curated by Giorgio Vaselli and Kate Cherry, represented by Joe MacGown | press release [pdf]
About the Exhibition
The international Energy Art Movement (EAM) exhibited at the Meridian Museum of Art (MMA) between Oct. 5 – Nov. 26, 2011 with a reception on Oct. 29, 6-8 pm. With over a hundred members around the globe from Romania to Japan and two from Mississippi, the Movement intends to build a multi-span bridge between various parts of the art world.
The Energy Spectrum 2011 is the 5th exhibition of the Movement, after successful exhibitions in Canada, Chicago, Memphis, and most recently the annual Energy Art Salon in Russia. This exhibition intended to show the breadth of what energy art is able to express, as a “spectrum” of concepts and their depictions, analogously to the scientific idea of the electromagnetic spectrum.
A wide range of styles, techniques, and mediums have been presented at the exhibition, from cutting-edge digital fractal flame art, through detailed ink drawings done in hundreds of hours, to the emotive brushwork of energetic expressionism.
