    ClampArt & Anna Zorina Gallery

     

    Anna Zorina Gallery inaugurated Summer on Champs-Elysees (through August 23rd), a group show that compares the work of five different artists by taking inspiration from the cultural diversity that can be found on the famous Parisian avenue. The contrast between the pieces could not have been stronger; Nate Burbeck’s oil paintings resemble Hopper’s idealized America, while Hans Scheib’s colorful wood sculptures are as toys yet the figure’s expressions articulate a sense of sadness. Shaun Ellison’s watercolors depict archaic figures emerging from the background with staring eyes; while Alexander Kaletski’s paintings on cardboard, ironically play on the role of advertisement. Definitely an inspiring show!

  15. thanks cross-connect for posting my art:

    Nate Burbeck is an artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota.

    My paintings consist of large panoramic landscapes depicting isolated moments of the surreal within the context of contemporary culture. These scenes aim to explore and externalize the psychological underpinnings of American society and to question perceptions of reality. My interest is in revealing America as a social landscape and also to reflect an internal space. The placement of fantastical or dreamlike elements in these narratives creates tension between what is familiar and what is distinctively surreal.
