Inevitable Futures Press Release


***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

Inevitable Futures

On view: December 9-29, 2010

Opening Reception: December 9, 6-9pm

Yashar Gallery - 276 Greenpoint Avenue building 8 ground floor, Brooklyn NY 11222

Encountering David Sena’s works is much like discovering a mystical document, a map pointing to the reason for human existence, or rather the outer limits, the infinite, the space not yet grasped. In the midst of voids, of what once was, and what has been removed by flame, is the substance of being. The work in Sena’s “Inevitable Futures” is mostly figurative, strictly speaking, but what these ‘drawings’ capture is at once fleeting, difficult to grasp in the very least, and infinite—death, galaxies, and the Higgs’ boson, i.e., ‘the God particle.’ Yet, taking in Sena’s work here is reminiscent of laying back upon the solid earth, damp and fragrantly fecund and looking into the fabric of the night sky and seeing layer upon layer of stars and grasping with that perspective what it is to be a tiny blip of humanity in the infinitely tiny moment of now. What is existential and massive becomes intimate and tangible in Sena’s work, the mark of fire transforms paper and the viewer into an infinite being, proof that art can transfigure, and enlighten.

Time and space are recurring tropes in Sena’s work—two concepts that are often used to ascertain if something is real. Does it exist? Do we exist? In what reality do we exist?

One feels as though the fabric of time is shifting as one examines Sena’s work, a vertigo is evoked, an existential crisis is inspired and we are transformed by looking into the abyss of the infinite. There is comfort in the nothingness, as we come to know voids intimately. Death is always looming but so is the possibility of something beyond it. There are the spaces between us that we navigate physically and theoretically and importantly, the potential of connection and understanding held within those vessels of nil, nothingness. To know our outer limits, to map where we end and infinity begins is a promise of safety, a connection to divinity, which is surely all that is unknown but glimmering at us faintly, just beyond our technology, our mental and spiritual faculties’ grasp. The questions that drive us have never been rendered so beautifully as in Sena’s work. To think the charred edge of a circular hole in paper could bring us closer to the divine—truly, there is magic in this art.

-Emily Basa Besa

Amelie Mancini featured in the Greenpoint Star


Excerpt from the Greenpoint Star:


For love of the game
by Holly Tsang

Mancini finishes up her final painting in preparation for her first solo exhibition show,  Sacrebleu! Napoleon Would Have Made A Fine Shortstop!  which opens on November 2.

Amélie Mancini is a huge baseball buff. The New York Mets fan and admirer of baseball greats Keith Hernandez, Hank Greenberg, Roger Maris and Daryl Strawberry even has a baseball-themed skin on her cell phone. When Mancini arrived stateside from France six years ago, however, the beloved American pastime was a complete mystery to her.

She picked up some old children’s books about baseball as part of her exploration of America and before long, she was hooked on the sport. The University Paris-Sorbonne graduate, who studied fine arts in college, had found the subjects of her newest series of paintings, titled Sacrebleu! Napoleon Would Have Made A Fine Shortstop!

“Athletes, particularly baseball players, are our modern-day gods and heroes like the Greeks had,” she said. “We look up to them, live through them. They can run faster and hit harder than us.”

Mancini pointed out that just because one embraces a new culture, it doesn’t mean they are getting rid of their old one. Her paintings are those of a French person trying to explore an American thing, which in this case is baseball.

“Every time you come to bat you have the opportunity to do something exceptional,” she said. “That’s sort of what America is like for expatriates.”

Sacrebleu! Napoleon Would Have Made A Fine Shortstop!’ is Mancini’s first solo show in New York City. The exhibit opens with a reception on Tuesday, November 2, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Yashar Gallery, 276 Greenpoint Avenue, Brooklyn. Visit www.ameliemancini.com for more information and to view paintings from the series.

Sacrebleu! Opens at Yashar Gallery November 2nd


Yashar Gallery is proud to present Amelie Mancini's first solo show in New York City, Sacrebleu! Napoleon Would Have Made A Fine Shortstop, a selection of seven large portraits of exceptional ballplayers. The exhibition will be opening on Tuesday, November 2, from 6 to 9. This newest series of paintings by Amelie Mancini takes its subjects from amongst some of Baseball's most talented figures: Babe Ruth, Roger Maris, Jackie Robinson, Ty Cobb, Harvey Haddix, Sandy Koufax and Tom Seaver. Each portrait is made of six small canvases assembled into a larger painting and is a study of a baseball hero at the height of his greatness, hitting a home run, pitching a perfect game, stealing home. But theirs isn't just any baseball field: it is a world of empty houses and ancient arches, built with bright acrylic paint and faux-marble, obeying primal geometry and disturbed by spatial ambiguity, ruled by legends and reveries. A French expatriate and therefore fundamentally an outsider, Amelie Mancini uses this series to probe at the quintessentially American game of baseball from a European point of view. Because she grew up without any knowledge of the game and its history, her attention is first captured by a melancholic face, a bulging bicep, a certain way to wear or lose a hat. Through free-associations and the use of motifs from other eras, she unveils a world marked by a familiar kind of eerieness and an ominous melancholy, unleashing the uncanny ghosts of great things past.

Amelie Mancini was born in Lyon, France in 1982. She studied Art at the Universite La Sorbonne in Paris and received a Master's Degree in Design and Fine Arts in 2005. She went to her first baseball game ever at Shea Stadium in 2007 (Mets lost) and has since become actively obsessed with baseball, in particular with the Metropolitan Base Ball Club of New York. She started painting amazing ballplayers in January 2010. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

David Sena in Benefit Art Show


















MATTY NO TIMES ART BENEFIT


On September 9, 2009, Matty No Times (Three Kings Tattoo) noticed that his legs had become severely swollen. He went to an emergency room and three hours later, after multiple blood tests, was informed that he was in liver failure (see details below). Now, about 8 months later, Matty is on his way back but is in severe financial debt.

A group of all star artists, including Brooklyn Art Studios own David Sena, have joined together for a remarkable show to help Matty pay off his medical expenses. The show will be at the YES Gallery (http://yesgalleryyes.com/) located at 147 India Street and Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint (Brooklyn) The exhibition will run from July 17th to July 23rd with a special opening reception on Saturday, July 17th from 5 - 10PM at YES Gallery with special Guest DJ Jesse Jones (Yuppicide).

ALL ART IS $350 OR LESS, and raffle goodies from KCDC Skate Shop, Tattoo Elite International, Waverly Color Company and more. The goal of this exhibition is not only to support Matty No Times, but to also present a spectacular array of noted artists, allowing our friends and peers, art lovers and collectors to view and obtain works that are both affordable and of exceptional quality, and to do this while we help out our friend and colleague. This is going to be an amazing, HUGE art exhibition with some incredible artists donating art. Don’t miss it!!

A Wonderful Tragic Life -
Recent Works by Megan Cedro



Monday, July 5, 2010

FEATURED ARTIST: Christopher Paquet

Christopher Paquet was born in Marlton, New Jersey, 1975. He earned an M.F.A. from Goldsmiths, London, in 2003. He was one of 16 young painters to be included in the 2007 Goldsmiths survey at the White Box gallery in New York. His work is widely collected in the United Kingdom, the United States and Europe.

Artist statement (excerpt):
“The works selected for Into the Void are investigations into the power of language. They employ a subjective departure into fantasy or hysteria as a strategy to address the forces at play behind semblance. They endeavor to explode the heroic, the pathetic, law and fairy tales alike, in the interest of understanding that which underlies human endeavor. To know language, first one must be willing to crash it into the wall. Only when we are picking through the debris of the old can we formulate the new. Each of us reaches out though the dark primordial void to become active agents in our worlds.” -Christopher Paquet

Next at Yashar Gallery...

Artist Megan Cedro was born in the southern swamplands and began her exploration of drawing during high school in New Jersey. It was at this point in time Megan crafted her signature style that has resonated throughout her entire current collection of work - drawing herself and her friends as "cartoons' in awkward teenage situations. To this day, the personal grasp for human identity and self-awareness in a constantly changing and amorphous body is the dominant motif in her work. The cartoon-like images are highly expressive, symbolic and often anthropomorphic perceptions of the people around her. While attending Fort Lauderdale's Art Institute for Fashion design, Megan's drawings took on an entirely new dimension - the once out-of-place awkward creatures became mature and beautiful beings - seamless elements of design in human form, entirely unique in their own disproportional beauty. Megan's paintings of stretched, stringy, and solemn young ladies and prophet-like portraits of men with beards composed of birds remind us of Tim Burton's early paintings of eccentric characters, mixed with a grace of Pablo Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon. Behind the expressive, large eyes of her characters a Gothic Tale of unspeakable beauty emerges. Her mademoiselles and other imaginary friends are on view at Yashar Gallery, July 9th-29th.

FLOWER POWER! Closing Reception, Wed., June 23


Flower Power! Mixed-Media Floral Art by Carla E. Reyes

Closing Reception: Wednesday, June 23, 6-9pm
On view: Thursday, June 3 - Thursday, June 24
Viewing Hours: Fridays 1-6pm and by appointment: brooklynartstudios@gmail.com

Texture Garden: Flora Series is a group of textural, mixed-media, floral paintings by Carla E. Reyes, exploring the cycles of nature and the human desire to capture and possess it. All of the paintings are inspired by actual images of man-made objects that were created from a variety of materials (clay, metal, stone, etc.) depicting a floral motif, set in a natural environment and undergoing the natural and chemical processes of aging and weathering. Carla’s artwork explores the color, texture, and character of natural and man-made surfaces, particularly in a state of change or interaction; which she finds both profound and beautiful. Flowers in particular, are cherished objects of nature that humans seek to preserve, but their seasonal appearance in nature, and short life span in unnatural environments, remind us of the fleeting and precious nature of existence. The work is meant to bring attention to the cycles of life, nature, and change, and the beauty of the processes that take place at any given moment.

Carla E. Reyes is a professional fine and decorative artist, exhibiting and selling her artwork in NYC and along the East Coast in commercial galleries, non-profit, and alternative spaces, since 2000. She received her B.F.A. in Restoration and Fine Arts from F.I.T., NYC. Carla also works as a decorative interior finisher, theater scenic artist, muralist, and art educator. Carla’s artwork has been featured in a variety of publications and media including The New York Times, The New York Daily News, BBC World News, The Queens Chronicle, and more. Her complete portfolio can be viewed at: http://www.carlaereyes.com

Flower Power! Mixed-Media Floral Art by Carla E. Reyes features new works from the Texture Garden: Flora Series, as well as other textural collage paintings from previous bodies of work that explore a floral motif or theme. The exhibition is on view from June 3 - 24, 2010 at Yashar Gallery.
