Exhibition Opening - David Fairbairn and Aleph Geddis

BY Marina Dobson | 18-Jun-2018
In these large-scale, etched portraits, the face and personality of each sitter emerges from a density of line work: Fairbairn’s exhibition is both a culmination of intense artistic investigation and a psychological journey. The sculptural works of Aleph Geddis live at the intersection of traditional methods and modernist forms, informed by woodworking and carving practices of the Pacific Northwest (USA) and Japan, and the essence of Platonic solids.

Return to the Stage • Solo Painting Exhibition of Akbar Yadegari • d’Angers Gallery • Semnan-Iran

BY d'Angers Gallery Press News Team | 07-Jun-2018
D'angers gallery is pleased to present "Return to the Stage" a selection of paintings created by Akbar Yadegari in recent years. Curator: Javid Ramezani. Akbar avoids the meanings given to his subjects; therefore he can concentrate on his own cognition; he starts a dialogue with the work at hand and continues working up to a point where it’s not clear which one is evolving, he or the painting. He thinks a true painting should change the artist as well as artist changes the painting. For Akbar "abstract" is striping any phenomenon of its imposed meaning. On display, mostly figurative are displayed with hints at the concept of migration. In his work, he has used various tools from brush to handkerchief and facial tissues. He has employed vibrant colors which are then smudged with duller hues.
