Gallery Hours: Thursday to Sunday 1 to 7PM, or by appointment
In this exhibition of new oil paintings, Mark Tambella revisits his earlier figurative works through an expressionistic lens. Central to this new series are human focus and energy, which are forces that can be decoded and meditated upon through painting. The scenes are culled from a variety of sources, and employ techniques acquired from the artist’s later landscape, still life, and portrait works.
Tambella – who, in addition to his longtime visual art practice, is also well-regarded for his set design and production – describes these paintings as “constructions of the modeled, the imagined, the stolen, and the remembered … built like houses in a psychic landscape.”
