bau 95 A Conversation Thomas Huber and Vincent Pomilio

Thomas Huber and Vincent Pomilio met in 1999 when their work was hung next to each other in a group show in the New York gallery Pacifico Fine Arts. They were both attracted to each others work and immediately felt a connection. Since then they have shown together in group shows in the city and around the Hudson Valley, most recently at the Edward Hopper House in Nyack. This exhibition titled “Current: Abstract Art In The Hudson Valley” was curated by artist Stanford Kay. There is a visual dialogue between the two artists who find a strong correlation in their work and have had this ongoing involvement over the years, both showing together and discussing their work with one another. This will be the first time they have exclusively exhibited in a two-person show.

While their work differs, they have both found ways to make paintings in there own way by combining different types of marks into a unified painting.

Pomilio

Pomilio uses layers of paint and Venetian plaster that are gauged into and sanded partially away. Over this there is pencil and scratching, little marks that add up to the painting as a whole.

Vincent Pomilio “OSSO”

Ajust Focus

Huber does a similar thing by collaging found notes and doodles into his paintings which also have photographic transfers, venetian plaster and poured paint which together again add up to a whole.

Thomas Huber “Ajust Focus”

 ”Vincent Pomilio and Thomas Huber- A Conversation” explores the relationship between their works as a visual conversation suggested by their mark marking, line, form, color and materials, allowing the paintings to set each other off.

In Gallery 2 Gary Jacketti- New Abstract Paintings 

Jacketti will present new paintings created with enamel paint on panel. Jacketti investigated this medium of “pulled Painting” in 2010 at his solo exhibition Japan Today at the gallery. He has since expanded the scope of the work to include American resources to explore his abstract aesthetic.
