Foto Relevance presents "Quarantine Blues" opening day
Foto Relevance will present "Quarantine Blues," a group show originally developed as an online exclusive show for buying art on a budget and now expanded to fill the physical space of the gallery.
The psychology of the color blue has been studied in depth, and it has been shown that blues evoke feelings of calmness and serenity and can even increase productivity. Blue is an omnipresent factor in our lives, filling the sky and the water with its seemingly infinite depth. We have brought the contemplative color indoors with selections from gallery artists Brenda Biondo, Deborah Bay, Lou Peralta, Karen Navarro, Claire Rosen, Robert Langham III, Mark Chen, Torrie Groening, Lou Vest, Margeaux Walter, Paul-André Larocque, Joana Cardozo, and Julia McLaurin.
The varied blue hues of the sky are interpreted through the skyscapes of Biondo and Chen, while the complex associations of the color throughout art history and culture are explored by Langham, Rosen, and Groening. Peralta utilizes the ability of color to evoke emotion, and the optics of color and depth are pushed beyond the flat image in the manipulated works of Larocque, Navarro, and Cardozo.
Foto Relevance is open by appointment only. The exhibition will remain up for viewing through August 8.
