The New World of Surrealism in the 21st Century

The World is living a dangerous age with a population of billions that can´t be possible an existence of a social equilibrium. The wars created to sell weapons, the radical terrorism coming from medieval societies with access to 21st century technology to combat the savage and monopoly capitalism of modern imperialism. All these thems are including to influence the modern and contemporary surrealist movement.

The Fiction of the dream of the beautiful with lyrical meaning push the surrealism to the hope of a new life.

Where the colours interact with the “blue thinking” and opposing each other to “dark thinking”.

Flying is the dream that transmits freedom and fantasy where the wings dispense and the arms stretch for the balance of the flight waving through the buildings, mountains and valleys, sea and rivers.

Understading surrealism of 20th century the surrealism of 21st century open its doors to interely and total freedom.

JM Gallery Presents: Ceramicist Linda Gossett April 22

LindaGossettgateway

Join JM Gallery Saturday, April 22, from 5 until 8 for our opening reception featuring ceramicist Linda Gossett.

JM Gallery is pleased to present a collection of porcelain assemblages by Linda Gossett. Starting with a curious cache of found objects, Linda recasts and playfully reassembles her material into talismanic figurines that appear both familiar and absurd. Mass-produced, plaster tchotchkes become refined collectibles in the style of 18th-century European ceramics—refined but nonsensical, as hands emerge from birds’ breasts, shoes grow out of a duck’s head on a deer’s body, and children’s legs run away with an eagle. This is an imagery of contrast meant to challenge our preconceptions. Where we normally expect to see cheap plaster knickknacks, we see light, fragile porcelain; but then, where we expect to see elegant subjects, we see new forms of absurdity and incongruity. With such contrasts, Linda questions cultural values—what do we value, what do we desire, and where does the desire for possession enter the conversation? As she explains, “I offer my art as a springboard for the imagination.”

LuminArte Presents: Dreams and Divinities March 21 – May 2

To Embrace_Zeljko Djurovic

LuminArte is honored to host the finale of the travelling international exhibition, “Dreams and Divinities Equinox,” which opens on March 21st, 2015 in celebration of the Spring Equinox. The principal visual styles showcased in the project include Visionary Art, Surrealism and Fantastic Realism, and are inspired by cultural and spiritual references, Sacred Geometry, elements of nature, explorations into the subconscious mind, visions, dreams and fantasy. Participating artists hail from around the world and include Liba Waring Stambollion, Peter Gric, Andrew Gonzalez, Joe MacGown, Martina Hoffmann, Emma Watkinson, Otto Rapp, Adam Scott Miller, Cody Seekins, Patrick McGrath Muniz, Sandra Yagi, Bruce Rimell, Raul Casillas, Miguel Tio, David Heskin and Aloria Weaver, Chris Dyer, Erich Moffit, Hector Pineda, Carrie Ann Baade, Zeljko Djurovic, Roku Sasaki, Marcus McAllister, Elisabeth Slettnes, Android Jones, Gabriela Garza Padilla, Martin Stensaas and Sunny Strasburg. The opening reception begins at 7:00PM on Saturday with artists in attendance; and both the reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.

The project Dreams and Divinities was conceived by Paris Based artist, Liba Waring Stambollion; and through a series of books, exhibits and events, Dreams & Divinities has offered the public a window into an emerging planetary movement of ‘Conscious Art.’ The project unites a culturally eclectic group of artists, writers, musicians and performers, each with their unique perspective on this experience of existence, yet all remain united through artistic collaboration and community dialogue. The quest and expression of Universal Love is a central unifying theme, which offers an opportunity for artists with resonant dreams to find each other, to be inspired by each other and to unfold the potentiality of a global movement.

The Dallas Dreams & Divinities Equinox Show is the finale of a three year odyssey starting in Toledo Spain on the spring Equinox of 2013. The show travelled through Spain and the European début ended on the Fall Equinox in Paris, France. The following year, on the Spring Equinox, the city of San Cristobal de las Casas hosted the suite in one of their museums and it later travelled to Monterrey for the Mexico finale at Amon-Ra Gallery. For the North American finale at Luminarte, some of the favorite pieces from Toledo and Mexico have been mixed with new work to give a sense of both continuity and freshness.

Draftsman of the Apocalypse opens Nov. 1 at CentralTrak

Draftsman of the Apocalypse curated by Heyd Fontenot

November 1 – December 13, CentralTrak, Free

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 1, 8 – 10 pm 

Heyd Fontenot, Director of CentralTrak, is a practicing artist, an arts administrator, curator, and was most recently honored with a Mastermind Award from the Dallas Observer. 

Hosted by CentralTrak, this exhibition depicts both observational and visionary illustration in order to conjure images of mankind’s eventual doom. Everyday life is frightening enough and current news supplies documentarians with more than enough ammunition. For the fantasist artist, religion, folklore and cinema are ready to inspire and steer the topic toward the macabre. Perhaps these visions are offered to the public in the form of cautionary premonition and sermon: “Beware! Change your wicked ways or be forever damned in this misery”. Read More
