Darkness & Light Exhibit @ Falcon Power West
The Falcon Power pop-up art project is a collaboration between New York metropolitan area developers and local artists.
Falcon Power now moves to a magnificent space at 1414 Grand Street in Hoboken on December 5, 2015 for an exciting exhibition featuring the work of Tim Daly and Roy Kinzer. The exhibition, Urban Landscapes: Darkness & Light, presents a study into the nature of the urban environment, its dark underbelly, decaying infrastructure and hidden beauty.
Press release for Urban Landscapes: Darkness and Light
The collision between mass industrialization and the natural world has been the basis of much of Tim Daly’s paintings and drawings for the past three decades.
Tim Daly was born and raised in Jersey City, New Jersey; his home and studio are in Hoboken. He was known early on for his paintings of the mostly unseen landscape surrounding Jersey City and the Meadowlands, and the urban industrial landscape of the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. His subject matter has expanded to include the rest of the world. Here’s the artist’s description of a favorite memory that epitomizes the Meadowlands, the subject of many of his paintings:
Walking down a narrow trail between the phragmites reeds, turning a corner and coming face to face with a great blue heron that was as surprised as I was. Five feet tall with an 18″ beak, he spread enormous wings and with two slow, noisy wing beats rose straight above me.
Tim Daly has exhibited extensively. For more information about Tim Daly, visit his Web site: www.timdaly.artspan.com.
Roy Kinzer has been making and teaching art for over 20 years. He has an extensive exhibition record and frequently completes commissions for art consultants, corporations and private collectors. He is a past recipient of the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Artist Grant. He holds a Certificate of Art from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
His current paintings are titled Urban Planning and Aerial Landscapes. Here is the artist’s description of the work:
My paintings are fractal landscapes and cityscapes derived from digitally altered topographical maps and satellite images. I work in the tradition of the Hudson River School Luminist painters, who used perspective, magnified scale and dramatic lighting to explore the Sublime, the feeling of rapture or awe caused by the beauty and terror of nature. I use Luminist techniques of color and solarization and apply the aesthetics of fractal patterns to simulate a view of earth as taken from a satellite.
