For the latest on what’s happening at hob’art visit News and Events
OCTOBER 7 – OCTOBER 30, 2016
OPENING RECEPTION: OCTOBER 8, 2016 6-8 PM
Artists Alberte Bernier, Liz Cohen, Ann Kinney, Janet Kolstein, and Ibou Ndoye
Through a variety of media and techniques from painting and photography to sculpture and installation, these five artists will present powerful pieces that reflect their thoughts, passions, and visions. Their varied experiences have inspired each of these unique people to create works that are wholly their own expression of the world around them. The combination of their many talents, skills, and concepts have made for an exciting and stimulating show.
Alberte Bernier, “My work is set in color contrasts. These contrasts are infused with intensity of tone, making a backdrop of multi-layered hues.”
Liz Cohen,”I enjoy using found objects, recycled materials, and items I have collected to make cross-cultural objects that I call dolls.”
Ann Kinney, “I have been using color and shape with mixed media in an effort understand nature’s rhythmic pattern.”
Janet Kolstein, “Over the years, I have collected antique and vintage material for my mixed-media collages. This exhibit also includes original computer-manipulated limited-edition giclee prints that continue my love of creating a dreamy narrative embracing the old with the new.”
Ibou Ndoye, “My work tells stories about the street life of people from my original home Dakar, Senegal and now from my American home here in Jersey City and NYC. I am drawn to peoples’ facial expressions and often paint and sculpt their stories by using these expressions.”
