Viridian Artists Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of seven interesting artists that have joined us over the past two years. The diversity of their work will bring a fresh and unique show for you to enjoy.

Chris Bathgate is a very unusual artist whose use of metal is neither structural nor illusionistic.  His process resembles that of an engineer, using mathematical techniques with brass, aluminum, and stainless steel that ultimately emerges as one compact sculpture.

Arthur Dworin unleashes a rainbow of vibrant color creating a luminosity and sense of atmosphere. His abstract paintings adapt the organic and constantly moving forms in nature to a series of ever-changing and intermingling swirls of nuanced color. 

Namiyo Kubo, who lives in Tokyo, delivers splendid transformations from Japanese paintings to Modern abstract forms using traditional Japanese media such as rice paper, ink or gold leaf. These are fragile, disintegrating, and replaceable materials, which bring concerns about today’s fragility and impermanence of life.  Kubo’s other art forms have been her giant murals in diverse locations around the world.

Robert Mielenhausen combines photographs with painting and mixed media, layered with glue and polyurethane. Mielenhausen The artist's selection of recent work explores aspects of ancient Roman architecture. These heavily textured sculptural reliefs depict a world now forgotten. Visual parallels are drawn between ancient sensibilities and modern design. Materials of wood, plaster, acrylic paint, and found objects are used in creating these stunning pieces.

Deborah Sudran’s paintings express a strong emotional response to nature, with a fascination with its varied patterns and colors. She moves in close to a particular image, and isolates it from its surroundings so that a horizon line is not seen.

Judith Tummino is a painter of the landscape, having spent a decade traveling to Italy to paint the light which is like no other. She attempts to capture the essence of the moment in terms of tonal planes while seeking to find their relationship to one another in the landscape

James Umland has a background in abstract music, having formerly worked with John Cage and other   musicians who used his drawings as scores. He is a minimalist artist who believes that by using simple, computer-generated tones that follow the lines as they move up and down the grid, he has reduced his concept to its essence.

Don Zurlo begins to visualize the creative process as a combination of accident, intuition and rational decisions. With the colored fields of Rothko, the lines of Twombly, and blasts of Gottlieb like forms, Zurlo has found a voice of his own. His  paintings are a symphony of inspiring abstractions.
