faegenburg most often works in a triptik format but in this exhibition, she juxtaposes the clouds & the irises in distinctly separate formats, constructing a sensation of sky & ground through the positioning of the works on the gallery walls.  As a result the viewer is immersed in the landscape as if they were actually there, but in two dimensions, not three.
