The exhibit opens September 5th and runs through October 27th at 24 W. 57th St., Suite 606, NYC.
"Our quest started from a feeling that we wanted to be surrounded by objects that guide us and inject enjoyment into our lives." –Thalen & Thalen
With a strong dedication to the purity of material and expression throughout their works of fine silver, Belgium-based father/son duo Thalen & Thalen craft lasting pure silver creations. Through the use of awe-inspiring shapes of varied size and proportion, these works evoke a sense of freedom, while simultaneously pushing the boundaries of possibility through a communication with their material. The works of Thalen & Thalen have been exhibited worldwide, and can be found in public and private collections across the globe.
Artist Amy Kirchner’s dedicated focus to form is exemplified through her abstracted acrylic works. The artist's signature use of both contrasting and complimentary pallets seamlessly evokes a Zen sense of balance, resulting in compositions that are at once compelling and peaceful. Kirchner’s successful background in graphic design is evident throughout her acute sense of form, which she has perfected over three decades. Her paintings can be found in several important regional, national, and international collections.
Long-Sharp Gallery is delighted to host Vessels + Void, a vibrant and colorful exhibition, which harmoniously provides a physical environment for celebrating the purely visceral works of artists Amy Kirchner and Thalen & Thalen.
