Janet Filomeno’s “As the Sea Rises” at Walter Wickiser Gallery, New York

Walter Wickiser Gallery is hosting a solo exhibition by Janet Filomeno in “As the Sea Rises.”Filomeno most recent series “Blue Crystals Revisited” grew out of reference to her previous series “Blue Crystal Series”. Like her previous series, this one also is also nature embodied through pools of translucent sapphire blues that reflect an oceanic experience of troubled waters.According to the gallery, Filomeno is best known for large-scale gestural abstract paintings that employ the use of a variety of materials such as ink, mica, shellac, acrylic paint, graphite, charcoal and at times collage.By the use of her physical action such as pouring, flinging, throwing colourful liquids onto a stretched canvas on the floor she is able to re-enact the movement one might sense in oceans, rivers, and other bodies of water.“It is an intuitive process she follows as she uses the physicality of her body to move/shift the canvas in various directions to create a heightened sense of movement and dramatic composition as each layer is poured,” states the gallery statement.About the series, the artist says, “I revisited this past series because these turbulent times feel somewhat similar. Climate change, political change, all of many ongoings occurring in our society today seem to recall that experience.”The exhibition is on view though December 27, 2018 at Walter Wickiser Gallery, Main Gallery, 210 Eleventh Avenue, Suite 303, New York, USA.For details, visit: http://bit.ly/2prc1jP on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition. http://bit.ly/2BwSDJ7 Louise Blouin
