Dualism in Surrealism

To the viewer the interplay between beautiful natural themes in subtle juxtaposing tones immediately relaxes the mind and Oxford Dictionary defines surreal as allows the viewers to elicit the natural “having qualities of surrealism; bizarre: world/human interplay at work in his a surreal mix of fact and fantasy”. This pieces. “Change, transition, displacedualism – the interplay between fact and ment, and connectivity are a few of the fantasy as expressed by an artists’ imagthemes that can be often found in my ination exposes the reality of dreams in work”.

Playing with fact and fantasy

inspiration from a variety of storytellers in formats that range from music and movies to ancient folklore and comic book adventures, says that “Surrealism is any creation free from the control of conventional reason”. He creates “works that seek to investigate and/or celebrate the mysteries between dreams and reality”.

Where one artist will try to evoke the relationship between dream and reality, another toys with pure imagination. “I am most interested in creating prints and paintings that stem from pure imagination”, says John D. Gall, a painter and printmaker from Jamestown, North Carolina. “My subjects may be dreamed,

imagined, or experienced, as an autobiographical interpretation, but those invented from my imagination are the most precious to me.” Gall, whose works are whimsical, asks the viewers’ minds to venture off into a metaphorical land by using familiar albeit recasted imagery and self curates the separate, unusual components into a well orchestrated symphony of imaginative interactions. A simple walk through of his work is not possible as the many, deliberately placed elements require careful inspection and dissection to properly sense the overture of narratives emanating from each piece. “I love using realistic drawing and painting techniques to pull the viewer into previously unimagined worlds where humor, whimsy, and strangeness all co-exist.” Although the Oxford Dictionary seeks to define what is surreal and in essence the foundation of surrealism, the fantasy of an artist is a world unto its own. “The dream is the liberation of the spirit from the pressure of external nature, a detachment of the soul from the fetters of matter.” ― Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dream. The dreamlike warping of reality is perhaps what draws so many people to Surrealism. There is no single exemplification or interpretation of a dream, just as there is no illustrated attestation to what is a surrealist work of art. This lack of a fundamental structure in the dualism of fact and fantasy cements the fundamental discrepancies in creation and interpretation and allows creators and viewers to stare at the wall and dream.

Ann Jackson Gallery Synergy Fine Art Gallery

Quaintly tucked in a small unassuming hamlet not more than 20 minutes north of Atlanta, Roswell is a perfect destination for the visual arts enthusiast. Seven galleries are conveniently located near the center of town, making Roswell a perfect walkable visual arts locale with a wide variety of art and artists. Each gallery carries work that is unique in both its technique and style. Genres range from landscapes, realism, abstract, to crafts. There are multiple ways to browse the Roswell galleries; we did it by walking South to North. Making your way south to north you pass Oak Street. Within an unassuming strip mall you find Muse & Co. Fine Art. A relatively new addition to Roswell, Muse & Co. Fine Art exhibits vibrant contemporary art from emerging and established artists, in both paintings and sculpture. Beneath and behind Muse & Co. Fine Art there is a wonderful shared studio space called Cowgirl Studios. There you will find artists working on paintings, sculpture, and jewelry. A little up Route 9, and immediately at the base of Canton Street you will find Ann Jackson Gallery. A family owned gallery, Ann Jackson Gallery carries work from local, national, and international artists. The mediums available at Ann Jackson Gallery span the definition of artwork mediums as you can find work in any type. Immediately across from Ann Jackson,

Welcome to Roswell, pg 11-17

north of the park is Elizabeth Way where you will find Vinings Gallery and Taylor Kinzel Gallery. Vinings Gallery carries an impressive mix of nationally recognized and emerging artists. Modern still life, urban impressionism, and contemporary landscapes are but a few of the works you will find gracing their walls. Down the short street, Taylor Kinzel Gallery boasts of carrying contemporary fine art by Southern artists. They achieve this by combining a well choreographed collection of paintings, sculptures, glass, and jewelry, all displayed in a quaint early 1920’s former beauty shop. Turning back to Canton Street, and taking a left on Webb Street you will find Synergy Fine Art Gallery. A wonderful, collective of independent artists, with each showcasing different mediums and varied genres. Finishing up Canton you run across Plumtree Village. A high-end collection of boutiques and shops, it is a perfect spot to finish the walk through Roswell. Before you stop for a quick snack be sure to check out SLM Studio/Gallery. A studio/ gallery featuring works by Sandra Milton, it’s spacious interior allows you to take in the different mediums and genres of work. A perfect destination for the visual arts enthusiast, Roswell has a little bit of everything, giving each gallery and the arts scene as a whole a large city feel with small town charm.


First Friday is RAD First Friday Art Walks & the Roswell Arts District If you’re planning a trip to enjoy the visual arts in the greater Atlanta area, or just planning an excursion to Roswell Georgia, be sure to pencil in the first Friday of the month as a tentative arrival date. As you’ve read before (the previous article; if you haven’t shame on you) Roswell Georgia is a quaint little town with a strong visual arts presence. The walking-distance-nature of Roswell makes it a perfect candidate for enjoyment during a First Friday Art Walk. “First Fridays are a chance for collectors to enjoy the ‘aesthetic experience’ of the Historic Roswell Art District… and take in the exhibits at a couple of the galleries, enjoy dinner… and take the complimentary trolley to a couple of the galleries…”, says Donna McDonald, co-owner of Muse & Co. Fine Art. Indeed, the organizational attributes of First Friday are amazing and a gracious bow can be accorded to the Roswell Arts District (RAD). Started in 2006 (or 2005, let’s just roll with it) RAD was founded to organize and fund the Art Walks, create a collective PR opportunity, and promote the arts in Historic Roswell. The creation of a collective gallery organization created an “open line of communication between the gallery owners”, says McDonald, one of RAD’s founders, and was formed after a few of the biannual artwalk meetings.

First Friday grew out of RAD in 2014. “The Roswell First Friday artwork [sic] allows people to peek into the art scene without feeling obligated to purchase work… like a wine tasting of sorts”, says Nicole Merkens co-owner of Cowgirl Studios. Indeed the laid back feel of First Friday takes the intimidation out of art enjoyment while at the same time allows patrons to be immersed in the visual arts. First Friday “welcomes true art appreciators and provides… an opportunity to focus on art”, says Barbara Rush, co-owner of Synergy Fine Art Gallery. As for Roswell as a whole, “The First Friday Art Walk has had a tremendous effect on the Roswell Art scene”, says Mary Kinzel Mean, co-owner of Taylor Kinzel Gallery, “It seems we have more… people coming in from ‘ITO’ (inside the perimeter) to experience the many varied galleries of Historic Roswell… It’s a fun and consistent way to introduce new artists, new works… and connect with patrons.“ If you’re ever in the area, passing through, or planning a trip and want to engage with art, artists, or just have a fun night out, Roswell is definitely a destination that beckons the creatively appreciative mind.

inside her.“ It is the energy, the passion, the freedom, the color, the boldness, that I feel to my core. That is the kind of art I want to create. People are always looking for symbols or meaning in expressive abstracts. It is my belief, that it is meant to be felt, not understood. I feel blessed, every day, to be on such an incredible journey.”

Transitions Carol Christie Reception: Aug. 7, 6-9pm When we were first introduced to Carol’s work, she was painting these big bright florals. They were almost primitive and childlike but they had an amazing energy to them. It was infectious and exhilarating. We found out later that the flowers were a subject inspired early on by her Mother’s love of gardening. Later, as we discovered she painted them intuitively to music, it made sense to us that she would paint a subject she knew well so that her senses were free to create and express more efficiently. As the flowers began to disappear, however, and her work became more abstract, a light that was a mere glimmer seemed to ignite 1. Carol Christie, Soulful Essence, , acrylic, 60” x 36”

Inspired by the works of artist Joan Mitchell, and more recently the retrospective show of Willem De Kooning, both of which moved her to tears, Carol’s process is one of spontaneity and spatial rhythms – quick bold strokes that gradually evolve into large, sweeping passages of color and shape. Layers of paint, and Christie’s signature marks, are applied, painted over, and added again, until she feels the painting is complete. The challenge is invigorating, often frustrating, but always rewarding. There is no plan; there is no vision. Every mark, and every swipe of color, brings about its own relationship and the process continues until the painting has evolved into a harmonious work of art. Carol has quickly become a nationally-recognized and award-winning Abstract Expressionist painter. From her earliest memories, she recalls wanting to be an artist. She studied Art Education at Central Michigan University and relocated to Atlanta in 1969 to raise her family. She continued, over the years, to develop her craft. She participated in numerous academic courses and workshops, but believes her real education has been in her studio. She has been exhibiting and selling her work since 1990 and has been with Taylor Kinzel Gallery for over 12 years.

To Be Or Not To Be Abstract Genres in Roswell Over the past few decades there has been a trend of younger artists gravitating towards abstraction as their avenue of artistic expression (we use abstraction in broad terms). The reasons for this has been dissected, analyzed, and double analyzed. Many have found the trend to be the result of art schools allowing their students greater freedom in their learning process as opposed to the classical art school syllabi. Others have pointed to the great increase in self-thought artists who skip art school altogether as an anti-establishment mindset takes over. “You can’t teach art, that’s the irony of art school. The only thing you can’t teach at art school is art.”, says iconic London-based photographer David Bailey in the The Telegraph UK in 2013 as he prepared to launch a new exhibition of 250 photographs at the National Portrait Gallery.

Regardless of reasons and throughout the back and forths regarding abstract art one cannot forget that all art, whether realist or abstract has its critics, but also it’s very vehement backers. “Abstract art has come into being as a necessary expression of the feelings and thoughts of our age; it has added new dimensions to creative painting.”, says famed (now deceased) abstract artist Frank Leonard Brooks. The self-expressive nature of many abstract works beckon artists to delve deep within themselves and produce pieces that some would call more personal on a fundamentally internal level, bringing to canvas that which is emotional hidden and not easily ascertained in other mediums. However this self-expressive quality can also be a curse as it may be grossly uninterpretative by many and produce varying degrees of both admiration and condemnation.

17 Many can argue the dualistic nature of abstract art appreciation is the vacillating sentiments and impressions it can leave on each viewer. What some see as art, others see as child’s play. “I think the old adage of one man’s trash being another man’s treasure fits well here with so many new artists arriving everyday there is definitely something for everyone on the planet.” says Barbara Rush, co-owner of Synergy Fine Art Gallery. This “something for everyone” is a sentiment shared amongst artists and galleries with whom we’ve spoken with in Roswell. “The beauty of abstract art is that the answers are in the mind of the viewer. With a little imagination, your mind can see what it wants.”, says Nicole Merkens, co-owner of Cowgirl Studios. This has been beneficial to both artists and galleries as it allows rotation and buyer appreciation in new stylistic approaches and conceptual changes. “When our artists approach us with new original works and new ideas, styles or concepts, we get ex-

cited and see the possibilities of ‘what can be’”., says Mary Kinzel Means, co-owner of Taylor Kinzel Gallery. “Too many dealers… can’t see the potential of their own artist’s creative faculty”, continues Kinzel. Something for everyone seems to be so truistic cliché, especially as it applies to abstract art. Art is meant to be judged, both by those with knowledgably artistic appreciative minds and those whom the former would condescendingly consider artistic laymen. Perhaps that is the artistic beauty of abstract art; the fact, both knowledgeable and laymen can sit together (although some might not want to) and have varying opinions and discuss a particular piece until the body of work has been dissected through and through until the examiners autopsy of the piece is concluded, with or without an art appreciators’ stamp of approval.

In addition to increasing our local traffic, we are now having customers from Charlotte, Charleston, and other areas come into the gallery directly as a result of seeing our ads and articles in the Art Guide. We have been quite pleased by the sales generated by the extra traffic from other areas from art lovers who seek us out when they come to Raleigh for meetings, vacations, or visiting friends. It is a win-win to be in a Guide with wide circulation—we get extra traffic and we get to see what other galleries are doing.

Flowers and Gardens August 5-29, 2015 Reception: August 7, 6-9pm It’s high summer and gardens are in full bloom. You have to love the summer garden with all its bright colors and heavenly smells, even the weeds look pretty when they flower. Flowers have played a role in most art forms provoking emotions and as gestures of sentiment. With a Google search, you can uncover lists of flowers and their historic meanings, their use in folklore and fairy lore, and numerous quotes by famous artists and writers. William Shakespeare’s works have many references to flowers, some of which directly reference summer flowers. The Winter’s Tale : “these are flowers of middle summer, and I think they are given to men of middle age.” Sonnet 98: “the sweet smell of different flowers in odour and in hue could make me any summer’s story tell”.

Kathryn Patel, Dahlia Whimsey

311 has invited artists to participate in a juried show that celebrates flowers and gardens. Works span the gamut from abstract to very realistic in a variety of media. We hope you’ll stop by this month and visit our summer garden.

Conversations: Linda Eddins Compliments are wonderful and essential in the art world. Specifically, I am talking about complementary colors, colors; that lie opposite each other on the color wheel. Complementary colors put life in a painting. They invite you in and hold you in an hypnotic trance, if only for a moment. Warmth complementing coolness; complements make skin tones look alive and healthy. They make snowy winter landscapes look warm and inviting. They brighten highlights and deepen shadows. When complements are mixed together they create luscious, rich neutrals. Complementary colors are fundamental in creating beautiful, eye-catching art. I continue to study the works of others and consciously apply the lessons. I especially love to study the works of John Singer Sargent. He was a master at the use of

complementary color. He made it look so simple. The use of compliments does not come easily, however. It takes practice…lots and lots of practice. Having a color wheel within sight is a great way to begin and an invaluable tool. Refer to it often and with practice, the use of compliments will come more naturally. You will develop an eye for them and will need to refer to the color wheel less and less. Try it. Your pieces will be all the more intriguing, more alive…I’m just saying.
