Primal Energies, a two-person exhibition featuring the work of Jamal Ince and Diana McClure, explores the life-force energy manifesting principle of the universe.
Primal Energies will be on view at the Cielo Bar & Lounge gallery space, 474 Myrtle Avenue in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, from June 8 – July 8, 2013, with an opening party from 5pm – 8pm on Saturday, June 8th. This exhibition launch is part of the 14th annual SONYA (South of the Navy Yard Artists) Studio Stroll that features work from artists living and working in the Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Wallabout and Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhoods of Brooklyn.
The work of Jamal Ince and Diana McClure intersects via a shared interest in metaphysics, color and composition. However, each artist explores what lies beyond scientific fact through different paradigms, one urban culture and music, the other eastern philosophies and nature. Ince takes music and the act of creation as points of departure, while McClure comments on inner sovereignty, meditation and the pleasures of inner spaciousness.
Ince and McClure first exhibited together as photographers in the 2000 Guerilla’s in the Midst exhibition at Skylight Gallery in Brooklyn. Since then they have both moved on to explore a variety of media, some of which will be on view in the Primal Energies exhibition at Cielo gallery space.
The 14th Annual SONYA Studio Stroll takes places Saturday and Sunday, June 8th and 9th, from 12pm-6pm both days. A location map for open studios can be found at www.sonyaonline.org.
