Arcilesi | Homberg Fine Art is pleased to present Margaret Roleke’s solo show UNCONTROLLED, opening January 9th, 6-8pm at 139 Eldridge Street, New York, NY, 10002. This show explores sensationalism, consumerism and the contradictions and relationships that develop when popular culture mixes with war and religion. The show consists of a hanging sculpture, wall reliefs, lenticular collage pieces on wood and sticker collage abstractions.
Numerous small toys are utilized in the conversation, which allows these serious issues of consumption, consumerism, war, violence and religious extremism to be presented in a playful manner. Actual bullet casings and brass transform into jewel like abstractions as in Abstraction/Princesses. Multitudes of toys are painted in a monochromatic palette, which allow them to be read as minimalist painting. The lenticulars are a new series in which “found object imagery” is rearranged in dramatic relationships.
This is Margaret Roleke’s first solo show at AHA Fine Art. Five percent of all sales will go to The Coalition to End Gun Violence. Roleke has been working in this manner for many years. Her work has been widely exhibited in the North East including a recent solo show entitled Happy War at Real Art Ways in Hartford, CT.
Please join us for Bedel Tiscareño’s first solo exhibition with AHA fine Art. Extant Fables, opening Saturday, September 12th, 2015 from 6-9pm at AHA Fine Art, 139 Eldridge St., NYC. Extant Fables is a compilation of sculpture groupings, solitary sculptures and paintings. “The figures in this exhibition, incorporating elements of disparate sources ranging from African minkisi figures (Central African power figures) to Spanish polychrome religious sculpture, are the imagined actors of nonexistent stories. While the absence of a clear narrative for such colorful characters as Henry (shown left) appears counterintuitive, the void created by this lack of structure allows for the viewer’s intuitive compass to create compositions made from all of the associations and assumptions that have slowly and silently accreted to the mind.”
