Hi Pauper’s Grave

Artist/Type of Exhibit : Anton Belardo

Date : Feb 11, 2017

Time : 6PM

“I draw inspiration in my work from popular expressions found in art, current events as well as in music – namely hip-hop and jazz. Like music, the images form on the surface emanating from an abstract source sprinkled with the subconscious. The forms produced are malleable and interchangeable the way language functions as a carrier of ideas and experiences. Picture-making therefore is one way to interweave all these contexts allowing me to explore and play with both content and form. In my current work, the pictorial space has a sense of being cramped as if dictated by a crisis at hand (holding a brush). The surface is cacophonic with complex players involved in chromatic gestural episodes, textured meta-narratives, time-based tonal developments, and a free associative composition in harmony with the contemporaneous moment. The crisis – capitalism in limbo after “hitting the fan” – affects the personal to the societal leaving us to confront its claustrophobic ramifications.”

Within You Without You

Artist/Type of Exhibit : Jose Gabriel Naguiat

Date : Jan 14, 2017

Time : 6PM

These artifacts are nothing but acrylic spraypaint applied to a primed cotton canvas, stretched onto pieces of assembled wood. Only through one’s perception are they given an opportunity to reveal themselves —much like how something as mundane as the clouds in the sky can manifest into majestic, glorious visions or stir up subtle layers of nameless emotion.

These paintings communicate through relationships. How one color placed next to another can give birth to a third. How certain tints and shades can bring lightness or darkness to the ones around it. How a sharply defined edge renders shape and direction to a smoky, formless haze. How bumps and scratches on an otherwise smooth surface inflicts indelible depth through the influence of light and shadow. And finally, how the viewer relates to all these elements pieced together.

Ultimately, these pieces only really exist within you. Without you, they are as indifferent and forgettable as the strangers you come across in everyday life.
