"Size Matters: Antonio Puri"
2005-05-12 until 2005-06-30
Taste of Art Gallery at The Kaufmann Arcade
New York, NY, USA United States of America

a taste of art is pleased to present Antonio Puri at the Kaufmann arcade located at 139 West 35th, New York. The exhibition, entitled Size Matters, encompasses six of Puri's large mixed media paintings. Several of these paintings were created while Puri was an artist-in-residence at 40 Worth Street in Tribeca through chashama's artist-in-residence subsidized space grant. Puri grew up in the foothills of the Himalayas and has taken the technique of batik from there and applied it to mixed media on canvas.

His modified batik technique when applied with stains, paints, and more create unusual resist paintings. He plays with the tension of organic drips and the geometric form of the circle. He calls his style "non-dualistic", the collapse of all opposites.

Antonio Puri comments about his work, "Circles are all encompassing. Dripping paint from both sides of the canvas creates a gravitational and anti gravitational pull towards the center. To further capture the timeless, ambiguity is emphasized.

"Contrasting colors, textures and form is used to express the various aspects of the paint, its fluidity and painterly qualities. While non representational in content, the paintings are unintentionally evoking images of other worlds.

Spontaneity and control, and balancing these two, is what leads to the end result.

Puri is one of the original Artist Portfolio Members at absolutearts.com, joining in 2000. View More of his work at: http://www.absolutearts.com/portfolios/k/kantonio/
