Elegies: Works in Abstraction
Curated by Anthony Anchundo

An elegy is a song of longing, a lament for things, for times, for loved ones that have passed and gone.

And elegy can be gentle or powerful. It can bring weeping or simply a soft smile at the remembering of something beautiful and beloved.

The idea of using the elegy as a theme for visual art follows these same contours, especially for this show dedicated to presenting the works of six prominent abstract artists.

Just like a spoken elegy, abstraction points to something beyond itself and inherently attaches itself to something of the past whether a form or a ghost, a memory, or an idea.

Each of our artists have selected from their work pieces that express the idea of an elegy – to choose works that represent their own vision of longing and remembrance of things lost.

These are their songs in visual form.

“Pattern Paintings: an exhibition of pattern and tape paintings” by Patrick Donovan

donovan eflyerThe Paolo Mejia Art Gallery and Design Studio proudly presents Pattern Paintings: An exhibition of pattern and tape paintingsby Patrick Donovan.

This solo show will exhibit the elaborate and detailed paintings of capturing patterns in it’s extreme redundancy. Patrick Donovan is a painter who meticulously paint patterns and juxtaposes them by creating the idea of trompe l’oeil visuals on paper that are taped together forming grid patterns. The result is his mind-boggling perfection of painted pattern making.

Come pass by his art show, see great artwork and purchase a piece or two for your collection or as a gift.
