AlsSat-Jan30-WilliamTurner-JimGleason-Untitled-BRONZE-2015-silverdepositandacryliconcanvaso at Bergamot…

The William Turner Gallery is pleased to announce our upcoming solo exhibition, Jimi Gleason : Surface and Light. Jimi Gleason’s paintings are enigmatic. They emphasize seductive surfaces, which reveal no trace of traditional paint application.

See image: Untitled (BRONZE), 2015, silver deposit and acrylic on canvas, 72″ x 60″

These mysterious surfaces are highly reactive to light, position and viewer – acting as catalysts for shifting perceptions. They are immediately understandable as paintings, though it’s difficult to imagine how they were created. Through the use of non-traditional materials and luminescent silver deposit, Gleason creates works that inspire an intimate reflection on the essence of how we perceive and experience the world around us.

Rero will curate the group exhibition, bringing together a collective of artists from different backgrounds, all working to create a discourse across boundaries.

See image: OX, Strapped Cloud, wood and straps, 39 x 53 in. (100x135cm) 2015

This exhibition centers around artists who challenge the idea of boundaries within art, both physical and ideological borders. Each artist presents new work for TRANSBORDER, examining the transitory elements of shape, color, form, and context within art making. The group exhibition takes a survey of how the language of both abstraction and figurative form can be conveyed throughout vastly different corners of the world. Across borders of both time and space, these artists have created connectivity and conversation through creation.

Or Head West ….

Trunk Gallery presents the work of artist Lee Ann Goya (aka Leebs) in “Attune: the lyrical world of Leebs,” an exhibition of art that is as much a product of music as of imagination.

Sat-Jan30-TRUNKGallery-Kazoo sitting in front of muralSee image: Leebs, Kazoo sitting in front of mural
Leebs’ artwork is pure, free form expressionism originating from her mind and spirit while listening to bebop and jazz music (Charles Mingus, Ornette Coleman, Sonny Rollins, Clifford Brown, to name a few). Her movements, while she works, “seem to be guided by the energy of the music.” This energy is evident in the pictorial compositions. The work also flaunts a playfulness, figuratively and literally – vivid exploding colors; paint that is smeared or splashed; numbers and symbols that are scrawled, carved or written; the use of feathers, fringe and wire; (and one of her latest creations) a remote-control ‘art-critter-mobile.’
