Malta artist to exhibit in New York
Chelsea’s Agora Gallery in New York will feature the original work of Malta artist Alexander Telin in Idiosyncratic Expressions. The exhibition will open on 14th October and run through 3rd November, with an opening reception on Thursday, 20th October. Any art lover who enjoys thought-provoking artworks and meeting talented and interesting artists is encouraged to attend.
Each of Alexander Telin’s works emerges over a prolonged period of time, developed from experience and contemplation. Bright saturated colours swirl in impressionistic strokes in each of Telin’s pieces, forming surreal or whimsical images from short, careful brushstrokes. Human features appear stylised or distorted by translucent materials.
Crisp, bright areas of colour are elaborated upon by small, varied pigments, which add a further layer of interest in each shadow and highlight. Each piece reveals the unexpected aspect of familiar images, in a tantalising exploration of the human and fantastical world.
Telin believes colour has a special role in driving the direction of each piece, creating paintings that expound upon the transformative and expressive qualities of saturated hues. Small dashes of colour circle in each painting, articulating forms while delineated patches of reflected light and deep, tangible shadow.
A native of Moscow, Telin focuses on “deep pictoral art”, a term he uses to create a sense that each image forms some suggestion of a narrative, with each work part of a larger series.
