Nadine Y. Jeners: Matches Color to Words at Agora Gallery

03-30-2012 03:54 AM CET | Arts & Culture

Press release from: Agora Gallery

German painter Nadine Y. Jeners creates bold compositions that simultaneously assert themselves — the words “made by me” often appear in their lower halves — and let viewers determine meaning. These visually arresting works evoke fusions of color field paintings and text-based conceptual art, the two-toned canvases divided horizontally with text in both sections. One is invariably tempted to draw meaning from the combinations of words like “luck” or “energy” and colors, which allow for endless interpretations. Jeners further teases our impulse to decipher these pairings with beautifully stylized typography.
Sometimes these font choices seem complimentary, for example in the case of “power” in large, wide capital letters, but elsewhere they remain enigmatically enticing, as with the word “hope” in elegant but delicate two-toned lowercase. The textural qualities of Jeners’ brushstrokes are exquisite, with subtle variations in density, light and layering playing out across the seemingly monochrome fields. Gently curving paint daubs turn into lively bursts of color. Words and hues interact playfully on her dynamic painted fields.

About the Exhibition:
Two excellent collective exhibitions will be gracing the walls of Agora Gallery this spring, in addition to a remarkable solo exhibition featuring the works of Austrian artist Fred Friedrich. Elements of Abstraction presents art with the ability to induce a shift in perspective, allowing the viewer to reach new conclusions about what they see and experience that vision in different ways. Portals of Perception displays works which seem to breathe with creative energy and inspiration, and a passionate joy in the world and its complexities which they pass, in turn, to those who see them. In Fin de Ciel: Fred Friedrich / a Solo Exhibition the audience is introduced to the tremendously powerful artwork of a man who is constantly engaged in exploring the balance between the figurative and the abstract, the fluid and the definite. The result is a mesmerizing collection of works which speak across barriers of culture, place or time to reach fundamental elements of existence. The exhibitions will begin on March 30, 2012 and will run until April 19, 2012. The opening reception will take place on April 5, 2012. Entrance is free and all art enthusiasts are warmly encouraged to attend and meet the artists responsible for these enthralling creations.

Tina Wendon’s Impressions of the Inner Psyche at Agora Gallery
In her ethereal and finely detailed style of portraiture, Tina Wendon develops an expressive realism of air and mood, bringing to light a faithful interpretation and a sense not just of the subjects’ physical characteristics but of their innermost life and emotions.

French artist Isabelle Gardelle creates highly emotive paintings which are detailed and meticulous yet entirely free.

Ramón A. Olivares Explores the Mystery of Vectors at Agora Gallery
Digital artist Ramón A. Olivares uses line and pattern to explore the visual impact of rhythm, symmetry, and declarative contrast on his audience. Working from a mathematical base, Olivares begins with a black canvas and digitally draws a matrix of vivid curves and ghostly geometric figures. The result is at once traditional and completely new: familiar, organic paisleys and rosettes, but tinted in otherworldly neon. “From the beginning of my
Julio Lugo Rivas’ Organic Visions at Agora Gallery
A harmonic sense of balance and motion rests at the heart of all the works of Puerto Rican artist Julio Lugo Rivas, as he seeks to express the stability between disease and wellness. Capturing the microscopic universe of cells and their environment in acrylic and mixed media on canvas, Lugo paints an ethereal and energetic vision, creating an organic abstraction in his mix of atmospheric brushstrokes,
Fin de Ciel: Fred Friedrich / a Solo Exhibition
Fred Friedrich displays in his work a characteristic bold, abstract style which immediately captures the attention, and which owes some of its tremendous power to the artist’s experience as an architect. His powerful paintings bear the traces of acrylic paints pooling and running off the canvas in thick streaks, the result of his controlled but emphatic movements as he works, and very thin, delicate lines that evoke illustration. By allowing
