'The continuity is reflected in the repeating qualities of the forms while the discontinuity reflects the variability shaped by my momentary experience. No two elements are ever the same.'- Zammy Migdal
Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) January 09, 2014
There is no doubt that the installations of neatly twisted and beautifully colored metal pieces or elements, created by Zammy Migdal, come together to create a splash of color that is bigger than the sum of its parts. Migdal is an Artist who has a unique approach and a masterful way of manipulating his material. At a glance Migdal’s work seems like a compilation of repetitious shapes and colors, but as one gets closer, it is evident that no two metal pieces are the same. Each one is twisted, folded, or bent differently by hand. As light hits these metal components a shadow is cast beside it, becoming yet another visual layer to the piece. Zammy’s work is inspired equally by his personal experience, imagination, and the surroundings of each work, which make them site-specific installations.
The other exciting and recent addition to AiBo Fine Asian Art/Glenn Aber Contemporary Art is the paintings of Carlos Gamez De Francisco. Francisco is a master painter with unique subjects, which adds to his mysterious aura. He uses a classical style and subject matter infused with dabs of surrealism, culminating in a humorous yet dark effect. Using a specific color pallet, that does not rely on bright colors to grab the viewer, his work demands attention with his skillful rendering and dense compositions. The historical references are strongly deliberate such as his series of 17th and 18th century French Kings, and other high Royalty. His paintings become vessels to deliver distinct traits of human nature such as arrogance, selfishness, greed, and stubbornness. The depth of his content combined with a fierce technical ability creates paintings that stay with the viewer as different emotions emerge.
