Adam Umbach: Inside Access
"At the end of the day everybody enjoys connecting with something. . .
For the first time in my life I am full-heartedly living the artistic dream I envisioned.
Art making is transcending. It's a moment where one can lose time."
Torn cardboard, wire, pipes, and sticks are used to create bold and graphic element influences from Chinese brush strokes, graininess of print making, and etchings styling. Crude graffiti techniques, tagging, repetitive silk screening indicate an over sensory of visuals in our urban environment as a propaganda and street art cred against the commercial invasion.
Her vision as a Photographer, Art Director and Concept Artist has been invaluable to a wide array of global companies from GoldenEye Spa to Oil of Olay. On assignment throughout the world, Pampalone has been trusted with securing branding images for advertising agencies, travel agencies, bridal companies and cosmetic companies.
Mojo combines industrial materials with found objects to create his kinetic, abstract and realist sculptures. Robert’s work is in private and corporate collections throughout the Hamptons and the US. His kinetic installations ‘Tipping Point XIX’ and ‘Synopsis’ are on loan to Ken Schwenk and Ray Wellen of the Green Thumb at Hayground respectively and are considered well-known and much-loved Hampton landmarks.
Juan Cruz broadened his artistic methodologies and ability to express his art and design through Earth-friendly technologies and ultimately an evolving passion for nature. Juan Cruz’s paintings often inspire questions. Complex geometry and rich textures intrigue viewers who are often surprised to learn that the Paintings are in fact both imaginary abstract worlds and human spaces, often filled with water and constantly with an architectural reminiscent.
Adam Umbach’s new series of paintings explores a collective nostalgia for childhood memories by juxtaposing detailed photorealistic representations of everyday objects with expressionistic mark making. Using his non-dominant hand to create the thickly rendered lines and forms, Umbach constructs a dynamic sense of movement and physicality on the canvas, lending a sculptural, almost three-dimensional quality to the picture plane. This formal tension mirrors the balance between his playful, often humorous choice of subjects with the weight of the memories they symbolize—a sense of loneliness pervading a singular teddy bear, toy truck, or boat combined with the comfort and hope that it brings.
