Exhibition “Subconscious Impulses”
Lalo Sanchez Del Valle


The Mexican plastic artist Lalo Sanchez del Valle will open his exhibition “Subconscious Impulses” on Tuesday 03 September, 2013, at the New Century Artists Art Gallery, 530 W. 25th Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10001.

The show contains 12 paintins of half format on canvas, mixed technique; and 6 esculputues, 3 bronce and 3 mixed media on bowling balls.

Sánchez Del Valle uses a technique which catalogs him as a surrealist and a cubist at the same time, since he is a city man and that insipires his works.

The artist, born in Mexico City, alumni of the School of Fine Arts in Paris, and the Parson School of Design and supported by great artistic career, defines his art as something that emerges from his subconscious and originates spontaneously.

Among his most representative works in this exhibition are “The Trip of the Spirit” and “Spoiled Girl”, both acrylic on canvas; the bronce sculptures “The Ball Boy” and “Bowling Ball #3”, which tells a surrealist story that moves on the sphere, leaving it without beginning or end.

His work has been exhibited in Paris, Mexico City and New York, he even participated in a Latin American colective exhibition at the Maison of the Unesco, in Paris.

Lalo uses an unique technique, based on an spontaneous spoting of the canvas, done in light tones with acrylic, which beging to take shapes: these shapes are done in different tones thus, layer over layer, the painting emerges out from within.

DIMENSIONALITIES
Group Exhibition, Artists: Deena Ramadan, Shane Boddington, Sara Eisman


New Century Artists, Inc., located in Chelsea, is pleased to announce a group exhibition of work from artists: Deena Ramadan, Shane Boddington, and Sara Eisman. The exhibition titled “Dimensionalities” is on view from May 14th 2013 - June1st 2013 with the Opening Reception on May 18th from 3-6pm. In this exhibition, each of the artists explores and emphasizes various elements of dimension in their work.

About The Work:
With a focus on creating dimensionality in what is thought of as flat, Deena focuses on patterns, traditionally thought to be flat, highly structured forms mostly used in the decorative arts. She seeks to challenge pattern’s traditional role, throwing it into spaces of 3 dimensionality and expression. Use of planar forms and overlapping, creates dimensionality within the designs and allows them to be placed within perceived 3 dimensional spaces in the work. The effects are that viewers will see pattern shift from plane to plane expressing both flatness and space simultaneously with larger chunks of patterns and colors used to express real spaces and figures. In other works the use of planes and overlapping creates a sense of depth and interaction between the forms within a larger cohesive pattern. All works are meant to emphasize a sense of simultaneous flatness and space to the viewer. Still adhering to overall balance and repetition, works are created organically by progressively adding lines or forms, each impacting the next addition and then finally coming together as a whole by the end of the piece.

Shane explores personal thought processes regarding to the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional to investigate the existence of potential relationships between painting and sculpture, and where the line is drawn. His work also intends to explore and question personal observations as to what is ‘real’ and what is ‘not. These themes are relevant and intertwined in present day global issues and are explored as such. The subject matter intends to provide connotations reflective of certain or particular social, political, capitalistic and economic notions. Chosen materials, or lack thereof, used in the construction of these pieces are influenced by their theme. Materials are of significant importance to the work and should be critically analyzed by the viewer as to what is ‘real’, and what is ‘not’.

Sara analyzes dimensionalities through a series of photographs that intended to display the variations of levels in dimension. Execution is employed though concepts, which are more fundamentally mathematical by description, as well as concepts that are more generally associated with physics.

Composition involves individual or multiple physical objects, with subject matter that involves combinations of collective or specified points for spatial relations that are complementary to, or in place of, individual or multiple components of mass, density, volume, electric charge, and time.

The obscure, radial, geometric, or static results coupled with lack of color transmits feelings of tension and uncertainty, and are motivated to provide a heightened response within the viewer.

About The Artists:
Deena Ramadan is an Egyptian-American born in Staten Island, New York, raised between New York and Cairo. Passionate about art since childhood, she began her professional art education with taking High Level Art as part of her International Baccalaureate Degree in high school. In university, she minored in Architectural Engineering taking a more structural outlet for creativity but returned to studying fine arts.

Shane Boddington was born April 8th 1986, in Harare, Zimbabwe. He has since lived in the United Kingdom, Europe, East Africa and the USA.

He Is currently studying Fine Arts at the Cardiff School of Art & Design.

Sara Eisman has lived in New York City since 2003.

Wish You Were Here. - 1975 ~ 1995
Photographer Max Fujishima


New Century Artists, Inc., located in Chelsea, is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of the work of the photographer Max Fujishima. The exhibition, titled “Wish You Were Here—1975-1995,” opens on April 17. Max captures and expresses the relentless flow of time, and of moments that exist in the interface between the photographer and his subject located on the other side of the lens. There is a consistency to his creative style and view of the world that flows through diverse themes, no matter what the subject of his lens happens to be: nature, the city, dolls. He does not construct a set, nor does he insert anything into his pictures or otherwise manipulate them, preferring instead to capture the subject as it is, under the natural light of the sun. In this new exhibition more than 80 pieces of his artwork will be displayed. Each of the images displayed is a constituent part of what may be considered his life’s work—a series of photographs of the Empire State Building, taken from another high-rise over the course of twenty years. “One day,” he explains, “looking out from an expansive window in the direction of downtown, I happened to catch a glimpse of the Empire State Building. Though I see it all the time, I felt an impulse that moment that drove me to pick up my camera. I become absorbed in snapping pictures of it. That was the beginning of the ‘Wish You Were Here’ series.” This exhibition is a magnificent collection of artwork that is an expression of the 20 years Max has spent continually photographing a single subject, beginning with the inspiration he felt on that day long ago. Max Fujishima was born in Mie Prefecture, Japan. He is a graduate of visual design in the Department of Fine Arts and Crafts at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. While working as the creative director of an advertising agency, he pursued photography on the side before devoting himself to it full time in 2003. In 2007, he organized a two-person exhibition, “The Moment Becomes Eternal.” Since then, he has continued the energetic pursuit of his creative activities.

10 YEARS LATER – CHANGES IN NEW YORK SINCE 9/11

New Century Artists, Inc. will present 10 Years Later—Changes in New York Since 9/11 from February 14 to March 3, 2012. The exhibition is comprised of 31 color photographs by Chana Benjamin focusing on architecture, people, and nature. The opening receptions will be held on Thursday, February 16, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, February 25, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The photographs portray the changes that have taken place in New York City in the past decade. They were taken in three separate locations: the Highline, Union Square, and World Trade Center. Many glass buildings have been constructed along the Highline that offer astonishing aerial views of the city and can be seen as the perfect platform for combining architecture , people, and nature. Union Square has a constant flow of people. With the advent of the smartphone, young people can stay more connected—yet, at the same time, are they more alienated? Photographs of the Occupy Wall Street movement are included that were taken at Zucotti Park, across the street from World Trade Center, prior to the encampment being forced out by the city.

Finally, photographs of the buildings being erected at Ground Zero round out the exhibit’s theme, with images of the 9/11 Memorial and One World Trade Center on view. For many of us, this is the first time back to the site since the day before 9/11. Chana Benjamin has been photographing for the past 40 years. She is the president, director, and founding member of New Century Artists, Inc., a Senior Fine Art Appraiser at O’Toole-Ewald Art Associates, Inc., an Assistant Professor at Parsons the New School for Design, and an instructor at Pratt Institute.
