Bruno David: Friday, 7 December 2007

Opening Reception. Friday, December 7 from 6 to 9 pm

Thomas Sleet: Traces will be in the Main Gallery, featuring large wall relief sculptures composed of cement, natural and synthetic fiber, recycled materials, acrylic, and earth pigments. Sleet utilizes tortured distressed surfaces to merge shapes and texture, positive and negative, color and space, uniting as a remarkably unique composition. His work is enigmatic as it weaves themes of organic structure, migration, infinite multiples and primitive culture.

Ingo Baumgarten shows small paintings, which comment, on banal aspects of everyday life by representing them as motives of his art. He is interested in demonstrating his individual view of the world around him without glorifying or condemning it. He would consider his work as a painter successful if it enables the spectator to adopt a more complex and altered perception of his surroundings. Baumgarten uses paint portray these objects and details because it “provides a better medium for formulating an individual point of view.”

Ella Gant presents a series of short videos centered on the principle that reveal "awareness of our own experience can inspire social consciousness, political responsibility, cultural interaction and changed behavior." Her knowledge of history and theory combined with her relationship with photography, video, performance, electronic arts, result in works that address the identity, sexuality, subjectivity, reality, and ephemerality.

New Paintings: Jeff Aeling & Belinda Lee at Philip Slein Gallery

Friday, Nov. 16th 2007, Reception 6-9pm and runs through Nov. 10th, Tues.-Sat. 11am-4pm

Jeff Aeling's new landscape paintings combine the sense of grandeur of the past with the visual clarity of 21st Century art. Aeling says about his paintings "regardless of our awareness, we all share an intimate connection to the natural world. The processes that
shape nature also shape ourselves. I am trying to make paintings that reflect that connection."

Belinda Lee: "I paint portraits --I see myself as a visual anthropologist collecting and describing data that details a difficult, changing and complicated world." In this new body of work, Belinda carries forward the tradition of portraiture in a viable and meaningful fashion.

Ponce has been exhibited widely in her home country Chile and the U.S., as well as Portugal, Denmark, and Korea.

Her work gravitates from the Poetic to the Political while maintaining a love for audio and crafted imagery.

Mary Lamboley
November 16 – December 21, 2007
Opening Reception: Friday, November 16, 2007, 6 - 8pm

Using paper in a physical way, Lamboley’s paintings, drawings and sculptures play with the transference of images intended as a thematic overlapping, and an insight into how abstraction happens. With particular emphasis on the materiality of the medium, her work attempts to trace this process and to become a catalyst for new experiences, pinpointing a personal understanding and inquiry into the laws that govern, how things are supposed to be organized, and looking into history and its importance in everyday occurrences. In the work,
Lamboley possesses the power of suggestion, pairing ideas such as politics and religion; a statement on the separation of church and state is accomplished by combining text from the Bill of Rights with a stylistic layer of reference to an illuminated manuscript. This method allows Lamboley to create an uncertainty of and between two disparate movements, Lamboley comments: “it is the idea we hold in front of the world that is, I believe, where the binary
oppositions, contradiction, confusion and conflict arises.” She is also driven by the belief in the power of art as an expression and reflection of life, viewing art as “a way of being, a science, a practice for self-transformation and social change, and a life choice” and using the role of art as an implement and a motive for constant discovery. These elements have become the principal foundation for her creative process by consistently questioning the limits to allow for a possibility of aligning with what she calls “a more sustainable underlying order.”

We'll Talk More Later
A collaboration with Greg Edmondson

Opening reception: Friday, November 9, 7:00 – 11:00 pm

About four months ago Greg Edmondson purchased 5 pounds of super phos, a phosphorescent powder, to use on sculptures for the Collective installation at the Sheldon Galleries. Two pounds remained of the substance and Jonathon Lisenby, of Open Lot, invited Edmondson to mount an exhibition of work which would also glow in the dark. But Edmondson, however, was more interested in how other artists would work with the substance.

I thought it would make more sense to get everyone involved in the space involved in the show; and see where a handful of artists would go if they all used the same material,” said Edmondson.

B.J. Vogt, Emily Hemeyer, Turner Williams, Jordan Hicks, Angela Malthionno, and even Jonathon Liseby, himself incorporated super phos into their artwork. The results will be view Friday, November 9 at the inauguration of Open Lot.
