Above image: James Pustorino, "All Things conceived shall realize liberation," acrylic and pencil on denril, 54" x 110", courtesy of the artist. Amazing idea to show James for more than just one month- April 2 - May 30, 3009: Chambers@916 presents "Cosmic Strips," works in acrylic and pencil on denril by James Pustorino. The large scale works will be rotated periodically throughout the two month exhibition(fun idea).
The "Cosmic Strips" are a cosmology in 20 parts that presents Pustorino's perception of the universe in a multi-layered, visual narrative influenced by orchestral fantasias, comics and science texts. Using abstract painting, observational rendering, and graphic forms, each panoramic panel is like a super-sized comic strip that presents a story full of symbols and abstract language.
Opening reception: April 2, 2009 6-9pm.
Artist reception: May 7, 2009 6-9pm.
Gallery hours: 11am-5:30pm, Tuesday through Saturday, or by appointment.
I am so glad that Chambers is doing well in their "smart" new location- visit them ...I hope they have cute Champers again...
