Laura Rathe Fine Art presents Matt Devine & Gian Garofalo: Technicolor opening reception
For the 2014 Fall art season premiere, Laura Rathe Fine Art will present the duo artist exhibition Technicolor, featuring the latest series of works by renowned metal sculptor, Matt Devine, and contemporary resin, mixed-media painter, Gian Garofalo.
Devine is an exceptional metal sculptor and self-taught artist. His nonrepresentational sculptures are known for their clean and harmonizing aesthetic, which often seem to defy gravity. Devine’s artwork is seamless and evokes weightlessness, yet is fabricated using heavy metals such as steel, aluminum and bronze. Repetition of form, placement and minimalistic patterns create a sense of balance and harmony in his work.
Garofalo is a visual, multi-disciplinary artist who explores color and technique through the application of resin and pigments. Inspired by several contemporary artists, including Gene Davis of the Washington Color School, Garofalo meticulously applies resin to panel, creating stripes that slowly gravitate to the base, ultimately punctuating the work with intriguingly suspended paint droplets.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 4.
