Vertical Repose

371 Warren Street, 4th FL, Jersey City, NJ 07302

curated by Emily Santangelo
Opening Reception: September 28th, 6-10pm

September 28 - October 28, 2012

Opening Reception: September 28th, 6-10pm

Panepinto Galleries is pleased to present Vertical Repose, a group exhibition curated by Emily Santangelo.

Vertical painting is a process of high drama, finishing in a crescendo, simultaneously exhausting and exhilarating us in its formal orientation. Its theater of aspiration, the sense of reaching vs. acceptance and surrender, the act of jumping and diving or traveling up and down in our eye movement, the unknown above us as well as the somewhat better known at or below our feet, all play a critical role in the process, the creation and the experience of the vertical work. Unlike horizontal imagery, which inescapably speaks of landscape and the reclining figure—in which the observer holds a passive role—the vertical image demands active participation. It pushes back at the viewer, “mirroring” the body, creating an internal space for that audience to engage in a reciprocal dialogue, one that mirrors the surface while allowing the projection of one's individual history onto the image. 

The work exhibited in Vertical Repose aims to elicit such articulations of verticality. Pulling from a variety of mediums and artistic approaches, the exhibition does not seek to fuse together an underlying conceptual premise geared towards a contextual narrative but rather, to use the orientation of the frame as a staging area for a particular and predetermined type of aesthetic contemplation. It is through this vertical dimension that we experience the work of art and in turn, ourselves.

Featured artists include John Baldessari, Andrea Belag, Kate Carey, John D'Agostino, Rachel Friedberg, Stephen Gross, Charlie Hewitt, Alison Hildreth, Elizabeth T. Jones, Chris Pelletiere, Kara L. Rooney, Anthony Roselli and Richard Serra.

Gallery hours are September 28th from 6-10pm and by appointment.

DIRECTIONS from Grove Street PATH Station: Walk East on Christopher Columbus Blvd, turn left (North) on Warren Street, turn left (West) on First Street, entrance on corner.
