Painting & Endeavors

New York City Exhibition at The Painting Center, 19 July - 13 August, 2016

Added on by John Biebel.

I'm very excited to announce a new exhibit of works at The Painting Center in New York City from mid-July to mid-August 2016. The show is titled Imaginary Portraits and Remembered Cities, and will feature recent works from 2015 and '16. Works presented are culled from his series of imaginary portraits and city abstractions, creating a dialog between spaces and the people that inhabit them. From the gallery's press release:

The portraits and landscapes reveal a mythical world that feels somewhat close to our own, but which is enlivened through the wandering mind, where figures blossom out of their humbleness, and cities undulate in shimmering reflections. Biebel uses a wide range of pictorial language in these works, floating between painterly chiaroscuros, to graphic print-like effects, to achieve a state of flux where solid objects seem to be in a state of humming motion.

You can read the full press release at The Painting Center website. The exhibition dates are Monday, July 19th - Saturday, August 13th, 2016. The opening reception is on Thursday, July 21st from 6 pm to 8 pm.

The Painting Center is located at 547 West 27th Street, Suite 500, New York, NY 10001, tel: 212 343 1060, and is open Tuesday - Saturday, 11:00 am - 6 pm.
