UltraHyperDrone at SyntheticZero at Bronx art Space NY

Synthetic Zero Event

Opening, Saturday, December 12, 7-10pm

305 E 140th St #1A
Bronx, NY 10454

Also open Dec 13 - Jan 9
The next Synthetic Zero Art/Performance/Video Event will be tonight, December 12, 7-10pm, 2015 at BronxArtSpace, only 20 minutes from Union Square. The show includes performance, video and interactive installations, video screenings, sculpture, prints, and collages. The show will also be on view until January 9, 2016, during regular gallery hours (except between Christmas and New Year's)

The Synthetic Zero events are a series of art events focusing on high quality experimental and contemporary work in different media. We often do not have a specific theme for each event but instead a theme emerges from the interaction between submitted work and curatorial interests. By working this way, the events reflect back the dialogue and practice of artists involved combined with a curatorial direction that comes from the moment, and we create evocative encounters for the audience.

OFL (old family linen) - acrylic paintings on antique linen

OFL are monochromatic paintings, using old family linen, exploring the absence of form, the void, silence, detachment, folds, creases, wrinkles, crinkles, cutting edges, seams, fringes, buck-lings and deflections. OFL gives praise to my mother my grand mothers and great grandmothers, who kept their linen meticulously folded, bearing invisible traces of love, joy, birth, suffering and death. This series of paintings is part of the evolving "traces of times past" project. click here for more images

Sister 7 @ Gallery 60SIX

Saturday, September 26, 2015
Gallery 60SIX, 66 Elgin Park Artist reception Saturday 9/26 5-8pm
open through Saturday October 31

Jürgen Trautwein

Sister 7
In his series “Sister 7” Jürgen Trautwein investigates resistance and transparency in painting. His practice of using found objects in his work continues as in this series clear plastic roof sheeting acts as the canvas, creating resistance with the acrylic paint. Jürgen has an uncanny ability to seemingly effortlessly integrate elements of subjects or materials he confronts in daily life in his work. Concept, process and materials unite in his practice and overall body of work, (i.e. line drawings, photos, videos, paintings).
In “Sister 7” strokes of paint form chance puddles, drops and explosions when hitting the industrial plastic. Energetic marks travel a meandering, unpredictable path. Several coats of varnish then confine and trap the paint almost as if frozen while in escape or motion…resulting in pictures that become controlled accidents.
Trautwein plays with transparency by layering the paintings in some cases, where the overlap exposes the activity and color below. In the more minimal spacious pieces the paint suggests live organisms poised for inspection in a Petri-dish. Other works show the artist’s brush marks subtly or boldly as they disintegrate and deconstruct. Universal metaphors could be implied with political overtones in the exploration of “resistance and transparency.” Trautwein’s deliberate manner and trust in allowing these materials (plastic, paint, varnish) to simultaneously marry and repel, create extremely diverse moods; from violence to calm.
