New York, NY — CUSP NYC is pleased to announce the opening of Evocations, a solo show featuring the recent work of Bronx-based artist, SinXero. This is the first Artsy-exclusive, online-only exhibition by CUSP NYC.
1. the act of bringing or recalling a feeling, memory, or image to the conscious mind. 2. the action of invoking a spirit or deity.
Employing an abstract sensibility, SinXero creates paintings reliant on physical and visual textures, inextricably linked to bursts of intense color. Backed by a coordinated process that balances planned layers and spontaneous actions, SinXero transfers the energy of his environment and artistic vision onto paper, panels, canvas and large-scale murals.
Evocations presents a selection of SinXero’s most recent work. Here he experiments with the ability to elicit an emotional, sensory response through presentation of a seemingly ever-changing surface that is built by the combination and layering of various traditional and non-traditional mediums. Suggestions of flux come from the inclusion of time, seasonality, chemical reactions, handmade textural materials, and purposefully de-constructed or destroyed paintings in the process of creating each piece.
SinXero’s manipulation of materials and traditional techniques to create movement, depth and space on a surface is achieved with a variety of methods including the erratic explosion of compressed paint from punctured aerosol spray cans, use of chemical dissolvents, oil and acrylic paints, pastels, inks, polymer dispersion, resin, plaster, varnishes, tempera and marble powder. Equally important, the artist often applies these materials with unconventional tools including trowels, squeegees, syringes and brooms, in addition to handmade brushes and applicators.
A process involving conscious and subconscious actions, introspection, concepts of philosophy and social development, and the use of automatic compositions, makes SinXero a dynamic multi-disciplinary artist. His emotional intensity culminates in a rebellious, electrifying energy that breathes life into his paintings and makes them a mirror of the human psyche. SinXero's vision and experimentation with layering using a wide range of materials and application methods supports his ability to draw attention to persistent personal and social issues that exist in our everyday lives.
