From Sept 11th through Oct 2nd, 2010.
Diana Lowenstein Fine Arts presents two new exhibitions on September 11th during the Wynwood Art District Second Saturday Gallery Walk. Alejandra Padilla’s Reformas in the gallery’s main room, and Charles Clary’s Fermatic Pandemic in the project room.
Alejandra Padilla | Reformas
“There is much to celebrate in such a relationship, the gaze must follow erratic movements, causing perception to create the drawing. One sees something seemingly specific, and then realizes that this is not the case, that is not what it was and moreover is nothing at all or many things, there are abstract elements, but they come from images that are not, or the abstraction creates recognizable images. Appearance is one aspect, and it relates to a whole that simultaneously combines multiplicities. There is accumulation as well as alteration. The territory that establishes itself is deceiving. The unique technique makes the art recognizable, both individually, and as a body of work.” – Patricia Rizzo
Alejandra Padilla was born in Argentina, where she continues to live and work. She has participated in solo and group exhibitions internationally since 1994 and has received numerous awards.
Project Room: Charles Clary’s Fermatic Pandemic
I use paper to create a world of fiction that challenges the viewer to suspend disbelief and venture into my fabricated reality. By layering paper I am able to build intriguing land formations that mimic viral colonies and concentric sound waves. These strange landmasses contaminate and infect the surfaces they inhabit transforming the space into something suitable for their gestation. Towers of paper and color jut into the viewer’s space inviting playful interactions between the viewer and this conceived world. These constructions question the notion of viral outbreaks, transforming it into something more playful and inviting.
Charles Clary recently earned his MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design. His work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and has been featured in publications both here and abroad.
