DESCRIPTION

Press Release for ROME, Exhibition by Robert Mielenhausen

Viridian Artists Inc. May 17, - June 4, 2011

 

Chelsea, NYC. Viridian Artists Inc. is pleased to announce ROME, an exhibition of mixed-media

reliefs by the artist Robert Mielenhausen.The exhibition opens Tuesday, May 17. and continues

through Saturday, June 4. There will be a reception on Saturday, May 21st 4-7pm. The artist

will give a talk on his work Thursday, June 2, 6-7pm.

This latest body of work explores architectural remains of ancient Rome. The artist ingeniously

conjures fragments of temples, villas, and scenographic walls scattered throughout the Italian

peninsula. Viridian’s space is transformed to a sumptuous  departure in time. The pieces are

derived  by photographs taken and  gathered while in Italy. His works depict visual elements and

rhythms found in Roman art and architecture. The compositions investigate spatial relations,

textures, and atmospheric light which set the stage for western art to follow.”Villa Poppea”, a

prominent work of the group recently published in the  April 3rd issue of The New York Times is

imbued with solidity and decay. The theme of impermanence is reflected throughout the

exhibition. Mielenhausen’s intent  is to interpret by means of construction and deconstruction

what has come before in a contemporary manner. The art embraces both the literal as well as

the abstract. It gives the contemporary viewer a fresh look at the ancient world. It steps outside

the realms of trend and sensationalism.
