Substance And Increase – A Must-See Art Exhibition

View all 13 Photos

In an era where climate change discussions and the relationship between man and nature have been pushed back to the back instead of being at the forefront of public consciousness, the Substance and Increase art exhibition reminds of the undeniable power artists and creative people hold in their hands.
Named after a line in a Walt Whitman poem, the exhibition brings together two artists who both incorporate natural substances in their work, as well as subtle and not-so-subtle incremental changes. The exhibit at the Sapar Contemporary art gallery is curated by Gregory Volk and features works by Japanese artist Shinji Turner-Yamamoto and Portuguese artist Gabriela Albergaria.

Turner-Yamamoto uses not only natural and found materials to create his paintings and sculptures, but also the powers of nature, including rain and wind. He incorporates ceramic archaeological pieces, West Virginia coal and fossils into works of art that pay homage both to nature and to time. Gabriela Albergaria’s artworks include an intricate 11-panel drawing that focuses on the space in between two Sweet Gum trees planted in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. One of her other works playfully references fabric swatches via handmade carpets painted with natural dyes that bring a piece of nature inside living spaces. You can admire these artworks in person by visiting the Tribeca art gallery. The exhibition is open until March 25. Images courtesy of Sapar Contemporary.
