OPENING:Love & Rage Arié MandelbaumUnquiet Kingdom Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann7-9 pm
Love & Rage puts forth Mandelbaum's latest series of mixed media works on paper. Produced during a six-week residency in Anacostia, the 13 large-scale artworks in the downstairs show depict scenes the artist observed in the neighborhood during his stay and were created with his signature medley of tempera and mixed media on paper or canvas. Born in 1939 in Brussels to Polish-Jewish parents, Mandelbaum's experiences during his formative years as a young Jewish boy during WWII have heavily influenced his life's work.Upstairs, Mann's Unquiet Kingdom crawls up and hangs from the ceilings. These new site- specific installation paintings, in Sumi ink and acrylic on paper, mimic their own imagery of contained chaos through their placement in the gallery. The artist's oeuvre is characterized by complex scenes composed of tight patterns woven into and overtaking watery, loose marks that suggest a cautious celebration of the excesses of our world--she describes her work as "baroque abstract".
