|Energy #1, 2003|
At FRG, upstairs at 217 Warren Street, the exhibition Zen Dot Energy opens today, featuring the Zen Dot paintings of Merrill Steiger. Steiger deploys pointillism, scale shift, color harmony, and spatial involution to give the viewer a sense of hallucinatory vibration. "The obsessive detailing of the paintings emanates a universally understood electric current felt across cultural boundaries. The work seems to be in a continuous state of generative unfolding sustaining the eye and mind."
|Three Totems, 2000|
Experience these paintings for yourself at FRG tonight, at the opening reception, which takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibition Zen Dot Energy will continue through November.
Farther down Warren Street, at Jeff Bailey Gallery, 127 Warren Street, there is an opening reception for the exhibition Eat a Peach, featuring the work of Jim Gaylord, Douglas Melini, Loie Hollowell, and Carl D'Alvia. The paintings, works on paper, and sculpture that make up the exhibition "are linked by saturated color, textured surfaces, and replication of forms. Mirroring, symmetry, and tactility suggest both growth and abundance."
|Jim Gaylord, Mermaid with Cowboy Boots, 2015|
The opening reception for Eat a Peach is from 6 to 8 p.m. today. The exhibition continues through October 18.
