Tribeca, New York City: Salomon Arts Gallery is honored to present Matter in Movement, the Art Photography of Mitchel Gray: “Bodies in Action” and abstract expressionist paintings by Evan Sebastian Lagache.
While exploring theidea of inertia and motion, abstract and form through painting and photography, this exhibition unveils new techniques. Upon entering the gallery you see vignettes tracing the lithe dance form of superhuman performance bodies. Featured on opposite walls are abstract expressionistic, swirling color pools and perfectly-timed drip grids. The connectivity of form evolved by gravity and timing represents both artists’ defining moment–the exact capture of the dual combatants.
Against the force of gravity, bodies in competition and paint are aligned by perfect placement. The connection explores the painter’s pool of colors and structural grids, delicately formed and perfectly timed to capture the moving form. The seasoned artist (Mitchel) and the emerging artist (Lagache) work with dual visions to contrast yet connect lines and designs, the result of their split-second emotional decisions.
The maturity in Mitchel Gray’s work captures the nanosecond action dynamic of
champion bodies in motion. Dancing, skating, catching, jumping, and water polo-playing crystallize the moment through artistic expression. Visually provoking and seductive, it lures us into a ritualistic performance in athletic body discipline. The ultimate goal? All connectivity involves balancing and seizing the moment.
