Volunteer opportunity for artists: Restoration Health Fair – 8/23/14

August 18, 2014

I hope this email finds you in good health and great spirits. My name is Angelea Sprinkle and I am the Community Outreach Liaison for Restoration Church of Jesus Apostolic.
On Saturday, August 23, 2014, Restoration Church of Jesus Apostolic will proudly host our 2nd Annual Community Health Fair & Family Day. Our church is located at 44 Berriman Street, Brooklyn, NY 11208 (between Liberty & Atlantic Avenues) However the event will be held at the East New York MEDISYS Health Network facility located at 3080 Atlantic Avenue (corner of Berriman Street). We are fortunate to be partnering with MEDISYS and we will utilize their very spacious parking lot to host the health fair.

We are in need of face painters for the children attending the festivities. Children are always very excited and happy to step into the magical world of the character that has been adorned on their precious little faces and we would love to partner with you to make that a reality for them. We are not in a position where we can monetarily reward any volunteers, however we will supply necessary art equipment (face painting kits) and letters of recognition/appreciation for any students/alumni who are willing to volunteer their time.

The event will be from 10am – 5pm. Our goal is to improve the quality of life through a balance of Christian outreach, education and positive community activities for members of the East New York and other under serviced communities.

We intend to provide a day filled with fun, health awareness & screenings, healthy snacks, lunch, music, games, and participation prizes. In addition, we will also have valuable resources for community residents such as tax services, housing assistance, immigration services, SNAP & health care information and much more. We are hosting a blood drive and we will also give out school supplies for preschool to college students. While our overall goal is to raise health awareness, cater to the elderly/youth and offer much needed resources to all we will also have a prayer corner and offer the patrons the opportunity to connect or reconnect with thier spritual needs.

Having your students and/or alumni at our event will be a wonderful addition to the scheduled health screenings and resources for the patrons of the East New York community. Please contact me at your earliest convenience for further discussion on making this event a huge success. I can be reached via email or at (347) 570 – 9987 anytime. Please feel free to forward this information to your blog, website, facebook or eblast notification system.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and your participation in our venture.

Peace and blessings,

Robert Berry, MA alum curates: Ned Martin “Pretty Pain” – Wednesday, September 3rd

August 12, 2014

Ned Martin Pretty Pain

September 3rd — October 4th, 2014

Opening reception: Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014, 6 — 10 pm

635 West 42nd Street

pretty_pain-press_release.jpgRobert Berry is pleased to present Ned Martin “Pretty Pain” from September 3rd through October 4th, 2014 at The Atelier located at 635 West 42nd Street. In the artists first solo exhibition in New York since 2013 he debuts his new artistic style. After a highly acclaimed solo exhibition at Penn College earlier this year, featuring his realism and abstract works, we present a new series of paintings in his newly developed style “abstract photorealism.” For Martin, this new genre represents a metamorphosis of opposing techniques in artistry to create a new mode of visualization.

For the past two decades, Martin has become known for his photorealism paintings, stemming out of his classical training including the grinding and mixing of paints, emphasis on skilled drawing, and many years painting en plein aire in the fields of Scotland and along la Seine in Paris. By utilizing scrubbing, scratching, and scrapping layers of textured paint until a realistic form reveals itself, Martin created a visually complex work that with closer scrutiny, the viewer is delighted to discover broken impressionistic layers of paint that imply realism. These paintings are a reflection of the dichotomy: very calming when viewed from afar, and abstract/maniacal when examined closely.

His abstract work emerged from his photorealism work, and attempted to break down nature into purely abstract forms, yet still retain his trademark technical and visual complexities. In “Pretty Pain” the implied realism from the previous work is still present, but it takes on a new language of forum and color, creating a continuous exploration of his perception of the world around him. Martin coins the term abstract photorealism to represent the marriage of abstract and realism in his newly developed painted style. The artist had stated back in 2008, “ultimately, I am searching for the abstract within realism. When light plays across a surface it calls to me—makes me stop in my tracks.” Martin was an abstract painter before he knew it; when he was still painting photorealistic work. He later mentioned, “unlike realism, abstraction has very few boundaries. Within a world of painting nothing, you are simultaneously painting everything.”

For Martin “Pretty Pain” encapsulates healing in the aftermath of personal tragedy and represents a rebirth of sorts. It launched him in a new artistic direction that expanded his artistic vocabulary using a variety of techniques. By utilizing recycled aluminum printing plates, the artist has built on an existing dialogue. By interweaving his story into the materials and surfaces and removing the authorship of the advertising that was on the plates, the previous language becomes simply a visual gesture in order to layer upon. The digitally inspired fractal works become another code when combined with the perceived landscape that comes to mind when you’ve seen Martin’s previous paintings. The fractals are a direct result from the method of his hyperrealism, but with some form of distortion, or a filter. The artist’s hand can be immediately recognized, even though this is nothing like he has painted before.

In this exhibition, the artist departs from his roots of hyperrealism — his technique is said to be comparable to Richard Estes, Otto Duecker, or even Will Cotton — and embarks on a new path, similar to Gerhard Richter as Martin’s early paintings were based on photography — both his own and found imagery — and transitioned into photography based abstract works. In Miranda Fractals, Martin has bridged his hyperrealism with the abstract, to create abstract-realism. Though it can be reminiscent of Chuck Close and his use of the ben-day dots, Martin uses printing techniques to start, and the abstract imagery emerges. Martin paints “fractal dots” in the abstract parts, but only “realism” in the figurative part, continuing the dichotomy that has existed all along.

Born in Pennsylvania, Martin attended Towson State University in Maryland, and then went on to study at the Schuler School of Fine Art in Baltimore. Recent exhibitions include a survey exhibition at Penn College, a solo exhibition show at the Station Gallery, and a featured artist show at Windsor Whip Works Gallery.

The artist lives and works in New York.
