Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery is pleased to present “All The Artificial Barriers”, a solo exhibition of new and recent works by New York-based, Dominican artist Gerard Ellis. It includes large, mixed media works on canvas, as well as medium and small size works on wood panels. Ellis' last solo show was in 2013 at the Thomas Jaeckel Gallery. The show is part of the gallery's New York City branch program.
We live in a world saturated with information and in an ever more technologically and social media influenced life, where the basics of a simple face-to-face interaction seems, at moments, to be fading away. In “All The Artificial Barriers”, the artist explores the everyday life relations, the dualistic nature of things and how we tend to drive ourselves more and more away from the real world and dive into a virtual reality.
