JDJ is thrilled to inaugurate its new home in Tribeca at 370 Broadway with an intergenerational exhibition of artists who aim to create works that reach beyond the concrete world and tap into the metaphysical realm. Participating artists include:
Heather Guertin, Tessa, 2023, Oil on canvas, 66 x 54 in
Beverly Acha, falling flowers (o quatro cometas, o que?)[ flores que caen (or four comets, or what?)], 2023, Oil on linen, 43 1/4 x 35 3/8 in
Whether inspired by optical or nature-based phenomena, or their own personal sense of interiority, these artists use color, light, form, space, and poetic gesture as a means of exploring worlds within and outside of our corporeal existence.
Several through lines emerge—among them: a systematic process of removal or negation, whether of color or of material; a fascination with light and the ever-changing qualities of the atmosphere, and subtle shifts in color gradation that elicit an emotional response from the viewer.
