Love & RageArié Mandelbaum
Unquiet KingdomKatherine Tzu-Lan Mann
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".
The Gallery at Vivid Solutions will be opened normal gallery hours this Friday; noon to 5pm. Vivid will not be open late for the reception on Friday night. Gabriela Bulisova's artist talk is September 26th and the closing of the exhibit is September 28th. More details soon!
