Gordon BoardmanJuly 19 - August 25, 2007
Denise Bibro Fine Art, 529 West 20th Street, Chelsea, NYC, is pleased to announce our fifth solo exhibition of Gordon Boardman, Yet Still Standing- Not Yet Standing Still.
Influenced by abstract expressionism, his work is comprised of canvases filled with explosions of color juxtaposed with dramatically sharp black incisions of lines. Boardman’s work pays tribute to the color palette of Chagall and the constructivist tendencies of Joseph Stella. Boardman’s strong demarcation of sensual human physicality lost amidst a wild jungle formation entices the viewer to examine the works more deeply, beyond the montage of the beautiful color planes. Much like a kaleidoscope, the range of colors in each piece
– from the sedated pastels flowing within “Look No Further” to vibrant primaries jumping off the canvas of “Can You Find Me?”– have an ordered chaos transmitting a deliberate spark of emotion as well as a visual sense of depth and space that is vital in understanding and appreciating the works. His organic forms and gestural brushstrokes are the perfect means of channeling bold energy that resonates through to the viewer.
Gordon Boardman has exhibited extensively throughout the US including solo shows at Chuck Levitan Gallery, NYC; Frank Bustamante, NYC; ARC Gallery, Chicago, IL; Foundry Gallery, Washington, D.C.; and the Creative Arts Gallery, Central Michigan University. Among his most recent group exhibitions are the West Michigan Area Show, Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, where he was the National City Grand Prize Winner; juror: Gregory Gillespie. He also was in the Priva B. Gross International Works on Paper Exhibition at Queensborough Community College and he exhibited in the Permanent Collection Exhibit at the Grand Rapids Museum. Boardman was educated at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and has his MFA from Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI.
There will be a reception for the artist on Thursday, July 19th from 6-8pm.
