Hoboken Historical Museum presents New Works by Lou Carbone

(HOBOKEN, NJ) -- The Hoboken Historical Museum presents the recent work of Hoboken master painter Lou Carbone in an exhibit called "COVID".  The exhibit runs from Saturday, May 7 until Sunday, July 3 in the Upper Gallery.  It consists of 25 16 x 20 acrylic paintings done under quarantine.

With diverse influences that include cubism, surrealism and the Mexican muralists, Lou’s paintings are a series of pictorial spaces borne of personal experience as filtered through dreams and illusions. The images of anonymous figures in common settings depict ritual happening combined with feelings of sexual tension that are woven with a quiet elegant motion.

Each canvas is a merging of fact and fantasy that opens a window to animated yet mysterious places. Many of the objects and figures are structured, ordered and linear yet they create elements that have references to the mystical and spiritual, using multiple perspective and intense color. Lou has developed an assortment of visual symbols in an effort to pare cultural traditions and rituals to their essence and intensify the relationships between his subjects. His tools may be color, line and composition but the imagery is formed through the visceral process of thought.

There will be opening reception with the artist on Friday, May 6 from 2:00pm - 5:00pm.   On Friday, May 6 at 7:00pm, tune in and chat with Lou at a live, online Artist Talk with Museum Director Bob Foster on their YouTube channelPast Artist Talks may be replayed any time on YouTube.

The exhibit is supported by a block grant from the State/County Partnership program for the Arts, administered by the Hudson County Division of Cultural and Heritage Affairs.
