Luis Garcia Nerey & Kevin Boyle @ HALL SPASSOV GALLERY

New To The Gallery
Kevin Boyle and Luis Garcia-Nerey
March 3 – April 30, 2017

Bellevue, WA – Beginning in March Hall Spassov Gallery is pleased to present two new artists for 2017.  The work of Luis Garcia-Nerey and Kevin Boyle are, at first, decidedly different from one another.  A closer examination of each artist’s intent reveals cross over in ideals and purpose. Both artists explore the notion that the group and the individual are interrelated and each uses varying degrees of abstraction, executed with extremely different methods, inviting the viewer to participate in the work.  Boyle, a photographer, uses both old and new technologies together inviting an inward look at our human nature. Garcia-Nerey, a painter and sculpture, explores a similar introspection and often incorporates photographs and found object to realize his intent. Boyles latest work, Herd, is a dramatic and beautiful look at natural hierarchy and the commonality between the human and the animal within a group.  Garcia-Nerey’s abstracted paintings shine a light on the way those two groups shape each other and in the artist’s own words “I believe that our existence depends on one another.”  “As you interact with my work, you construct it and it constructs you.”  Both artists, although different in nearly every visible way, share a reflective interest in the human condition and both have explored and manifested this interest with exacting skill and approach.

Join us for the opening: FIRST FRIDAY, March 3rd, from 5-8PM. This exhibition will run through April 30th.

FUNCTION+WILL @ GENERAL AUDIENCE PRESENTS OPENING RECEPTION JUNE 6TH 6-9PM MIAMI

FUNCTION+WILL @ GENERAL AUDIENCE PRESENTS OPENING RECEPTION JUNE 6TH 6-9PM MIAMI

In his latest installation @ General Audience Present, artist Luis Garcia-Nerey explores his ongoing fascination with interaction through Function + Will. The artist invites the audience to step up onto risers and insert themselves through openings in the ceiling to see what there is above. The installation spans the length of the gallery, dividing it into opposing active and inactive spaces. Within this division, a contrasting point occurs exploring the function of the installation versus the willingness of the audience’s participation. What transpires as a result is a pseudo ritualistic dynamic intended to stir discussion not only on choice and meaning but modern day society and the paradox of religion.

His paintings incorporate many layers of excavation, mark making, washes, and broad expanses of colors. The subtle narrative that is embedded in his work deals with the dynamics between Self and Other. Garcia-Nerey is interested in the concept that all things are countered by the existence of another, including the Self. Amidst this narrative he also intends his works to influence the viewer in many different directions, with no limits and little explanation. There is an elegant tension that pushes and pulls the surface with texture, line, and depth."
