"Red" Existentialism in Art January 19th - February 9 2013
LuminArté Gallery in the Dallas Design District starts off the New Year with a stimulating new exhibition, "Red - Existentialism in Art," which examines our place in the universe and delves into the questions of subjectivity, spirituality and the nature of existence. Existentialism transcends systematic philosophies and affirms introspective “authenticity,” while the color red suggests a primal identity, passionate and profound. Each artist demonstrates this depth of experience and contemplation through very personal explorations of creativity, producing distinctly powerful and moving works of art.
Scheduled from January 19 – February 9, 2013, “Red” features a roster of international artists from around the US, India, Sweden, Russia, Mexico, Israel, England and Sierra Leone as well as a few local favorites, displaying artworks in the media of painting, sculpture, photography and video art. The reception for "Red" will be held on January 19 from 7-10PM at LuminArté Gallery, showcasing the artwork of Wewer Keohane, Puneeta Mittal, Alison Jardine, Kay Dalton, Elizabeth Anyaa, Araceli Salcedo, Jim Lively, Ted Barr, Richard Bailey, Eitan Vitkon, Luba Muravyeva, John Milton, David Hodge and Hi-Jin Kang Hodge.
Award winning artist, Luba Muravyeva, is an accomplished painter and sculptor, with more than a dozen large-scale commissioned sculptures in public spaces throughout the USA, Russia, Ukraine and Moldova. Luba’s artwork vividly portrays a depth of feeling and an exploration of the spiritual evolution of mankind through the expression of empathy and compassion.
“In my perception, the Universe is a constantly flowing energy, the energy radiating from one world and forming new worlds. The Nature of a Human is the same as the Nature of the Universe.”
