Exhibiting Artists

  • Vincent Arcilesi  (+)

    Biography : Since his art school days, the fiercely independent artist Vincent Arcilesi, whose mature work Edward Lucie-Smith described in his book American Realism as a deliberate turning away from the accepted idea of the Modern, has been a prolific painter of landscapes and, more recently, of cityscapes. At the Art Institute of Chicago, Arcilesi was one of the few students less interested in jumping on the Hairy Who bandwagon than in immersing himself in the school’s terrific collection of Impressionist and Postimpressionist masterpieces. Indeed, Arcilesi invariably includes smaller landscapes and cityscapes in his exhibitions of large thematic figure paintings, set in various locales around the world. And the close observer will notice that many of them, besides being finished works of art in their own right, also serve as alla prima studies for the backgrounds in his erotically charged postmodern allegories. Arcilesi usually reproduces some of his landscapes in his exhibition catalogs to make the point that that they are not aesthetic stepchildren but an essential part of his oeuvre. Yet they are often upstaged by the spectacular sexiness of his mural-scale canvases of classically comely nudes striking poses in the streets and plazas of the world’s great cities. People tend to go so ga-ga over the palpable pulchritude he evokes in his figure paintings that they sometimes overlook the subtler charms of his landscapes. The pity of this is that, in doing so, they also overlook the fact that every facet of nature can be as great a source of sensual delectation as the most beautiful human body, when caressed by the brush of a painter as acutely attuned to each and every nuance of visual experience as Arcilesi happens to be. Arcilesi first made this point two years ago with a superb exhibition of landscapes at 2/20 Gallery, 220 West 16 Street, and now reinforces it with an equally splendid mini-retrospective, Arcilesi Around the World—Part II: Landscape Survey 1966–200

    Biography : When I use objects I see them as a vocabulary of feelings. My work explores intuitively my various stages of feminine awareness. It examines the female form, gender roles, relationships, sexuality and interconnectedness. Through the recycling and juxtaposition of various objects (forgotten, discarded and seemingly worthless), I am attempting a transformation towards a precious recollection. Resurrecting memories, collective yet intimate, visceral yet tender....piecing together beauty as if telling a story. I am inviting the viewer to explore their childhood innocence and fantasies through their adult nostalgia and sensuality. I hope to create a romantic and playful portrait of the female identity with the possibility of entering dreams: my own or someone else's, as when a child plays dress up....full of the yearnings for beauty and mystery.

    Biography : Artist Statement I create miniature sculptures and paintings, filtering real world objects through a meticulous handmade process and using a radical scale shift to invite close scrutiny. Current work takes the form of accumulations and visual inventories in both real and imagined categories. My miniature sculptures engage with the tradition of still life, cataloging a daily world where routine meets consumer culture and personal history. I recently completed a series of 28 miniature tableaus based on the objects found on people's bedside tables. I began by asking friends for pictures of their nightstands, and then expanded the series to include a wide group of people across the country. I have long been interested in how people’s collections create snapshot biographies, and I became fascinated by the wide array of objects kept on bedside tables, where tissues and receipts are jumbled alongside souvenirs, prescriptions, cherished mementos, etc. Items to screen out the world (earplugs, eye masks, white noise machines, sleeping pills) are kept alongside those that invite the world in (radios, TV remotes, iPads, clocks, phones.) Journals and self-help books are stacked next to magazines and paperback. e We spend about a third of our lives asleep: what are the last things we want to see or touch before drifting off, and what do we want watching over us while at our most physically vulnerable? I'm interested in how these collections speak to universal themes, from memory and self care to sex and dreams, and also create complicated individual portraits of their owners.

  • Nola Romano  (+)

    Biography : Continuing to paint on both large and small scale canvases (and wood panels), Romano depicts herself as the model cast in many roles: playful, sultry, wide-eyed, erotic, innocent and active. Nola Romano uses the four seasons to represent man's life cycle, as we grow and return to the earth. Her paintings brim with symbolism and characters almost always accompanied by intricately articulated animals. Twin girls frolic in the background representing our multifaceted personalities, while polar bears, pigeons, furry tails and mud move us through the cold toward love, lust and rebirth. Flowers, fresh soil and wet cement in the backdrop evoke our urban senses. The green clouds in Spring Shine suggests verdancy and growth unless ... the green indicates toxicity.The message in all of these paintings is fraught with ambiguity. Romano shows us at our most basic, prehistoric and primal. Our shared blue print, our internal systems, our animal states.

    Detailed Description : My work consists of sculpture, new media, installation, and photo-based works, and my practice is united by a common exploration of social and humanistic principles and value. Beginning with an inquiry into our shared social and political environment, my practice investigates an individual’s sense of self and the evolution of a shared consciousness. I explore issues surrounding women’s rights, gender and identity, and compel visitors to contemplate the changing political and social climate of our era. Reflecting on the challenges of being a woman artist in an atmosphere of consumerism is a fundamental principle in my work. I interrogate the patriarchal lens through which my work is viewed. This raises questions about the nature and importance of being a woman artist working today.
