October 28 - November 22 Opening reception: October 30th, 6-8 PM
Studio 26 Gallery presents “Beyond Skies and Waters” by Luz Fandino.
Please join us for the Opening Reception on Friday, October 30th, 6-8 PM.
Fandino's work is intuitive, showing layers of emotion and delicate forms. It is also ambiguous and poetic inviting the viewer to pause and contemplate the flow of imagination in a peaceful landscape. In this new body of work "Beyond Skies and Waters" Water represents a symbol of movement, where everything is shifting all the time and nothing remains permanent; Sky is also a symbol of transformations in life, cyclical changes. By defining just a few elements (passages, boats, stairs) Fandino unveils us a serene place of beauty and harmony beyond space and time.
Luz Fandino is a Colombian born artist currently residing in Brazil. She holds a degree in Visual Arts and postgraduate work in French philosophy. She also worked at the Smithsonian Institution in iconography research in the 90 s where she developed herself as an artist. She has shown extensively in Latin America, Europe and the US.
The exhibit is on view from October 28th through November 22nd. Gallery hours: Wednesday - Sunday 1 PM - 8 PM

Adeena Karasick is a New York based poet, performer, cultural theorist and media artist and the author of seven books of poetry and poetics. Writing at the intersection of Conceptualism and neo-Fluxus performatics, her urban, Jewish feminist mashups have been described as “electricity in language” (Nicole Brossard) and noted for their “cross-fertilization of punning and knowing, theatre and theory” (Charles Bernstein) "a twined virtuosity of mind and ear which leaves the reader deliciously lost in Karasick's signature “syllabic labyrinth” (Craig Dworkin). Most recently is This Poem (Talonbooks, 2012) and The Medium is the Muse: Channeling Marshall McLuhan (NeoPoiesis Press, 2014). She teaches Literature, Critical Theory at Pratt institute and at St. John’s University in New York and is co-founding Director of KlezKanada Poetry Festival and Retreat.
