Celebrating International Women’s Day at IBA Gallery

Against the white walls of the IBA Gallery, bright shades of pink, turquoise and green surround Silvia Lopez Chavez’s canvassed face as she puffs out her cheeks in harsh concentration. The kaleidoscope of tiny air ‘bubbles’ escaping her pursed lips capture the moment just before she gives in. On the wall to the right, a video loops, replaying Chelsea residents engaged in similar activity. Joining them as well as the life-sized portraits of nine of these Chelsea residents, Chavez’s self-portrait, “Hold Your Breath’, serves as a point of conversation surrounding the dysfunctional structures that have created inadequate healthcare resources for Chelsea residents as well as an increase in environmental pollution, diminished air quality and a marked onset of diseases within the population.

Philip Gerstein: ¡Experiment! at Galatea Fine Art

As the sound of African music flows throughout his studio, Philip Gerstein’s art pieces begin to sing their own songs in a burst of color and textures as their stories unfold. Each stands out in its own distinct way with different mediums and color palates, creating a theme of experimentation and discovery. Gerstein uses mediums of oil-stick, glitter, powder pigment and textured gel to give his artwork a 3D perception that insists on a prolonged and closer look.
