WLODZIMIERZ KSIAZEK and Brian Corey

March 3 - 30


Wlodzimierz Ksiazek, Untitled (detail)

In 1982 Wlodzimierz Ksiazek immigrated to New York City because of the imposition of martial law in Poland. His work implicitly addresses the processes of time and exile, recovery, and ruin.

Ksiazek has exhibited at Marisa del Re Gallery and John Gibson Gallery in New York, as well as throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. He is currently represented by Kouros Gallery in New York and Alpha Gallery in Boston.

Ksiazek's work has been reviewed in such publications as Art in America, Art Forum, Art News, Tema Celeste, Partisan Review, d'Art International, and The Hudson Review.

He has taught at numerous schools, universities, and colleges, including Loughborough University (UK), Dartmouth College, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston).

Ksiazek's work resides in numerous public and private collections in the United States and abroad. He lives and works in Rhode Island.

This exhibition is curated by RIC art professor Lisa Russell.

HALL SPACE GALLERY

Brian Corey: Paintings

Corey is a kind of naturalist whose themes examine or mimic the natural world. His imagery creates a moment of merged forms that evoke a beauty dependent on a conceptualized view of biological ecosystems turned into drawings of ambiguous yet seductive forms.

Reception: March 3, 5:008:00 p.m.
