This May Agora Gallery presents Elemental Realms, a collective exhibition that bursts with the energy of the new. This show features artists from all over the world who have one thing in common: a love of experimenting with texture. In oil, acrylic, and even more physically complicated media like gold leaf, the artists in Elemental Realms interrogate how both two-dimensional and three-dimensional surfaces convey information.
A key medium throughout the history of art, paint is also the most frequently used material in this exhibition. One artist feathers the canvas so lightly with acrylic that it almost seems to leave a soft kiss. Another creates an entire texture by cracking the time-hardened surface of his oils. One artist combines acrylic paint with a large volume of gold leaf to create abstract topographies in real space. These works evoke not just the final visual effect of paint on canvas (or board, or any number of surfaces), but the action of laying it down: the speed, the spontaneity, the care.
Elemental Realms begins May 19, 2017 and runs through June 8, 2017 with an opening reception on May 25 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.
