DANIEL BORLANDELLI: higher Ground: Recent Paintings

September 5 - October 5, 2013

Denise Bibro Fine Art, 529 W 20th St. in Chelsea, is pleased to announce its second solo exhibition of New York based Uruguayan artist, Daniel Borlandelli, Higher Ground: Recent Paintings, opening September 5th through October 5th. Borlandelli’s explosive, multifaceted compositions employ dramatic use of color, as well as several distinct painting and construction techniques. Inspired by nature, he juxtaposes bold, gestural mark-making along with highly rendered symmetrical forms.

Borlandelli’s works conjure a range of natural elements: hot lava spewing from the earth’s core, the delicate bifurcation of plants, river tributaries, and radiant celestial spheres, exploring repetition in nature from an infinitesimal scale to a colossal one. His composition captures forms that are at once at rest, yet bursting with movement and raw energy.

Some of his solo venues include the Uruguayan Cultural Center and 43 8th Avenue Gallery, both in New York, NY; Edward Williams Gallery, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Hackensack, NJ; Studios on the Square Gallery, Roanoke, VA; Jennifer Gallery, Avon, CT; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Montevideo, Uruguay. He also has exhibited at the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center, Brooklyn, NY; and the Museum of American Art of Maldonado, Maldonado, Uruguay. He is the recipient of the Pan Am award for Young Artist of Uruguay; the Calle Entera Gallery Vincent Van Gogh Award; and was elected “Best Emerging Artist of the Year” in 1987 by the International Art Critics Association, Filial, Uruguay. He is represented exclusively by Denise Bibro Fine Art.
