SYNCHRONOUS NEW WORK BY ISA NEWBY GAGARIN AT THE PAGE BOND GALLERY FRIDAY, MAY 3, 2019.
The Page Bond Gallery is pleased to present Synchronous a selection of new work by Isa Newby Gagarin. An opening reception for the artist will take place at the Page Bond Gallery on Friday, May 3, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. The exhibition will remain on view through Saturday, June 1, 2019
In her new series of mixed media paintings, Synchronous, the upcoming solo exhibition of multidisciplinary artist, Isa Newby Gagarin (Minneapolis, MN), Gagarin explores forms of visual fragmentation and continuity through color relationships that personify sonic or musical qualities translated over diptychs, triptychs and series of works. This synesthetic inquiry meditates upon color as a constantly changing perceptual experience—an impermanence relative to phenomena of astronomy such as eclipses, tides and celestial orbit.
Gagarin received her BFA in Painting from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (2008), and an MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University (2018). After teaching at VCU as an Instructor of Record from 2017-2018, she went on to accept a faculty position at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design last year. Gagarin has exhibited work across the country, and has completed residencies of national and international accord. Gagarin also has a number of publications to her name, including a 2015 work entitled Aposiopesis, a rhetorical term correlative with concepts relevant to Synchronous.
