Long Island City Artists exhibit at Diego Salazar Gallery

lunes, noviembre 26 del 2012

This is an exhibit of artists who are making art in Long Island City studios or have in the recent past.
These are painters who have created images of a Long Island City that no longer exists; the Power
Plant at 5th St. and 51st Ave. with its original stacks, which is now a luxury apartment building, and
the old Gantries before they were polished up and became focal points for the waterside park; not to
mention the low houses and big skies.
These are painters who find inspiration in the more industrial Long Island City, which is fast
disappearing, and those who prefer a more detached realm of line, texture and color. You will find
people in some of the paintings doing ordinary things; other paintings encompass strange inward
realities that are often expressed symbolically.
Photos of crashed cars and torn billboards eyeing us mysteriously, hanging cloth paintings on draped
cloth with sewing machine stitching drawing us into the pirate’s lair, and a couple of white porcelain
sea creatures that confound the imagination engage us further and energize the rooms.
Now seriously, can you resist this wonderful panoply of visual experience on a cold winter’s day?
