Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature New York artist, Marina Reiter, in Portals of Perception. The exhibition is scheduled to run from November 23, 2010 through December 14, 2010 (opening reception: Thursday, December 02, 2010).
In an exuberant world of atmospheric color, Marina Reiter conjures intriguing biomorphic forms into existence. Often connected by intersecting lines and hashes, these creatures float in perpetual congress. Their smooth shapes give the impression of three-dimensional depth, heightened by the soft flatness of her shimmering pastel backgrounds. Careful balance of color and form ensures a harmony throughout the composition. For Reiter, the connections are important – this is the way that humans and emotions interact – as she says, “We enter this world to reach out and connect. We are not bound by space and time”. Her paintings are a celebration of everything that unties us and pulls us apart. Heavily influenced by the work of Wassily Kandinsky, her pieces channel the spirit of Surreal abstraction and Constructivism. However, Reiter’s works are infinitely accessible, allowing her to affect her public directly through the work.
Marina Reiter works passionately and constantly strives for perfection in her work. Born in Moscow, Russia, she currently livesrn and works in Brooklyn, NY.
