(LONG BRANCH, NJ) -- "Finely Bursting Through" - Inaugural exhibition for Art at Whitechapel Projects will open on February 5, 2023 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. The exhibition features work by Elaine Su-Hui, Amanda Morales, Scott Szegeski, and Ori Carino. It was organized by Aimée McElroy & Summer Deaver. The exhibition runs until February 25.
The works included in this exhibition speak to the simplicity of form, object and space and have been inspired by nature, culture and/or spirituality.
Scott Szegeski’s gyotaku prints will be shown in conjunction with his site-specific skateboarding video projection filmed in the days leading up to this installation. Overlaying video with printmaking, the artist’s process becomes the work.
Brooklyn based artist Amanda Morales creates visual layers and patterns in her hand made quilts with a painterly eye on composition and abstraction, yet breaks from 2-dimensional constraints of a canvas.
Paintings by NYC street artist and traditionally trained thangka painter, Ori Carino offer depth and anthropological reflection.
Natural Ink Drawings by Elaine Su-Hui provide an energetic portal. Su-Hui describes her work as being made, "slowly by hand but are urgent reminders of our true ecological nature and inherent wisdom."
Whitechapel Projects is an event space, restaurant and nano-brewery, whose owners have a passion for food, art, nature and community. It is located at 15 2nd Avenue in Long Branch, New Jersey.
This exhibition is made possible by the generous support of Whitechapel Projects.
