Summer In South Park (Again)
June 6 – July 27
Opening Reception: Wednesday, June 6, 2012, 5:30 - 7:30 PM
Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce Summer In South Park (Again), a group exhibition featuring new work by John Belingheri, Jamie Brunson, Albert Dicruttalo, Wynne Hayakawa, Gordon Huether, Kim Squaglia, and others, with an opening reception held on Wednesday, June 6 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.
“I work with a mix of oil paint, alkyd medium and refined beeswax on canvas stretched over panel, building up saturated chromatic surfaces to suggest an infinite field extending beyond the plane of the canvas.”
Jamie Brunson’s process draws from a level of consciousness and presence she reaches during her practice of kundalini meditation. Kundalini meditation focuses on rhythmic, cyclical breathing that allows for unfocused seeing and deep concentration, which Brunson visually translates in her lattice paintings. Her forms and painting process mirror the sensory phenomena Brunson experiences during meditation, blurring, vibration, spatial depth, dispersion, and radiance. Brunson judges the successfulness of her painting by their ability to evoke the sense of expansion and connection in their audience.
“My work explores the use of repeated forms to create a dynamic composition that presents itself as an exhibition of paradoxes.
In his sculptures, Albert Dicruttalo exhibits the elegance and beauty of industrial materials. His work is compromised of stacked geometric forms that grow in size as the sculpture moves upward. The aluminum construction of Dicruttalo’s work presents an interesting contradiction; the sculptures are, at one perspective, dense and at another, delicate. The result is a form that is complex and compelling.
