Join Eurocircle and wish us ¡Buen viaje! as we depart on our annual adventure to Peru. To celebrate our journey, Art Loft PA has selected works by a very talented Peruvian sculptor Emil Alzamora and painter Tm Gratkowski.
Sculptor Emil Alzamora, born in Peru and educated and working in the US, brings a unique affinity for the human form, which is a constant in his work. He is interested in exploring what it means to inhabit one, often exaggerating or distorting different aspects of the form to reveal an emotional or physical situation, or to tell a story about a predicament or an occurrence. Limitation and potential are as human as the flesh, yet hardly as tangible. In his works, this interaction is rendered visible.
Tm Gratkowski delivers a process-driven body of work about words, meanings, messages and how they are viewed and appropriated in a contemporaneous media-driven world. Refusing to be confined by the term “collage”, Tm Gratkowski continues to develop new techniques commonly attributed to painting—layering, scraping, blending - and applying them to paper. His creations are not only visually dynamic and stimulating, but they are chock-full of historic and social content and complexity.
The evening concludes with a gallery talk.
