NEUTRAL GROUND

PRESS RELEASE

(New Orleans, LA):  TEN GALLERY is pleased to present, NEUTRAL GROUND, an exhibition by New Orleans based artist Peter Barnitz.  For his fifth solo exhibition at the gallery, Barnitz reveals his latest medley of contemplative mixed media works that encourage a dialogue between organic form, geometric structure and abstract landscape.  Inspired by nature, light and life,  Barnitz creates visually complex , deeply meditative abstractions that combine the notion of movement with the appreciation of the schematic.

Delicately rendered, merging the familiar with his personal dialect of abstraction, Barnitz finds inspiration in the work of numerous canonic artists, such as Agnes Martin, Jasper Johns, Frank Stella, Marcel Duchamp, Antony Gormley, Brice Marden and Pablo Picasso.  Through a blueprint of interwoven and playful geometric clusters, Barnitz explores the passage of time, the mesh of nature and poise of the human spirit.  Neutral Ground provides a meeting ground for dialogue, compromise, contemplation and dreams.  

The exhibition opens May 4 and runs through May 30.  An artist reception will be held from 6 - 9 p.m.  on FRIDAY, May 4, 2018.

Peter Barnitz on NEUTRAL GROUND........

"Neutral Ground refers to the space between or middle ground, where communication and understanding transpire.  Neutral Ground can be defined as an area of compromise or possible agreement between two extreme positions.  In a world filled with the constant bombardment of distraction and confrontation, we must all find a venue for acceptance, connection and peace.  By merging the familiar with a personal vocabulary of abstraction, my work focuses on bringing people together through dialogue, contemplation, compromise and dreams.

As we celebrate the tricentennial of New Orleans, there are many things which make our city special.  "Neutral Ground" is a unique term to our area that can be defined as something more than just a grassy median between two streets.  It represents a place where strangers ascend to stake claim to a prime space for Mardi Gras, then leave as friends and family.  Neighbors look out for each other, sharing friendly conversation, food, drink, ladders and chairs.  It is a place that truly brings people together.  

What does it mean to you?"

Come on DOWN to RIVERTOWN!!! Saturday, January 20th (5 - 8 PM)

The Kenner RIvertown Arts Council presents...
Down By The River: P.S. Satellite - A Project of Prospect New Orleans


The exhibition is a curated selection of art in various media that emphasizes our relationship with the water in which we live with every day. From the river to the lake, to the swamps and surrounding spillways, we are surrounded and connected. A selection of local artists interprets their personal interactions with the water involving topics such as life, meditation, peace, growth, healing, nourishment, recreation, mythology, satire, even fear and adventure. Just like the river, our lives are ever changing moving and connected to each other.  

The exhibition will include murals and a Pop Up art exhibition in the Kenner Rivertown Community Courtyard.

Artist/Curator Peter Barnitz on the inspiration for the exhibition...

"The face of the water, in time, became a wonderful painting--a painting that was a dead language to the uneducated passenger, but which told its mind to me without reserve, delivering its most cherished secrets as clearly as if it uttered them with voice.  And it was not a painting to be visited once and thrown aside, for it had a new story to tell every day"  (Mark Twain:  Life on the Mississippi)



Artists IncludedJoshua Windham, Alfredo Ott IIIPeter Barnitz, Angel Perdomo, James Flynn, Kay Franz, Katie Puchot, Dwight Harris, Antoine Prince, Demetria Bridges, Cheri Ben-iesau, Dianne Georgy Garrett, Marlena Doherty, Zulay Herrera, Drew CookeTimothy Barr Rowland, Christian Perkins, Andie Cancienne, David Rex Joyner, Danny Jupiter, Kevin Hunts and Charlie Johnson.
