My Paint Brush Narrative: Paintings by Olivia Kapoor – NYC

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of American Inter-Dimensional, Visionary artist Olivia Kapoor’s pop-up, solo show entitled My Paintbrush Narrative: Paintings by Olivia Kapoor. The exhibition features 26 of Kapoor’s original paintings, and represents an exceptional culmination of the artist’s oeuvre.

Kapoor’s paintings offer ethereal meditations on the nature of time and emotion interpreted through color, geometry, and texture. Working in predominantly acrylic, oil, and pastel, the artist constructs highly saturated canvases that defy traditional, realist expressions of color. Kapoor imbues works such as Body in Water (2012) and The Watch (2008) with an all-over composition, bright, effervescent hues, and symbolic iconography. Her overall oeuvre blends contemporary painting techniques with the style of Surrealist and Impressionist masters such as Salvador Dali and Vincent Van Gogh, and Claude Monet. Kapoor describes her technique as “relaxed and meditative.” She explains: “My state of mind and how I feel emotionally contribute greatly to the work itself, how it comes together, and how long it takes…. The great thing about the end result

is that it is able to speak for itself, tell a story, communicate something to the viewer.” The artist’s compelling juxtaposition of pattern and texture are at once immersive and dynamic, thus inviting the viewer into the continuously evolving, dream-like world Kapoor cultivates through paint.

My Paintbrush Narrative: Paintings by Olivia Kapoor will be on view from December 5th-6th, 2017, with an opening reception on the evening of December 5th.

Exhibition Dates: December 5 – 6, 2017

Reception: Tuesday December 5, 2017 6-8 PM

Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am – 6:00pm

Metamorphosis: Oppositions and Evolutions – NYC

Bus Stop

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Metamorphosis: Oppositions and Evolutions, a group exhibition featuring the works of Osvaldo Bacman, Ed Belbruno, Laura Colantonio, Josep Francés Anaya, Andrew Glass, Monika Gloviczki, Donato Grima, Theresia Innerhofer, Martin Randall Joyce, John Kingerlee, Malvisi, Vicente Marzal, Koki Morimoto, Eduardo Ojeda, Z. Michael Schmidt,Irene Shcherbakova, Eunhyue Shin, and Dave Weindorf.

The eighteen artists featured present dynamic and often opposing points of view in their diverse bodies of work. Ancient and modern, bodily and geometric, unknown and earthly—the widely varying works in this exhibition propose a series of thoughtful contrasts. Through painting, drawing, sculpture, and mixed media, Metamorphosis employs a multiplicity of visual languages in an attempt to blur boundaries and realize the virtue of manifold perspectives.  Via these powerful juxtapositions, the artists featured conjure possibilities for harmony despite difference. The result is a site of mutual transformation, in which disparate artists are united by their variance.

Metamorphosis will open November 11th with an opening reception November 16, from 6-8 PM, and will remain on view until December 2, 2017.

Exhibition Dates: Nov. 11  – Dec. 2, 2017

Illumination and The New Flux – NYC

This fall Agora Gallery presents two complementary group exhibitions which together re-frame the thematic and stylistic tension between painting and photography. Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography showcases 6 photographers whose work allows viewers to a glimpse into worlds both imagined and hyper-real. With a meticulous eye for detail, the works of these photographers highlight the fundamental reality of dreams and desires.

Featuring 11 artists, the exhibition showcases the full range of techniques and perspectives available in painting today. Commenting on how nature influences the architectural and social development of urban spaces, the artists featured in The New Flux mingle pictorial realism with an almost filmic sense of narrative and tone.
