"Eric Bowman, Ken Hoffman, Marge Moody, Yunsook Park, Timothy Rudd, Aviva Sawicki"
2004-05-25 until 2004-06-19
Amos Eno Galley
New York, NY, USA United States of America

The Amos Eno Gallery is pleased to present a group show of works by Eric Bowman, Ken Hoffman, Marge Moody, Yunsook Park, Timothy Rudd and Aviva Sawicki from May 26 to June 19, 2004. Eric Bowman's playful still-lifes blur the line between representation and abstraction. Ken Hoffman combines aspects of comedy with his collage paintings. Marge Moody's current group of acrylic & collage pieces are part of a series of larger works inspired by a visit to Italy last Spring. In Yunsook Park's ongoing "Good Luck Project", the artist meticulously cuts up authentic winning lottery tickets and transforms them into signs of luck arranged on colored canvases. Aviva Sawicki's thoughtful pieces start with etching, watercolor and water-based pigments on her own hand-made paper, to which she has added various ingredients.

Eric Bowman's paintings in high and low-relief, are in the shape and scale of the objects they depict presented in a variety of media and materials, arranged in either a traditional still life or as individual objects separated from a domestic context.

Ken Hoffman seeks to unsettle the viewer with his ironically human animal portraits. A subtle intensity is reached not only through his subject matter, but through his painterly surfaces and sensuous color play.

Marge Moody attempts to capture the transient nature of color and light as observed in Italy's urban and rural landscape. Her abstractions beautifully capture the essential nature of these subjects through color, line, texture and shape.

In Yunsook Park's compositions have a cool edge evident in her relation to Pop Art, while the laborious process of her art making contrasts with the lottery's promise of instant wealth.

Timothy Rudd's still-lifes in oil merge aspects of cubism, expressionism, futurism and synchronism. This prism of perspectives gives them a vibration and energy that is both dynamic and fluid.

Aviva Sawicki's works achieve a quality, texture and a sense of old contrasting new through the combination of paper, sepia in her etchings and bright colors in her painting. Her style lends themselves to her themes of married life as a fragile frame between two individuals and the imperative need of celebrations of cultural diversity versus overpowering imperial globalization.
