The panels may fold together for protection when traveling, and then be unfolded when one’s destination has been reached. The word diptych comes from the Greek root ‘dis,’ meaning ‘two,’ and ‘ptykhe,’ meaning ‘fold,’ and was the name of the folding writing tablets used in Roman times. Two, three (triptych) or more panels usually at the same size.  The concept of multiples in art dates back centuries. In ecclesiastical art, the religious content presented on the two panels was a matched set, such as: Christ and the Theotokos; Saints Peter and Paul; or the

Diptych Triptych & Multiples

Annunciation with Archangel Gabriel on one side and the Virgin Mary on the other. In the fifteenth and sixteenth century, diptychs & triptychs were most popular among the Netherlands and European painters. They modified the concept of diptych for traditional subjects such as “Adam and Eve” and painted commissioned portraits of wealthy patrons in the same style: “husbands and their wives.” Modern artists have used the word diptych in the title of works consisting of two paintings that never actually connected, but intended to be hung close together as a pair, such as Andy Warhol’s famous Marilyn Diptych (1962). This exhibition examines recent works by artists produced in the New York and New Jersey area over the last three years. The thirteen artists on the roster all work in different medias but the show unites them under one concept, with each artist delivering his or her own unique interpretation of multiples. The canvas, paper, or other surface is often a point of departure. It is the artist who says, “One is not enough.” However, the usage of diverse innovative medias calls for an expansion of the term Diptych or Triptych beyond the traditional arrangement of side-byside panels.  We are exploring the Diptych Triptychs and Multiples in a wide spectrum of medias, including video, sculpture, photography, recyclable objects, and biomorphic shaped canvases. The arrangement of these forms also varies from horizontal to vertical to tandem. In many cases there is a combination of more than one technique in creating a new genre. The division of the complete art allows each unit to justify its own existence and space, but also to create a stronger message when in conjunction with its other.  Today’s artists working with Diptychs, Triptychs and Multiples use this format to assert a variety of ideas; some for imagery storytelling that continues from one panel to another; others to present two or three images that are closely related; and still others to accent contrasting ideas, creating stronger visceral conflict often expressed by color. However different the visual message of each piece, it presents a dialogue between the multiple units of its construction.

It is the time and the transitional process of collecting the shattered pieces and bringing them back together which interest me the most. I have been dealing through several incarnations with the imagery of this work. The concept was awakened as I was going through old family albums from Poland. The first version of the work was created using the pictures that formed the THREAD. For the present version, I used a red THREAD that symbolizes the story that passes in the family through four generations.


I paint New York streetscapes. Generic buildings, crosswalks, sky, street trees, signs and vehicles are the typical subject matter of my paintings. Recently I have been focusing on images of New York City street trees. Their presentations as multiples is appropriate to them, because this format emphasized both their individuality, and their commonality.

Picnic: Four gaming jars each containing a mystery item form a family of four enjoying an outing among others similarly outfitted for relaxation. Grey Drawing: Hair nets form a varied, sensitive line drawing when presented here on a neutral “paper” wall. Others may view a single hair net as a drawing independent of the group. Still others may question the use of a woman’s hair covering as drawing material. Translucent waxed paper bags encourage the lines to “push and pull” as witnessed by the viewer.


In 2006 I served as the official photographer for Brown University’s archaeological excavations in Egypt. On visits to the Cairo Museum I found myself habitually transfixed by a particular group of small, exquisitely carved wooden figures that I’m told may have been created as containers for the souls of royal servants. Although almost 4,000 years old, they have timeless and immediate presences which speak of benevolence, heart, fragility, vulnerability and hope. I feel enormously connected to them, as though they are reflecting back to me a part of my essence as a human being.

Marianne Barcellona

The memory of the little Egyptian carvings is the reference and motivation for my I Am Here paintings. These portraits are usually slow to evolve, often taking days to weeks sometimes over years - of layering, painting, sanding, waiting, scraping, thinking they’re done, realizing they’re not done, starting the process again. Then unscheduled, a presence will finally appear in its own time with its own personality.

Hood earlier in my life I could get close to the cloud cover that was often low against the mountain range coming from the Pacific coast. They would often be gray and raining with mist and blurred edges and halos. The end of a shower meant the landscape would be washed clean with the air shimmering and surfaces drenched with color from sunlight. These two ideas: luminous color and airy surfaces have stayed with me.   There is a translucent beauty in cells under a microscope in a lab. They pulse with life. They are struggling to move and grow. I think of dots as molecules-everything moves and changes; motion is constant; migration is always with us. The pulse of life.


The inspiration for my recent work is found in cityscapes and our emotional attachment to them. The shifting interplay of light, shadow, and color seen through the prism of mood and memory provides moments of surprise and wonder for me. I am intrigued by the reflections of buildings which often create distorted, mysterious, and eerie visions of great beauty.

Janie Milstein

I combine multiple canvases and other materials to convey the angular relationships between buildings, and paint and other flexible media to represent the ephemeral reflections. Reflections No 6 is a diptych, hinged as in the ancient form, but with the hinge attached to fold backward instead of forward. I made the fold stationary to reference the angularity of buildings and the reflections in them. The stationary fold preserves the angular relationship between the panels.

I explore color and shape in its pure and simple essence unrelated to external representation. However, my work is driven by real places like beaches and landscapes. In these large open spaces I feel the monumentality of the world, infinite air and the density of time past. My paintings are geometric masses of color. They are oil paint and wood dowels on shaped canvas. They appear sculptural, yet mount flat on the wall. The space surrounding the pieces is activated and is as important as the individual shapes and volumes. Pieces seemingly defy gravity and appear to exist in boundless space.


From 1989 to 1999 I only made drawings. Most of these drawings were card or book sized. Some worked equally well upside down. In the Atlanta Card Trick drawings, done in the early to mid 2000’s, I combined and enlarged two flipped drawings into one to make a third.  I showed a number of these shuffled “card trick” drawings in Atlanta in 2005. Untitled Diptych is a two-panel painting from an ongoing series of paintings I am doing in which marks are made from pushing drying paint with an index finger. This pair is from a suite of ten white-on-white paintings imagined for the four walls of a white-walled room. As tactile as they are compositional, I see them as paintings for the blind.

University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI, 2002. My color photographs are based on careful observation of street-level details to which people typically pay little attention. This close focus on the complex environment of New York and other great cities can reveal unexpected beauty, mystery and meaning. In each diptych I have paired photographs which resonate with each other on formal and emotional terms. Their relationship is not simple. One notes contrasts as well as connections, and meanings more ambiguous than clear.


My drawing surface of choice since 2008 is the paper take-out coffee cup. Its sturdy matte surface is a wonder and delight, taking beautifully the jet-black and the earthy colors of the Faber and Castell India ink brush pens that I favor. I save the cups from the hot drinks I buy and occasionally collect them from other artists with whom I meet for tea or coffee around town. I wash and dry them and record on the bottom the date, place and occasion, as well as the drink that was consumed, thus capturing the social moment just passed.

My work as an architect and a visual artist is always to strongly engage my desires to create a project in a space. I developed a series of works that are based on grids and line. I’m mixing architectural elements and urban landscapes in an abstract way, by reconstructing fragments of pictures and composing them into a larger, screen-like image.


I like the physical action of building. Without a preconceived plan, I assemble my salvaged wood, directed by what occurs in the relationship of the shapes. I need to see and feel the work in actual space. My sculpture is influenced by my visceral response to dance. This sensation allows me to feel the rhythm, balance, weight and shifts in movement during construction. Duet is a partnership between two forms. They lean towards each other, holding their balance through a gentle touch in the center.

Shaped from flat stainless steel sheet metal pressed under tons of hydraulic pressure into two mating forms, the sculpture was then arranged into 3 columns and two rows of rectangles of different lengths and powder coated with polished areas. Starwave is a construction of found plastic that has been upcycled into a tiled arrangement of rotated forms. Pop rivets hold together the material which was sourced from plastic water jugs.
