WINAND STARING Abstraction In The Elements: On A Water Note

NY Arts Books is pleased to announce the publication of "Abstraction In The Elements:On A Water Note" featuring the work of the Venezuelan-born Dutch artist, Winand Staring.

"Abstraction In The Elements: On A Water Note" is an essential monograph on international artists representing nature in the form of abstract art. The book includes sixteen essays written by the following writers and critics: John Perreault, Raul Zamudio, Mark Daniel Cohen, Piri Halasz, Jamie Dalglish, David Anderson, Maureen Dougherty, Erica Snow, Masaru Emoto, Jamey Hecht, Selma Stern, Greg Steinsieck, Vivek Narayanan, Esmeralda van der Hout, Roland K. Price and Danielle O'Steen. The artists discussed range from Pat Steir to Angelina Nasso, Jan Green, Francisco Infante and more. And there is an in-depth look at Winand Staring, whose paintings focus on nature's most precious resource: water.

Simultaneously with the publication of the book, Broadway Gallery (473 Broadway, 7th Floor) is pleased to feature Winand Staring's first solo exhibition in New York. The show will exhibit new works by the artist, from February 5-28, 2004.

"Winand Staring's paintings show him to be a close observer of water, in all its metaphorical dimensions -water as tempest or calm resolution, as the very essence of expression itself - but they also tell us that he understands that a painting is firstly about its own making. They walk the invisible line between abstraction and figuration and, given the unpredictable qualities of his subject, he managed to have it both ways... The artist's works move from tormented reds to chilling Saharan yellows, and through a hundred moods of blue in between."
-- from Vivek Narayanan's "Containing the Tempest".

CONNECTING ELEMENTS (450 Broadway, 4th Fl., February 6-28):
(Curated by Winand Staring)
United in diversity, this group show speaks of a connecting voyage. Some paintings are figurative: the house of Marco Polo in Venice, the "reunited" bridge in Berlin. Others are abstract: colorful and vibrant, often expressing cosmic visions : "Etat de Non-Lieu". There are references to water in titles like "Cosmos e Agua IV", "Night Tide", "Seascape". One refers to "art arising from the Myth", another of "revelation through meditation". All together in a cosmic connection of elements from Italy to Brasil, from Holland to Guatemala, from France to Macedonia. Curated by Winand Staring.
Participating Artists:
Katarina Benedetich
Alexander de Bruijn
Gloria Dittrich
Purusha van de Graaf
Riccardo Mayr
Jan Mulder
Carel Richter
