Self-Absorbed A Self-Portrait Exhibition

June 28 – July 26, 2014

Opening Reception is Saturday, June 28th from 6-8 pm

FRED.GIAMPIETRO Gallery, 315 Peck Street, New Haven, CT

 FRED.GIAMPIETRO Gallery is pleased to present new works by Cathleen Mooses in an exhibition titled, Vulkansk/Volcánico.  This is Mooses’ first solo exhibition at the gallery. Self-Absorbed features work by gallery artists and guests that explore the juxtaposition of an artist’s current work with a self-portrait.

In a recent statement Cathy Mooses explains her working process, “My interdisciplinary art practice centers on traditional printmaking, papermaking and bookbinding methods. I often appropriate images from books and magazines to explore how image circulation changes meaning depending on context and the potential transformation of an image that can emerge through repetition. The books that I manipulate or construct are directly related to international research that aims to connect seemingly disparate subjects through systems of form finding.”

Cathy Mooses received her BFA from The Cooper Union School of Art in 2005 and her MFA from the Yale School of Art in 2014. She has exhibited her work internationally, including the 10th Havana Biennial in 2009 and Local Metrics at the Logan Center for the Arts in Chicago in 2012.

Artist self-portraiture is not a new idea. One could go back centuries and find many examples of this. The goal here is to place these self-portraits side-by-side, creating a dialogue with more conventional work that a particular artist is known for. This exhibition includes works by Oriane Stender, Mary Jo McGonagle, Laura Marsh, Philip Lique, Hooper Turner, Aspasia Anos, Farrell Brickhouse, Kayla Gibbons, Shane Smith, Peter Ramon, Karen Dow, Will Lustenader, Joe Wardwell, and Samuel Rothbort.

Fred.Giampietro Gallery specializes in emerging and mid-career contemporary art. This exhibition will take place at the FRED.GIAMPIETRO’s 315 Peck Street Gallery, located in New Haven, CT at the historic AC Gilbert Erector Set factory complex, less than 1/2 mile from interstate I-91 and about 2 miles from Union Railroad Station. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday 10am – 4pm and Saturday 11am – 4pm or by appointment. For more information please call the Gallery at (203) 777-7760 or visit us on the web at http://www.GiampietroGallery.com

Clint Jukkala, Elevation, 2013, Oil and acrylic on canvas, 12″ x 14″

Clint Jukkala’s new paintings call to mind René Magritte’s “False Mirror” (1928): a close-up look into an eye that opens out into clouds and sky. Jukkala’s circular shapes, outlined in bright colors, also become both eyes and windows, and pose similar perceptual conundrums. But where Magritte relied on conventional techniques of illustration, Jukkala builds his pictures out of abstract elements of shape, color, and texture. His techniques are basic—wavy lines suggest water, thinly applied washes suggest sky, and a horizon line serves as a primitive indicator of space. Everywhere, paired circles suggest faces, probably our most basic experience of human recognition.”

William Bailey Paintings and Drawings

May 30 – July 12, 2014

Opening Reception is Friday, May 30th from 6-8 pm

FRED.GIAMPIETRO Gallery, 91 Orange, New Haven, CT

FRED.GIAMPIETRO Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of works by William Bailey.  This is his first showing at the gallery. The exhibition includes still life paintings and figure drawings that reflect nearly sixty years of exploration by the artist. Bailey studied under Joseph Albers at the Yale School of Art following his service in the Korean War. He began his studies at the University of Kansas School of Fine Arts and graduated from the Yale School of Art.  Bailey has taught widely including at the University of Indiana at Bloomington. He held a long tenure at the Yale School of Art from which he retired in 1995 as the Kingman Brewster Professor Emeritus of Art.

Bailey’s still life paintings present seemingly everyday objects, including bowls, pitchers, and cups, in groupings that conjure the familiar world while offering a metaphysical timelessness.  Although they focus on a realm that is idealized, the works explore a mnemonic or remembered space where drawing, proportion, measure, and color find voice in Bailey’s expansive ability to capture light…light that illuminates the recognizable world while seeming to belong to an undefined, distant place. In contrast to a Realism of everyday life, Bailey offers us an integrated world  of autonomous interiority, stating, “I am trying to paint a world that is not around us.”

Like the poet filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky, who viewed art-making as a necessary effort toward perfection in an imperfect world, Bailey’s images reflect the history of imaging and clarifications of his craft. His work links us to the past of Piero, Corot, or Hopper  yet guides us to a perpetual here and now through his use of color and light. In this way he challenges our notions of both time and space.

The still life paintings suggest an environment grounded in Bailey’s imagined world of things. With sustained viewing these images suggest landscape, architecture and groups of figures that seem, subtly, to generate an atmosphere of color giving them both space and breadth.  These suggestions allow us to come to terms with the impermanence that defines our need for remembrance.

The works of William Bailey reveal themselves through a complex shifting of time and perception. Bailey’s particular focus on drawing allows an unfolding of varied duration within the continuity of space.  Attention in the imaginative act is shaped by the appearance and reappearance of forms.  The paintings also derive information from his ongoing practice of observing the figure.  Just as the pictures seem to sustain the tension of approaching absence, likewise, through the attention to delicate shifts of shadow and light, they seem to breathe with the presence of objects, figures and places.

Peter Ramon Inherent Collisions

Michael Angelis Collective Memories

May 16 – June 11, 2014

Opening Reception is Friday, May 16th from 6-8 pm

FRED.GIAMPIETRO Gallery, 315 Peck Street, New Haven, Ct

FRED.GIAMPIETRO Gallery is pleased to present new works by Peter Ramon and Michael Angelis. Inherent Collisions is Ramon’s second solo show at the gallery and Collective Memories is Angelis’s first. These solo exhibitions run from May 16 through June 11, 2014.

Peter Ramon has always been captivated by the constant changing of the positive, negative, and colorful shapes casted in nature by sunlight. Each of Ramon’s compositions embodies the intention to document his responses to these brief moments, sideways glances, and fleeting thoughts.  Those experiences are expressed through a beautiful and complex handling of layers, colors, textures, and shapes.

Peter Ramon lives and works in Branford, CT. Ramon received his MFA from Indiana University and his BFA from the University of Hartford, Hartford Art School.  His work has been included in numerous exhibits, including the Moody Art Gallery at the University of Alabama and The New Britain Museum of American Art. His work can be found in many private collections.

In a recent artist statement, Michael Angelis explains that his on-site paintings of the urban landscapes in and around New Haven have dominated the focus of his work over the past 5 years. The series began as a study of the street level experience underneath the overpasses of Route 91. Working directly in the environment influences the aesthetics in a much richer way than if the work were to be completed in the comfort of a studio setting, where it may simply imitate the photographs being used for reference. The paintings in the series often focus on environments in flux, whether they are actively changing or less obviously changing.
