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, artist 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 are created by the inclusion of time, seasonality, chemical reaction, handmade textural materials, and purposefully de-constructed or destroyed paintings throughout the process of creating each piece.
SinXero’s use of materials and techniques to manipulate movement, space, and depth is achieved through a range of mediums including the erratic explosion of compressed paint from punctured aerosol spray cans, 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 traditional and handmade brushes and applicators.
Conscious and subconscious actions, infused with introspection, concepts of philosophy and social development, and automatic compositions, make SinXero a dynamic multi-disciplinary artist. His emotional intensity culminates in a rebellious, electrifying energy that breathes life into his paintings and make them a mirror of the human psyche. SinXero's vision and experimentation with a wide range of styles and materials support his ability to draw attention to persistent personal and social issues that exist in our communities.
