Agora Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Pathways, an exhibition featuring the works of Enrico Ambrosio, Westby and Mercier, Lorena Becerra, Anita Birkenfeld, Hanneke Kempers, Nancy McLean, Iva Milanova, Frédérique Négrié, Alaleh Ostad, Elke Riedel, Rody, Svetlana Sintseva, and Bekir Smolski.
Through a survey of the diverse oeuvres of the aforementioned thirteen artists, Pathways examines how art can blur the lines between fantasy and reality. For example, Enrico Ambrosio’s digital explosions of color and light are contrasted with Nancy Mclean’s dynamically textured, whimsical adaptations of everyday scenes and objects. Meanwhile, Alaleh Ostad reinterprets traditional landscape scenes by transforming them into dynamic, abstract compositions through energetic swirls of oil paint on canvas. The exhibition considers these motifs through a myriad of media, including paintings, sculpture, digital compositions, photography, and multimedia collages. The innovative use of various materials and media by each of the artists in Pathways presents the viewer with the opportunity to overstep the boundary of the real into the ethereal.
Pathways will open on September 26th, with an opening reception on September 28th from 6-8pm, and will remain open until October 17th, 2017.
