Juicyfruit,Acrylic & Mixed Media on Canvas,16" x 20"

The colorful abstractions of Kristina Zallinger, will be on view at Agora Gallery, 530 West 25th Street, from May 5 through May 27. (Opening Reception Thursday May 7, from 6 to 8pm.)

About Kristina Zallinger:
The refreshing, colorful abstractions by Kristina Zallinger bubble forth with energy, movement and a zest for life. Working with acrylic, as well as mixed media, she builds up layers of dots, wiggling lines and daubs of pure pigment to create a dynamic textured surface on canvas or panel. She achieves a near sculptural quality with this method, the flat surface of the under-painting contrasts wonderfully with the impasto brushwork that is added above. A daring colorist, Zallinger’s effervescent palette includes deep hues of violet and blue coupled with neon greens, yellows and oranges. In fact, color has become a driving force behind Zallinger’s creativity. “Once the paint is on the brush, it is left up to it to form the painting,” she explains. “Although I am directing, the final result is a collaboration.”

Kristina Zallinger is very active in the arts community in Connecticut where she resides, selling her artwork and exhibiting frequently. Recently acquiring representation in Manhattan, Zallinger’s career in the arts continues to gain momentum.

About the Exhibition:
An impressive selection of talented artists has been brought together for Labyrinth of Abstraction, a showcase of contemporary abstract painting. This internationally diverse grouping uses painterly abstractions to conceptualize the ineffable, with exploding colors, lines, and shapes celebrating life’s nuances while enticing the eye. This bold language of art displays an individuality and breadth of style that speaks directly to our souls and refreshes our spirits. Out From Down Under & Beyond celebrates contemporary artists from Australia and New Zealand. Enriched with both Western and indigenous artistic traditions, some of the finest contemporary visual art, where the importance and sacredness of the land, the power of ancestral art as well as modern artistic joy and technique become a uniting theme. In this art exhibition of exception, not only art collectors but also art lovers of all sensitivities will discover a wealth of enigmatic forms and lush symbolism imbued with drama and originality. The wide variety of artistic invention which greets audiences attending Portals of Perception underscores the idea that as long as people dream and imagine art will never cease to exist, inspire, and bring about contemplation in others. These talented artists bring their thoughts and feelings to reality in a stunning variety of styles and forms that will touch audiences long after viewing the painting. The artists of Manifestation of Milieu cull resonant imagery from their travels, dreams, and life experiences that speak to us on a personal level. Ranging from fanciful to contemplative, this exceptional body of work will have audiences reveling in the sweeping landscapes, stunning portraiture, and inventive characters. This talented grouping of contemporary painters bid us pause in our hectic modern world to explore with new eyes and fresh perspectives
