Diptych/Triptych

 

Opening Reception Friday, November 6, 5-8pm

 

The idea of the Diptych/Triptych exhibition is to show prints consisting of two or three parts that closely relate to each other. This concept was popular in  the Renaissance  when artists worked for churches or secular patrons. To relate two or three themes with each other to explore the inner story of an artwork is still a challenge today.

In art, a diptych is a painting, especially an altarpiece, on two hinged wooden panels that may be closed like a book. A triptych is picture or relief carving on three panels, typically hinged together side by side and used as an altarpiece, or any  set of three associated artistic, literary, or musical works intended to be appreciated together.

See the review written by Wylie Schwartz about this exhibit: www.ithacatimes.com/main.asp

Before moving to his new home in California, Zevi Blum lived and taught in Ithaca for nearly fifty years. He was born in Paris in 1933 and received a Bachelor of Architecture at Cornell University in 1957. Since earning his degree Blum has taught at both Ithaca College and Cornell. Blum has also exhibited throughout the United States, Germany, and Switzerland. His Retrospective will be on display at the Ink Shop from September 4 through October 27, with an opening reception held on Friday, September 4. A month later Blum will be joining the Ink Shop in person for Gallery Night on Friday, October 2. On the following Monday, October 2, Blum will discuss his work at the Ink Shop. Blum’s line etchings deal with the strange and the unusual. Each piece is made up of incredible detail; every mark on the plate is given the same painstaking attention. Human ingenuity gone amiss is a prevalent theme in his work. James Hall, from Rochester’s Oxford Gallery, said of Blum’s etchings,”[His] compositions present us a delightful panoply of characters. They belong to no age and to every age. They are both fanciful anachronisms and universals in the comédie humaine.

Lisa Mackie: Continuous Incident | Installation

Essay excerpt by Karen Wilkin

This material and formal complexity is echoed by the complexity of Mackie's images. With time we realize that the near abstract shapes are really specific: we focus on a hand or a foot, make sense of a gesture, or gliimpse an illuminating detail, and then the freewheeling, layered "abstraction before us becomes intelligible as an accretion of different silhouettes of the big-skirted women, variations on a theme, the figures superimposed, nested, within themselves, or swirled like fans. Over time too, we recognize congnates and repetitions of specific images made mysterious by changes in sequence or orientation.
