Dwellers - Solo Exhibition, New York

Opening Reception: October 18, 6-8pm

On view: 10/18 - 11/18

E.TAY Gallery is pleased to present Dwellers, a solo exhibition of paintings by Lorella Paleni. Paleni’s work investigates the relationships between humans and animals. Her paintings are tangled scenes of encounters in the wild that invite viewers to grapple with their own ecological consciousness.  

 Through a process of overlapping, erasing, adding and scraping, dynamic landscapes emerge on Paleni’s canvases. Colors and compositions are arranged in a conflicting manner that evokes both mysticism and sinister intent. While the natural environment dominates the pictorial landscape, ambiguous human characters invade the settings to disrupt the harmony.

 In Dwellers, gloved human hands, ghostly industrious figures, monkeys, branches, and other beings inhabit the paintings. The foreground and background intersect with the creatures in an inextricable mesh illustrating that, despite the estrangement between human and nonhuman worlds, they are invariably part of an intricate whole.

 Paleni’s paintings are an attempt to question the power structure that lies at the root of our reasoning to question human exceptionalism and imagine new possibilities of existence in the world. The work seems to acknowledge that society is hierarchical, and that the few who rise to the top often do so at the expense of the voiceless.

Magic + Love x Art

The square root of “magic” plus “love” multiplied by “art squared” is an amusing equation that allows one to contemplate artworks that conjure the unknown. Traditionally magic was, in essence, a transformation — taking something less valuable and making it remarkable. The works in this group exhibition are infused with a cathartic spirit and vision of the universe that is expansive, always in motion and open to mystery. The message embedded in the tongue-in-cheek formula, that is the exhibition’s title, suggests that the artist’s role is to find inspiration in the unusual and to create enigmatic and thought provoking works. Artists are everyday shamans, their strategy and artistic process is to construct riddles out of the world.
