Collaboration of Circles & Lines
January 12, 2013 – February 15, 2013 ...
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 12, 2013, 5-7 p.m.
Gallery Y is pleased to present the first show of the New Year, Collaboration of Circles & Lines with three prominent local artists, David Jang, Barbara Kolo and Raul de La Torre.
Inspired by movements of circles and lines offered in nature and the surrounding environment, they transform those images by using their own textures and techniques. Each artist explores his/her abstract ideas on color, light and material with circles and lines.
David B Jang graduated from the College of Visual Arts, St. Paul, Min. His work utilizes materials and object-making to articulate the countervailing forces inherent in the everyday life. His technique can be described as an exacting, fanciful, or even obsessive re-creation of common materials. He deconstructs, re-programs and re-constitutes industrial and commercial cast-offs to reveal new relationships between the object and the viewer.
Barbara Kolo was born and educated in New York. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from SVA. She moved to Paris, France in 2000 and worked in La Bastille, which allowed her to participate in “Genie de la Bastille,” which is a similar to the Venice Art Walk in California. Her paintings were part of group exhibitions in France including one at the Palais des Art in Marseilles. Barbara’s paintings are abstractions of nature. She is influenced by colors, light and movement through dots and drips of paint that form her images.
Raul de La Torre was born in Barcelona, Catalunya and attended the Massana Art School. His art have been shown in galleries of Europe and United States. His works in the last four years cover numerous themes by different materials, textures and techniques. Through these experimentations, he has pursued his portrayal of different aspects he encountered in different locations. He recognizes the unique aspects of different urban life styles and social existence and to mold those unique urban chaos in reduced physical spaces of his own.
