Rise Art @ Gallery Primo Alonso: A conversation with the Curators and Artists of Gallery Primo Alonso's current exhibition, God is in the Details.
Rise Art is proud to announce its support of Gallery Primo Alonso showing âGod is in the Details' presented by co-curators Medeia Cohan-Petrolino and Justin Hammond. This group show features 13 artists working in a variety of disciplines, drawn together for their demonstration of dexterity, craftsmanship and a thorough and meticulous approach to his or her practice.
Co-curator Justin Hammond notes that "The idea for this show came about last year when myself and Medeia noticed a rising trend at degree shows of artists beginning to swing away from loud, showy or even abstract work and back toward more subtle and precise work with high levels of craftsmanship and intricacy."
God is in the Details celebrates not only the exquisitely fastidious final products but also highlights the captious processes by which the works are realised. Artists such as 2008 Catlin Prize winner Alex Ball can take as long as six months to complete a piece between the research stage and adhering to a rigorous layering procedure. Ball admits, "My work employs techniques and processes that border on the obsessive or even the absurd. I often concentrate on painting perfectly smooth gradated areas or choose
subjects that allow for an almost limitless level of detailing."
