Side to Side, Three Ways, featuring artist Manel Lledós

Arts.  New York, 16/09/2020

The artists in Side to Side, Three Ways work abstractly and all three use the repetitive element of horizontal stripes to different effect and meaning. Emily Berger’s gestural strokes are full of energy. Her horizontal stripes are accented with small vertical marks creating a rhythmic sequence with intervals of stillness. Employing a square format Manel Lledós’s edges are contained within the perimeter of the canvas. His use of straight and curved edges and varying size of horizontal bands, breaks up the surface setting up situations that play with a viewer’s perception. Kim Uchiyama’s paintings are inspired by the landscape of ancient Greece and its temples. Horizontal bands of the colors of these landscapes rest in the natural tones of the support, either canvas or linen. Yet, there is ascending movement and a sense of timelessness and space in these works.

Manel Lledós was born in Barcelona, Catalonia (Spain) in 1955 and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He studied at the Escola de Belles Arts de San Jordi in Barcelona, Spain. Lledós has exhibited his work throughout the Americas and Europe. Solo exhibitions include Joan Prats Gallery, New York, Estudi Pere Mora and Galeria Joan Prats-Artgràfic, Barcelona, Spain. Lledós is a Professor of painting at the Art Department of KCC-CUNY. Awards include a fellowship from The City University of New York in 2014-2015, and a PSC-CUNY Research Grant in 2002 and 2000. Lledós's work is in public collections, including General Electric, New York, NY, Elveiam Museum, Madison, WI, Museum of the City Hall, Barcelona, Spain, and The Consulate General of Spain, New York, NY.

For Lledós, painting is a rapprochement between the tangible and the abstract, the permanent and the transformative, the certain and the unexpected. His painting develops slowly towards an organic geometry which reflects on place, time and belonging.
