Artistic Disciplines Collide At North Fork-Based Gallery’s "Hybrid" Exhibit

Sydney A. Braat

Pattern of Moving 1 by Han Qin.

Pale Male: In the Crosshairs by Roz Dimon.

Artistic disciplines and digital tech will collide at Alex Ferrone Gallery in a fascinating exhibit that will be open from Saturday, October 14 through Sunday, November 12. The exhibit, Hybrid, will feature works by regional artists Roz Dimon, Colin Goldberg, and Han Qin, who all come from diverse artistic backgrounds including painting, drawing, photography, and printmaking.

Dimon has worked in the forefront of digital art practices since 1984 and has created a multi-layered, interactive painting that she calls a "DIMONscape®" - a single digitally collaged image composed of numerous photographs and digital drawings that is presented in a light box. One piece that will be on display is Pale Male: A Pilgrimage — a symbolic, spiritual, and iconographic work created in response to the September 11 attacks. "In one sense, this story is about a hawk who, witnessing his natural habitat 'lost,' adapts to new surroundings, and makes his home in the crosshairs of an urban frontier, New York City," stated Dimon. Along with Pale Male are four of its "states", or stages, that reveal to the viewer their own symbolism and meaning separate from the whole. Dimon's Pale Male: A Pilgrimage is in the permanent collection of the National September 11 Memorial Museum. 

Greenport Dock #1 by Colin Goldberg.

Goldberg's Photoconstructs series explores the intersection of traditional and digital art processes. His previous works have been more formalist and non-representational, though today Goldberg utilizes original photographs relevant to his personal life experiences combined with the art of drawing, painting, and digital printing to produce his singular hand-painted works. Goldberg is inspired by the Pop Art era and Abstract Expressionist artists. He modernizes processes by employing specialized primers that allow him to digitally print directly or painted surfaces.

Qin's work adapts a traditional approach to the digital era, but is formally grounded in drawing, painting, and printmaking by using digital tools to create storytelling works. Her exhibit series is entitled Where is Home, which depicts the pattern of human movement, especially immigrating, moving, living, or even studying in another place. Her series questions the the relationship between memory and experience related to her own transition and relocation, as well as her curiosity about migrants' lives. Qin's works are created from a hybrid of cyanotype, digital editing, plotter printing, and acrylic painting, where each process reveals different emotions that all imply a metaphor of Qin's understanding of "home."

All are welcome to the Opening Reception on Saturday, October 14 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Alex Ferrone Gallery is located at 25425 Main Road in Cutchogue. For more information, call 631-734-8545 or visit www.alexferronegallery.com.
