Urban Impressionism "Afternoon Tea" Closing Reception, Sat. 11/16, 12-3pm


Urban Impressionism: Mixed-Media Art + Photography by Carla E. Reyes, Jeremiah Gregory, Robert Lobe, and Erik Savage
On view at Yashar Gallery, November 1- 22, 2013

Closing Reception: 
Saturday, November 16, 12:00pm-3:00pm

Urban Impressionism is a series of abstract, mixed-media works of art created by Brooklyn based artist Carla E. Reyes, exploring the nature and character of specific urban environments through the re-creation of actual surfaces, textures, colors and shapes visually extracted from that environment. These textural “thumbnails” create an impression of the surroundings through a sensory response to the local color, characteristic surfaces - man made or natural, and organic or geometric shapes that are prevalent.

The Impressionists used dabs of paint to represent reflections of light to describe a scene, allowing the viewer to absorb the landscape through the familiar sensations of and responses to light and color. Urban Impressionism seeks to describe the scenery and atmosphere through sensory associations with colors, textures and forms ubiquitous to that environment, in a more abstract and microcosmic way. These textural “snapshots” explore the juxtaposition and interplay of man made and natural surfaces found in modern urban landscapes. When viewed together, these works create a backdrop of color, texture, and form that evoke a particular place and time, and bring the viewer into that environment on a visceral level. Urban Impressionism is also about honing in on the beauty and poetry of seemingly mundane or unrefined aspects of our everyday surroundings.

This exhibition will feature a selection of the mixed-media artwork series created by Carla E. Reyesa Brooklyn based artist interested in visceral art making that explores the interaction between the natural and the man made, complex textural surfaces, and experimentation with new and unconventional art materials. Carla received her MA in Art Education from City College, and her BFA in Restoration and Fine Arts from FIT, NYC. Carla is also a decorative finisher, scenic/mural artist and art educator. Her complete portfolio can be viewed at: http://www.carlaereyes.com.


Also on view, are images of urban abstraction discovered as ongoing inspiration for the series, created by contemporary photographers. Born in Nashville, TN, Jeremiah Gregory(http://www.jeremiahgregory.com/) received his B.A. in Studio Art from Pitzer College, CA. His photographs run the gamut from moody portraiture to haunting abstractions of interiors and city surfaces, but all have a tongue in cheek message read through a lens catching light playing tricks. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. 





Robert Lobe (http://www.robertlobephoto.com/) came to color photography in the late 1970’s from a painting tradition. He received his Masters in Art History from Brown University, and studied at the International Center of Photography, as well as in workshops with master printer Jerry Vezzuso. He has had solo exhibitions at the University of Rhode Island, the Soho Photo Gallery, the Concepto Gallery, Brooklyn, and was included in the Queens International 2012, Queens Museum of Art, NY. 



Erik Savage is a recent graduate and current intern at Alpha Workshops Studio School’s decorative arts program, NYC. He has worked in magazine publishing as a designer and creative director, most recently at InTouch Weekly. He is partner in an artisan candy company (www.JustCaramelOnline.com), and is a freelance photographer and scenic painter. He has exhibited at Visual AIDS Postcards From The Edge, NYC, as well as at the gallery at Alpha Workshops.

Urban Impressionism will be on view from November 1-22, 2013 at Yashar Gallery. Yashar Gallery is located minutes from Manhattan in the urban art community of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Yashar Gallery opened its doors in April 2010, and hosts monthly rotating exhibitions featuring the professional artists at Brooklyn Art Studios in the Greenpoint Industrial Center.

Patricia Gaeta: Through the Thicket of Things





Masters & Pelavin is pleased to present Through the Thicket of Things, the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. In a series of abstract collages, Gaeta uses graph paper as her primary medium and main source of inspiration. Although her geometric constructions are painstakingly hand-cut, carefully layered and precisely ordered within their rectangular formats, the overall compositions have an intriguing energy, depth, and visual complexity.

After finding countless boxes of old graph paper in a trash bin, Gaeta began using it for her drawings. Soon, however, she discovered that cutting the paper along it’s gridded lines with an X-Acto blade and removing small sections of the graph was a process that opened up new artistic possibilities. Although occasionally her work looks as though the paper may have been machine cut, a closer look reveals her precise, labor-intensive process, with spontaneous, hand-made imperfections evident in the highly detailed work.

By its very nature, graph paper contains at least two perpendicular sets of lines forming a square grid, inviting activities such as three-dimensional drafting. Using this flat-surfaced grid as the jumping off point, Gaeta builds the illusion of depth with minimalist paper squares and cubes that have been glued flat against the graph paper. At the same time, she creates literal depth by building up layers of paper upon various shapes, raising and precariously overlapping them, adding height and volume to the geometric configurations. The boldness of these vivid, colorful designs, coupled with the delicate, tessellated nature of the thinly cut paper, create striking sculptural patterns that evoke a range of crafts, such as crochet, weavings, mosaics and architectural renderings.


  
Much of the work in this show was, in fact, inspired by architecture, particularly the empty, dilapidated buildings near Gaeta’s hometown of Niagra Falls, New York. Recalling the broken factory windows and rusting exteriors, many of the small collages in this show evoke a sense of uninhabited space and industrial decline, while her larger pieces tend toward proliferation and renewal. Her use of graph paper and the strict, systematic nature of architectural drafting it elicits are juxtaposed with worn, broken down materials such as ragged-edged paper, perforated vellum, wood veneers and flaking paint in luscious hues, suggesting an elegant and ordered decay. 

As Gaeta herself explains, “The use of graph paper is less common today as computer software has taken over many of the paper’s former uses. I want to go back to those humble uses, to a hand-made, craft-based art that eventually breaks down and deteriorates, but is ultimately more tactile, engaging and visually pleasurable.” 

A recent graduate of SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Art & Design, Gaeta currently lives and works in New York City.
