Gallery I: "We Are All the Children of the Ancestors" by Jide Ojo
Jide Ojo, a visionary artist known for his profound wit, presents a collection of astonishingly beautiful art in Gallery I. Ojo's artwork is composed of bits and pieces of the urban landscape, reimagining debris as a historical narrative of mankind. His masterpieces reflect the belief that we are all connected as "Children of the Ancestors."
Gallery II: "Memories" by Denise Adler, Cindy Bernier, Ralph Julius, and Robert L. Pepper
Gallery II showcases the evocative works of four talented artists, each exploring the theme of memories in their unique style. Artists include:
- Denise Adler: Adler’s work captures the fragile nature of life and the emotional impact of the past on the present. Through her portraits and dreamscapes, she presents an unsettled view of the world, infused with subtle amusement and innate feminism.
- Cindy Bernier: Bernier’s vibrant paintings reflect her memories of Woodstock, embodying a mix of love, energy, and communal movement. In her artwork titled "Body Memory," she explores the physical energy of movement and its continuous influence on her thoughts.
- Ralph Julius: Julius’ paintings transport viewers to familiar locations upstate in Newburgh and near his home in Brooklyn. By transforming color palettes, he enhances the viewer's experience and offers a fresh perspective on these locales.
- Robert L. Pepper: Pepper’s artwork features intertwining and interacting forms, inspired by tribal designs, ancient texts, and occult symbolism. Notably, his portraits serve as physiological maps of silent film stars from the early 20th century.
The exhibition at Pictor Gallery promises to captivate visitors with its diverse and thought-provoking collection of art. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with the artists, gain insights into their creative processes, and explore the power of memories and ancestral connections.
