Flexible Paralles by Igor & Marina | Fragments by Alejandro Rivera
Caldwell Snyder Gallery is pleased to present the opening of Flexible Parallels by Igor & Marina, and Fragments by Alejandro Rivera. The artists will be in attendance for an opening reception on Thursday, September 6, from 5:30-7:30pm. Exhibition continues through September 30.
About Igor and Marina
Working as a husband-and-wife team, the Russian-born duo collaborates on each canvas, Marina contributing her impressive skills as a figurative artist in the Old Master tradition, Igor lending his refined sense of color, shape, texture and affinity for abstract images. As a result, the paintings are influenced by, and recall, a diverse spectrum of artists and eras: famous avant-garde figures like Chagall, Malevich, and Kandinsky as well as fifteenth-century Russian religious painters. Partly, this array of forebearers reflects the artists' educations: trained in rigorous Russian academies to appreciate both ancient and modern techniques, they learned to combine past and present with fluidity.
About Alejandro Rivera
To view a painting by Mexican artist Alejandro Rivera is to enter into an alternate universe. Rivera's paintings transport viewers to a place where time has collapsed, allowing artifacts of disparate civilizations to engage in a continuous and complex dialogue. His works have a labyrinthine, densely narrative quality that both invites and rewards extended contemplation. Rivera’s ability to manipulate symbols has allowed for compositions that speak incisively about the timeless, collective nature of human experience.
