Get transported at “Chance Encounter”

Need to escape the heat this weekend and can’t go down to the shore? Come relish in air conditioning and indulge in some great art down in Parkway Museums District and check out our show Chance Encounter at Park Towne Place. 

Chance Encounter features work from artists Megan T. Biddle, Keith R. Breitfeller, Annette Cords, Peter Cunicelli, Kevin B. Huang, Jacque Liu, Sarah Kate Burgess, Rick Salafia, and Diane Szczepaniak. The artists included experiment with color, light, and form and have presented pieces that offer a temporary escape from the hustle and bustle of our every day to transport us into a world full of wonder. Journey through the 3 distinct parts of Chance Encounter: Light, Form, and Color. South Tower Gallery explores the influences of Light. In North Tower Gallery you are introduced to unusual ready-made materials and sculptural object as this portion is focused on Form. West Tower Gallery envelops you into the world of vivid hues, shades, and tones that is the Color portion of the exhibition. 

You don’t need to travel far to experience a new world. We hope to see you at Chance Encounter before it closes on September 8!

Composing in series, and often series within series, all of my projects from the past couple of decades have dealt with social issues, and more recently have embraced text as both content and image:

*  states of mind as one-word declarations (SO I WAS, LIKE....)

* the interior lives of artists (DESIDERATUM)

* odd courting and mating habits in the animal kingdom that sometimes echo our own (RE:PRODUCTION – Portraits)
* the dysfunction of todays politics seen through an historical perspective (WHEEL, DEAL, STEAL, THEN SPIN)

* death – it’s customs, euphemisms, architecture (THE FINAL FRONTIER)

* profiling and identity (The MARK Portraits)

* violence in America (TOKENS, PRECIS, HARBINGERS AND HERALDS, AMERICAN PIE, EIKONS)

Sharing the experiences I have had with race and gender is a catalyst for my work. My experience growing up very protected in a race not completely my own, was not concerning to me as a child. When I was introduced to a mixed race population that was very concerned with labeling and grouping people, the experience was unsettling. From that point, I had to think about race and culture and how they related to my daily performance.

The intentional physicality of my paintings is as much a result of my dialogue throughout the process as it is the means with which I invite viewers to experience the work viscerally. Iconography may be the entry point for viewers, but the essence of the elements and ambiguity demand individual interaction with each painting. Layering is both revealing and concealing, creating a balanced tension and suspension which is really what painting is for me. I use the elements to speak for me and I wish to open doors to new dialogue within and between viewers.
