Gerard Ellis’ ‘All The Artificial Barriers’ at Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery
Santo Domingo.- Lyle O. Reitzel Contemporary Art Gallery, founded in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic in 1995, is thrilled to celebrate the first year anniversary of its New York branch in the heart of Lower East Side with “All The Artificial Barriers,” a solo exhibition of new and recent works by New York-based, Dominican artist Gerard Ellis.
It includes large, mixed media works on canvas, as well as medium and small size works on wood panels.
The work of Gerard Ellis is indeed painting with a purpose. For the viewer of these works, Ellis creates visual compositions that excite on a visceral level with vivid juxtapositions of color and form coupled with the possibility of providing potent metaphors.
They exist as a vehicle for Ellis; they serve not only as a cathartic medium but also as a profound, intimate and detailed exploration of the unavoidable conflicts and tensions intrinsic to being.
The show will be on view from Friday, June 9 (6 to 10pm) until August 1, 2017.
