Art Exhibit in Newburgh
January 8 @ 1:00 pm - April 1 @ 6:00 pmFree
Artist Philippe Halaburda, who recently arrived in the Hudson Valley from France via Brooklyn, is exhibiting his latest works from now through April 1st at the AGC Gallery, 65 Liberty St., Newburgh.
Working mainly in acrylics on canvas, Halaburda also offers three-dimensional art, such as brightly colored shapes on skateboard decks or an old easel. They are part of an installation that is constantly evolving, highlighted by the use of colored tapes throughout the entire space. His paintings can resemble letters of the alphabet dancing with one another, or tumbling from some high place in chaotic and harmonious compositions. The artist describes some of his work in digital terms as “psychogeographic maps.” He says he “builds imaginary codes and abstract algorithms,” influenced by his emotions and his perception of an environment.
Visitors can enjoy the show by calling 917-353-2064 for an appointment any weekday, or watch him working on-site any Friday, Saturday or Sunday from 1-6 pm.
