Exploring the Unconventional

Our new show, Exploring the Unconventional,  opened yesterday in Greenwich. This exhibition features non-traditional artworks that reflect the changing landscape of contemporary art. These pieces use technology and re-imagined conventional media to create unique works that challenge what is or what could be considered “art.”
Donald Martiny, Daniel Bruce, Bradley Hart
Hyun-Joon Yoon, Debranne Cingari




Featured artists include:
Daniel Bruce



Daniel Bruce - Bruce's work questions the nature of human materialism and our relationship with nature and technology. Campfire, Deer Head, and Make a Wish, utilize familiar forms of the outdoors and illuminates them with neon lighting.












Logan Hicks - Hicks is a New York artist that uses hand-sprayed stencils to depict the urban environment of the city, with its juxtaposing state of liveliness and decay. Take a look at this video of Hick's interview with Scion Art via Vimeo.

Hyun-Joon Yoon - Born in Seoul, Korea and living and working in New Jersey, Yoon is a video-sculpture installation artist. His work explores the struggle and tension between one's entity and how it fits in the external world, trying to adhere to time to and spacial order. Here's the full length video installation:




Mr. Revrac




Mr. Revrac - These multi-media assembled works are inspired by the Cyberpunk genre of Sci-Fi, exploring how our culture both loves and fears technology, how we are always wired and switched on and what impact that makes on our individual selves and where we are headed as a society.




Debranne Cingari








Debranne Cingari - Cingari incorporates objects into her photography, creating mixed-media assemblages, often     resembling cityscapes or nature.








Bradley Hart - Hart's large paintings are made with a highly technical and labor-intensive medium - bubble wrap. Hart injects the back of bubble wrap with syringes filled with acrylic. The results is two pieces - one the "injection" and the other the "impression" - the paint that drips out. Find out more about this technique from this video from The Telegraph 

Martiny




Donald Martiny - Martiny's pieces are made with polymers and dispersed pigment, creating highly textural and free-formed objects that break away from the rigidity of a canvas and create a dialogue with the space around them.













Scott Duce - Known for his color-block portraits of city life, Duce is experimenting now with charcoal drawings which he transforms into hand-drawn animation videos with nature subjects.
 



Jim Rennert - Rennert is an established sculptor of bronze pieces, but here, he has taken his familiar form of the businessman and used drawing and photography to create animation that brings his sculpture to life.






















The show runs until May 2nd.
