Robert Blumenthal Gallery is pleased to announce t,o,u,c,h,i,n,g, on view from February 12th through March 15th. The exhibition marks the opening of Robert Blumenthal Gallery at 1045 Madison Avenue.
The act of touching is energy. It’s the release and acceptance of sadness, excitement, lust, and anger. Through art, we can emit energy visually. The object is a conduit.
Inspired by the Paul Sharits film, T,O,U,C,H,I,N,G, JPW3 has organized a show around the concept of the artwork as a powerful channel that transfers feeling from the artist to his/her audience. Aside from his own work, JPW3 includes the tenderly rendered monochromes of Sayre Gomez, the explosive photographic abstractions of Ryan Foerster, the translucent apparitions of Sam Moyer, the intense biomechanical creations of Sean Townley, and the animated objects of Gavin Kenyon.
