LuminArte Presents: No Body, No Evidence, Right?
We are hard-wired to find the human form in everything that we see, finding figures in the clouds or faces in a burned piece of toast. People strive to find a narrative in a non-objective artwork as a means of grounding their experience and relating the image to something physical or recognizable. In LuminArte’s first exhibition of 2015, “No Body, No Evidence, Right?” we explore the ethereal universe of the abstract artist and examine the connection between art and emotion. We analyze whether there is evidence of existence within abstraction or if it is merely a spontaneous reaction to materials. In this eclectic and energetic exhibition, internationally recognized artists like Ron Burkhardt, Irene Neal, Puneeta Mittal, Robin Antar, Paul Lorenz, Keiko Gonzalez, Gina Rossi, John and Elli Milan, Durand Seay, Shawn Man Roland, Carmelo Midili, Bonnie Teitelbaum, Diane Sanborn, Joe MacGown, Cristina de Castro and Steve Smith combine with Texas talent, including Elizabeth Schowachert, Michael Broussard, Antoaneta Hillman, Leanne Venier, Trent Mann, Judith Seay and Awadh Baryoum to challenge the imagination and to inspire reflection on the intangible.
The exhibition opens on January 24th from 7-10PM and runs through March 14th. Several artists will be in attendance in the opening reception; and both the reception and exhibition are free and open to the public. There will also be a sneak preview of the upcoming figurative exhibition, “Mnemosyne.”
