CONSTANTINE GEDAL

  • February 1 - March 25, 2018
  • Opening Reception: Second Friday, February 9, 2017

The Noyes Museum is proud to present a collection of photographs attributed to the ever mysterious artist, Constantine Gedal.

There are two elements that I employ in my imagery—human being and one’s surroundings.

In order to construct image, I follow the travels of a lone soul in the lands of the other, registering views and moments flowing by, observing pictures seen through the mind of an intricate and elaborate structure that can’t always relate to the world around.

The travels in the world which is sometimes small and narrow as a single bunker, secure and desperate; sometimes wide as an ocean, forgiving and merciless, with layers over layers vanishing down, with deep sky tipped off into the abyss above, where time doesn’t fight space, and choosing direction is futile; no preparations and no second chances—everything happens here and now.

I portray moments of an object’s journey to become a subject across the background of vastness which is turning subject into an object and is getting dissolved into thin air as a sea line disappearing in the midday sunshine.
—Constantine Gedal

JOE LUGARA

Joe Lugara took up oil painting at the age of 11 after his father discarded it as a hobby. A film enthusiast and former film student, he made his first paintings by copying the covers of a favorite childhood fan magazine devoted to horror movies. An interest in monster faces (“human faces stretched to emotional extremes”) combined with two decades of fiction writing resulted in a long period of painting imaginary portraits, or “fictional biographies,” which eventually gave way to abstracted, frequently ominous images containing bastardized natural forms and inexplicable phenomena. It was in the early 2010s that Mr. Lugara began creating abstracted digital images.

His paintings and works on paper have appeared in more than 40 exhibitions, including the New Jersey State Museum; Johnson & Johnson World Headquarters Gallery (as part of that company’s “New Jersey Artists” series); Visual Arts Center of New Jersey; Curious Matter (Jersey City); Banana Factory Arts Center (Bethlehem, Pa.); and across New York City.

My digital work, like my paintings, conveys the opinion that happenstance, in the infinity of space or on the scale of a single cell, is the boss, the Big Boss. The natural wonders at which we marvel are rife with unseen perils. We can’t always read nature’s true disposition, and certainly not by taking a simple look. The shapes in my work should cause the viewer to ask: “If those things were real, would I risk touching them?” - Joe Lugara
