Closing event: 27th November 2010, 3pm-5.00pm
Curator’s tips and impressions on the exhibition:
This exhibition calls and releases a special energy, allows creativity to glow under a sunset atmosphere.
Artists showcase their works in two small galleries of Gallery4allarts.
In Gallery 2, along Fanchon Frohlich’ s abstract canvases, entitled ‘Tianenmen Square 5’ and 6, depicting ‘Death’ as an symbolic interpretation of ‘Sunset’, Jaqueline Mckenzie’ s works (manipulated digital prints on acrylic) stage mystical and dramatic landscapes after sunset, in fact, she casts the moon shadow over lakes and remote woodland. Among these, Josephine Jennings’ oil paintings, induce a moving perspective with ‘Landscapes with wall 1 and 2’ where under gorgeous skies, the stillness of a ‘wall’, suddenly turns into a moving train and the painting ‘echoes’ the sound of a fast train.
Japanese artist, Nagachoo, while through his oil painting depicts ‘Goodness’/ ‘Tykanbee’ in Japanese hiragana writing, introduces his new energetic and floating ‘circle spirits’ and a dream sequence by using his wellknown technique: a combination of traditional phyrography technique and Japanese ink on wood.
Further, you meet up with ‘Raindrops in the Morning rain’ by artist Nicole Bartos, where traditional and experimental painting techniques on paper, reveal colour intensity under a coat of wax , that not just seals but extends space, dimension and invites in the ‘tactile’ sense.
Aligned on the floor, stand digital photographs of walking ‘Shadows’, in glowing sunsets and sunny days, again by Nicole Bartos.
Gisele Nzolameso’s video performance ‘Dance of Hope’ is delightfully filmed from a close and an above perspective, and though only presented on a small monitor, has a strong impact as you walk in the gallery.
Bartos’ s ‘Capturing threads of Light’ cycle of canvases is showcased in the front room of Gallery 2, and invites audience to meditate on this allusive idea of peacefulness through colour.
In Gallery 1, Neil Physaclklea’s abstract ceramics are exhibited along, Daniel John’s paintings and Nicole Bartos’s ‘Rhythms: Sequencies from Sunrise to Sunset”, forming a musical harmonic line.
Opposite Italian artist’, Ada Villa, ‘Untitled’ painting, expressing loneliness and renounciation or failed communication, the abstract canvas ‘Collective Phenomena’ by Fanchon Frohlich and Nagachoo (Japan), welcomes the audience arriving in this gallery. Below, Terry Sullivan’s collagraphs stand out with uniqueness and abstract meaning.
These are just a few of the works on show. Join us for a full perspective until the 27th of November 2010.
