Abend Gallery is honored to present the exhibition "A Matter of Light and Death," curated by Jeremy Caniglia. Mark your calendars for its grand opening on February 3rd, 2024, and beyond, as we continue to celebrate this captivating showcase that pays tribute to the enduring legacy of Caravaggio.
The exhibition serves as a platform for contemporary artists who, inspired by Caravaggio's mastery of chiaroscuro and storytelling, carry the torch of this time-honored tradition while fearlessly pushing the boundaries of modern realism.
Here's what curator Jeremy Caniglia has to say about the collection: "Caravaggio in his short life knew painting was a matter of light and death. Caravaggio understood the immediacy of the human condition. This exhibition showcases painters, draftsmen, and printmakers who are the continuum of the tradition of Caravaggio and his devotion to chiaroscuro and storytelling. The artwork in this exhibition features the next generation of realist painters who are not afraid to push subject matter and storytelling into the darkest and most beautiful areas of timeless pathos. These are the new Masters ….the continuum of narrative storytelling giving the viewer a glimpse into the heliocentric world where painting becomes timeless."
We invite you to experience "A Matter of Light and Death" at Abend Gallery, where we celebrate the past, present, and future of narrative storytelling in art.
