Notes and Chords at Adjacent To Life

Peter_Stankiewicz.jpg

Tinsquo's curatorial project, Adjacent To Life, presents Notes and Chords by Peter Stankiewicz.

The show finds sculptor Peter Stankiewicz returning to painting after a hiatus from the medium and debuting his first sculptural reliefs. Composed of plastic airbrushed with acrylic paint, the works derive initial inspiration in the dazzle patterns deployed on ships during World War I.

Stankiewicz states:

"As I worked I ended up liking simpler designs with just a few blocks of color. Some of them began to look to me like piano keys, and I started to think of the idea of just a few notes or a chord sounding over a quiet background. I think the hard geometric edges of the shapes help emphasize the quality of the colors, leaving only simple proportions and a little paint texture as the other elements involved."

Notes and Chords runs through March 2 and is on view at the Adjacent to Life pop-up gallery housed in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B, New York City).

Puerto Rican Parrot or Iguaca (Amazona vittata)

acrylic on canvas, 16" x 20"
The Iguaca or Puerto Rican Parrot is the only extant bird endemic to the archipelago. Once teeming, its numbers consisted of just 13 individuals in 1973. Since then, concerted conservation efforts are gradually enabling the species to rebound from the brink.

This painting is a tribute to the 13 birds who represent that bottleneck.

In conjunction with Ryan John Lees exhibit, Soul of a City, it will be offered for auction with proceeds going to the Loisaida Center and hurricane relief.

Opening: January 19, 6-8:30 pm. Loisaida Center, 710 East 9th Street, NYC.
