Molina, Visions and Voices in the West gallery featuring nextactART, and On the Wall featuring Adrianne Lobel. The reception will be held February 13, 2020 from 6 - 8 p.m. ; The exhibition runs from February 13 thru March 11, 2020 at 548 West 28th Street in New York City.The gallery hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. In Metamorphosis, Claire Boren presents recent large, abstract mixed media works. The inspiration for Boren’s works often stem from her personal history; they represent her feelings and mindset as she processes each experience. In the past her artwork has served her in times stress or sadness. Entering the studio, Boren would pour everything into process, lashing at the paper, each stroke relieving unease and anger. This approach helped the artist through many challenging times. Her most recent pieces featured in Metamorphosis were created as she prepared for a move. Boren states, “In contrast to much of my earlier work, these paintings express the urgency and anxiety associated with such decisions, offset by the immediacy of our present time. These works embody my current frame of mind— a transition from one phase to the next. In her first exhibition with Carter Burden Gallery, Pauline Chernichaw, presents paintings from her seriesCocoon in the exhibition Metamorphosis. Influenced and inspired by her family background, Chernichaw’s powerfully abstract work portrays her imaginings of being guardedly sheltered within a cocoonlike environment. Her artwork embraces a display of limited color, organically rooted and intuitively altered forms. The paintings are symbolic of people’s need for self-protection, security, comfort and safe refuge from the outside world. Carlos N. Molina, a paper sculptor and a digital artist, exhibits tridimentional objects of ephemeral nature created using paper in his first exhibition with Carter Burden Gallery, Metamorphosis. The accessibility and malleability of the medium allows him the opportunity to play with the material. This playing with possibilities lets hidden forms reveal themselves and transforms lines and shapes into whimsical figurative and abstract objects. Molina states, “The idea of having a flat surface like a sheet of paper transform into a piece with volume is very inspiring to me, especially creating organic, soft forms, and freestyle abstracts.” Adrianne Lobel presents large, dramatic and colorful paintings of eighteen-wheelers in On the Wall. In the space, the artist installs three 7 x 5 foot paintings side by side of semi-truck grilles, a sight you might only see if standing directly in front of one of these monstrous vehicles. She finds beauty in places and things that might usually go unnoticed. Lobel states, “The unbeautiful is as singular to life as anything commonly recognized as beautiful or meaningful. I try to transform these subjects into something that everyone can appreciate.” Visions and Voices features a range of works by seven mixed media artists who are members of the group nextactART. The group functions by its members inspiring and energizing one another through discourse, the motivation to keep creating work, building community, showcasing their work, and gaining recognition. The artists include Barbara Brier, Rena Diana, Ronnie Grill, Judy Kaplan, Madeline Farr, Madlyn Goldman, Patricia Miller, Stephanie Suskin, and Sheila Wolper. All the artists have created mixed media pieces measuring 36 x 48 inches in their own individual style for the exhibition. Rena Diana presents the work Oasis, which highlights the artists’ interest in the underlying geometric shapes and linear patterns of both the natural and urban worlds. She states, “They enkindle my imagination and a reverence for the elegant beauty that surrounds us in the most humble, ordinary spaces as we walk through village and city, forest and field.”

"Pauline Chernichaw's minimal and pictorial photographic abstractions evoke a sense of visual stimulation, emotive delight and spiritual meditation. By exploring the core of water's life-force, Chernichaw reveals her multi-layered perception and inherent connection to what is "beyond the water's surface. Chernichaw's observant eye gazes beyond the surface of the ocean, ponds, creeks and rivers visually immersing herself in fields of color, line and organic forms. Her water series mirrors an endlessly moving and infinitely shifting water scape." - Ceres Gallery ~Click here to read PRESS RELEASE~
