Saturday. August in early May. Space Womb hosted a reception for the compelling exhibit, "Incomplete Portrait of Chaos". The exhibition dances elegantly around the idea of chaos. Is it a formless void, the verging of human and spirit entities, or the metaphysical properties embedded in our physical selves?
Chaos suggests an unordered messiness. Yet the imaginings of these five artists are anything but. They suggest the dual nature of chaos -- that opposite side of serenity, order and equanimity. The work suggests that a concentrated effort and focus holds chaos at bay, reveals that opposite, serene side.
Stop in. Chaos is fleeting. Change is constant. Don't miss this opportunity to experience both sides of the coin, and notice the edges while you are at it. The exhibit closes on Mother's Day.
Art is the language of the human spirit. It is as old as our earliest civilizations. Art is a language that is also universal -- it speaks to us no matter what words articulate our thoughts. Living with art that not only reflects our vision but also expands our spirit is essential. The call and response of the human spirit is amplified through artwork. Come out. Look. Bring your check book. Buy art, buy local.
From the 20th Century forward, there has been a lot of hoopla around the art market. Some people spend a great deal of energy creating hoopla on the theory that wherever that wild energy is, people will be attracted to it. NYC is the center for much hoopla in the art market. However, I feel a bit differently. Empowering people to begin their own collections -- whether a private or business-based collection, is the main goal. We are interested in supporting people new to collecting to follow their own instincts, to figure out what appeals to them outside of all the hoopla. The best way to begin is to look at a lot of art.
The galleries mentioned above cover a wide range of aesthetic territory from beautiful landscapes to conceptual and abstract work. Finding art to fit your vision is a very personal process. It's also an essential action. There is every imaginable style, process and idea out in the marketplace these days, and yes, that wide range is available LOCALLY.
