- Additional Information -
VIDEOLAND ART SPACE is pleased to announce its sixth exhibition of the year guest curated by Jeff Gleich of Sixth@Prince Fine Art. The opening is on Thursday October 14, 7 - 9 pm.
The exhibition hosts six contemporary painters, inspired by science and technology, who work abstractly in acrylic, enamel, resin, ink and vinyl, fusing together tension and time. Hence, the organic and digital like works in this exhibition ride the double meaning of the word "tense."
see Hunt, David. "In Tense," Time Out New York, November 4-11, 1999. Issue No.215, p.68
In tense suggests stress and strain, as in several works, the paint or ink expands to reach all sides of the canvas or paper, creating a physical tension, pulling or stretching tightly and on occasion, whipping back to a coiled state. The artists stretch the surface, the depth, the color and content to the point of eruption, explosion and equilibrium and the viewer gets to witness the work’s infinity.
In tense exists in the past, present and future simultaneously, because one cannot determine when the action takes place. It is abstraction with non-linear movement through time: past, present and future layered, reduced or intertwined. All the works in In tense reflect an undefined evolution of time, as if inventing a tense that expresses the time of its action, now, then, tomorrow and infinitely combined.
VIDEOLAND ART SPACE occupies a former video store on the Lower Eastside in New York City at 174 Attorney Street (319 East Houston Street near Avenue B).
Exhibition hours are Thursday through Sunday 1 - 6 pm.
Visuals are available for print reproduction.
