Art In FLUX Pops Up at Aloft Hotel, Harlem

unnamed

Art In FLUX Harlem and Aloft Hotel launch a collaboration to promote visual artists in Harlem.  On the evening of December 3, 2013 Art In FLUX presents two Harlem artists, Andre Woolery and Ruben Natal-San Miguel, in the lobby of Aloft on their dedicated art walls.  Aloft has a company-wide commitment to support the local artistic community by devoting space to presenting art.  Art In FLUX hopes to utilize the Aloft Harlem space to present unique and compelling exhibits that create conversation and highlight the dynamic contemporary art culture in Harlem.

This inaugural exhibit at Aloft is titled NOTHING IS COLORPROOF after a piece by Andre Woolery of the same name.  “Nothing is Colorproof” is a triptych of a gun shooting a swirling rainbow of colors.   “A gun represents both chaos and order. In the chaos of my thoughts and ideas, color is the organizing order. It brings clarity to a vision. If my mind were the weapon and my ideas were the bullets… then color would be the force propelling it forward” states Andre.

Both Andre and Ruben reflect on culture, race, and gender through their own mediums – paint & pushpins and photography, respectively.  They each capture moments in time and exploit the use of color and light to convey a sense of hope.  Ruben chronicles Harlem by photographing the people and the architecture that are the fabric of the community.  Andre paints iconic images hoping to open our eyes to a new set of possibilities.    Together these two artists open a window on our society and awaken our consciousness.

A new exhibit coming soon at ART IN FLUX.

EXPRESSIONS, a mini-exhibit opens at Art In FLUX Harlem on January 25, 6-9pm along with closing reception for three FLUX galleries


Expressions is an exhibition curated by and displaying the work of interns at Art in FLUX Harlem: Danniella Carter, Dykeisha Hill, Elina Stella, Erin Murphy, Jacqueline Jones, Kachine Moore, Kathy Veliz, Ken Weisensee, Marie Demple, Raven Willis, and Rebecca Alvarez.  Each artist contributes an image with the central focus of expression.  When joined together the images create an introduction to the vast ever-changing forms of human emotion.

Focusing on the portrait by way of painting and photography, the exhibit gives light to the variances of expression through the eye of different individuals.  The artists have based their work for this exhibition on the idea of capturing and embodying human emotion.  The show emphasizes the effect of expression and how it can influence someone’s initial perception of another individual.  Whether it is read from a smile, eyes, pose, or through a gut feeling, expression is an innate form of communication.  Through drawing, painting, collage and photography the interns collaborated to present their own lens to convey the emotional state of an individual.

“A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.” -Cezanne
