Event Description

Laughing Samurai and Twelve21 Gallery present their latest exhibition, Extra-Estetica, opening to the public on Friday, October 17, 2014 from 6-9 PM. This solo exhibition, curated by Alya Poplawsky and Katy Bakker, features a series of new works by Brooklyn-based artist, Olivié Ponce. 

Extra-Estetica launched in New York this past January as Ponce's first solo-exhibition and is now making its way to Florida this Fall. This series of paintings represents the beauty of civilization in decay through layers of enamel on found plexi-glass, allowing the viewer to look further than what is present. Though these paintings are heavily influenced by his experiences in both Mexico City and Brooklyn, they are universally identifiable as daily life in urban cities. Abstract landscapes and illusionary dreamscapes are created, depicting imagery of telephone poles, bridges and industrial elements of an urban landscape while evoking feelings of romanticism. 

Olivié Ponce was born in Mexico City and trained in Fine Arts at Universidad de Guanajuato (BFA). Since 2007,Ponce has lived and worked in Brooklyn, New York. He was represented by FONCA (National FUnd FOr The Culture and Arts, Mexico) in 2001 and 2005. He participated at the NYFA Mentoring Program for immigrant artists in 2009. Ponce has exhibited his work in several international venues; Gallery Ho, Seoul Korea; The Brick Lane Gallery, London UK; and La Esmeralda Gallery, Mexico CIty. 

Artwork will be available for viewing and purchase in-house and online at twelve21gallery.com following the opening.
