The Chester Sidell Gallery is delighted to have this year five Caribbean artists bringing their recent work inspired by the colors, tones and forms from the Caribbean with hyperrealism influences; the details on their compositions and the colorful work transport our minds to these artists worlds.
Melanio Guzmán - Moca, Republica Dominicana.
Karina Rodriguez - La Romana, República Dominicana.
Eddy Ochoa Guzmán - Cuba
Erick De Leon Medina- San Cristóbal, República Dominicana
Francisco Collado - San Cristóbal, República Dominicana
Thirteen-foot blue pigmented images of people in stages of leaving, growing away, and dying, paper the walls of the Beland Gallery in Dominique Zeltzman’s immersive sound and paper installation. Relentless domestic internal monologue permeates the space—narrated interviews on leaving, her daughter practicing mandolin, voice mail messages from her mother with dementia. Framed 36”x7” images of paintings on photocopies of the original portrait snap shots, scanned, and printed again, mimic the transition and departure of the subjects who leave behind physical traces and memory.
