Alex Karinsky | SONGLINES
Opening July 18th, 6-10pm
Exhibition of New Paintings July 16-28, 2015
Karinsky’s new paintings emerge as visible pathways connecting us to his world. However, these works are not literal maps, they are instead, memories of place; mind maps that reference the totemic geography of his beloved NYC. Karinsky, inspired by Songlines, has painted his world into existence by mapping out the contents of his territory. The abstracted forms suggest roads, city blocks, structures and shadows; they are stretched and distorted, erased and filled in.
Karinsky’s paintings are a striking marriage of image and material, they are literally pieces of the city, reclaimed and presented back to the viewer. The beautifully painted surfaces, though split and fractured, embody the energy and thrust of the city. These paintings chart a remembered experience within the cityscape, they are essentially Karinsky’s own songlines. Peter Atkins
