Shaking the Habitual
Shaking The Habitual
Michael Bevilacqua/ James Busby/ Jeff Elrod
Kravets Wehby Gallery is pleased to present “Shaking the Habitual” A three-person show featuring the work of Michael Bevilacqua, James Busby, and Jeff Elrod. These artists cleanse, fold, and manipulate the idea of the modernist central image in painting. They are dealing with the everyday pixelated fuzz, the chop and screw of information and culture with the desire to drown out the bombardment of imagery.
Jeff Elrod, in his new paintings, softens and erases the image in a single expanse of muteness. There is no beginning or end to his visual profundity.
James Busby has expanded the ideas of Minimalism using techniques of drawing and grid making to create mirror like surfaces pushing them into depths of extreme space and fluidity.
Michael Bevilacqua has evolved from a very graphic approach to an all out assault use of spray paint to produce his canvases. Like Kandinsky; music fuels the paintings. The artist’s evolution is not unlike the stylistic shift in music from Punk to Electronica, an evaporation of descriptive lines to the ethereal.
