Artist Roy Kinzer is exhibiting a body of work at the David Teiger Gallery for Studio Arts at Newark Academy from September 22 – October 24, 2017. A reception at Newark Academy will be held on Thursday, October 5, 2017, from 5:30-7:00 pm. In addition to sharing his work with the Newark Academy Community, Mr. Kinzer has been chosen to be the 2017-18 Artist-in-Residence.
The exhibit, entitled Reservoirs of Possibility, features paintings of fractal landscapes and cityscapes derived from digitally altered topographical maps and satellite images. Upon first approach, the paintings offer striking impressions of aerial views of locations that seem to have atmospheric layers of color and pattern infused. Moving in for a closer look, one discovers a myriad of subtleties and details that both sink back into the landscape and also rise to the surface. The use of collaged maps brings together abstract and representational shapes, and highlights the fractal patterns that surround us, both in nature and man-made.
