Hidell Brooks Gallerypresents Scott Duce Marker Series + Charles Walker The Quiet Life. November 2 – December 22, 2012

Scott Duce The Marker Series has been one of my signature series for several years. These paintings are both abstract and representational in style.  I set out to establish a simulated memory of place by combining recognizable images in an inner panel, surrounded by an abstract enclosure that is generally produced from the observation of actual fragments of surface texture.  They may be based on wall surfaces, tile patterns, or less specific visual memories.  The inner and outer images of the paintings represent very different types of visual space, however I retain a close relationship between them through the use of similarly referential color or texture, or through the emotion engendered by color combinations.  For me the energy of the painting is generated by the contrast between the tranquility and deep illusionistic space of the inner image and the expressionistic, though more flat vigor of the outer image.

Charles Walker People crave narrative. I deny people that desire in my paintings. I try to make objects that operate in a space without story. I am just like you – I desire information, but I acknowledge a world that exists without words. In art there is a space for intuition and improvisation without any explanation as to how you arrive at any certain conclusion. Paintings do not provide any answers and they are also pretty lousy at forming questions. Paintings simply exist in thin slivers of space and time and they sit there looking at you as much as you look at them.

Ciel Gallery presents Please touch! Ciel Gallery hosts the opening reception for Texture: A Very Touchy-Feely exhibition of mosaic and mixed media on Friday, November 2, 6:00 – 9:00 PM. Free, open to the public, and family friendly.

Elder Gallery – This is our first solo exhibition of abstract paintings created by Anne Raymond in her East Hampton, New York studio. Raymond’s paintings represent atmospheric and gestural moments in time and can be viewd as subconscious imprints inspired by the changing luminosity and the energy created by the movement in nature. The artist has created his body of work with the goal of capturing a perceived fleeting moment.  Opening reception is this Friday from 5pm to 8pm.present

Post & Gray, as a special addition to the Gallery Crawl, Post & Gray will be featuring the art work of Hiromi Ashlin and Imeida Yukenbarri. Post & Gray is located at 2139 S Tryon Street.
