Reverie: Air Fire Water Earth, a group show at Broadway Gallery, which runs from March 1 through 15, 2008, features Loes de Haan, Richard Hoey, Emilia Dubicki, Jeanie Lee, Bonnie Brown, Brighart, Maria Parmo. The exhibition which was curated by Christine Kennedy, features work by seven international artists exploring themes of space, imagination and the poetics of materiality.
Inspired by Gaston Bachelard's writings on the fundamentals of poetic space, the exhibition focuses on material inscriptions of excess, fissures and ruptures, as well as other diverse modes of presentation that disrupt the traditional notion of representation. Maria Parmo has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2002.
All of the artists featured tend to favor nuance, discreet places, dissonance, and symbolic displacement. Above all, the works in Reverie eschew nostalgia and spiritual platitudes in order to reference the ineffable within the materiality of existence.
Maria Parmo, from Buenos Aires, Argentina states about her work, "My works are based on dialectic between the conscious elements (straight lines, designed forms) and unconscious ones (textures),
in to balance them.
It express my desire to solve the dichotomies in dialectic form and not in fight.
Should the viewer experience these concept when they see my painting?. No, they shouldn’t.
The viewer could have a dialectic relation with the art work where they is free 'to think' or 'to feel' what wants about it."
