Atmospheric Perspectives

"Interplay" by Barbara Lubliner 

Contemporary Approaches to a Traditional Technique

A Group Exhibition of artist members from the NY Artists Circle
Curated by Christina Massey

Atmospheric or aerial perspective refers to the traditional painting technique of creating an illusion of depth or distance by making objects appear less detailed and typically bluer than nearer objects, traditionally utilized in creating realistic landscapes. It is described as the air and all the particles in it, from dust to pollution that lingers between the eye of the viewer to the distant object that is the subject.

Contemporary perspective of what exists in that air is vastly different however than in past eras. These artists touch on the subjects of smog and pollution, that our air is full of invisible wifi signals, consider thoughts and ideas as objects floating in the air, and inspect the connection to our larger celestial atmosphere which is full of satellites that can cut through all of that distance taking incredibly detailed photographs.

This exhibition takes a new approach to visualizing what exactly is the air we breathe and live in today. How that air shifts and moves through storms, thought forms and energetic waves and how everything from science to social philosophies creates that atmospheric haze that alters how we view our contemporary landscape. The overall exhibition will still highlight that gray and bluish tone of the traditional atmospheric perspective but with pops of an orange-copper glow symbolic of more modern sunsets. These color choices hinting at that technical artistic training and understanding each artist holds despite their choice to forego the traditional landscape in their imagery.

Artists Include:
Beth Barry, Fran Beallor, Yvette Cohen, Jane Dell, Karen Fitzgerald, Pauline Galiana, Elanor Goldstein, Peggy Klineman, Barbara Lubliner, Elizabeth Mead, Gammy Miller, Janie Milstein, Linda Lee Nicholas, Anne Raymond, Phyliss Rosser, Andra Samelson, Linda Schmidt, Linda Stillman, Audrey Stone, Robin Tedesco
