“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

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.
