A Chromatic Affair

May 1 - May 25, 2024 | Reception: May 2, 2024, 6-8 PM

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce A Chromatic Affair, an exhibition featuring paintings and sculptures by Latchezar Boyadjiev, Gadi Fraiman, Belle Roth, and Katja van den Bogaert. The show investigates the artists’ personal relationships with color and the significance it holds in conveying messages and emotions.

Bulgarian sculptor Latchezar Boyadjiev stands as a leading figure in contemporary glass art, with an impressive 50 solo exhibitions marking his career. Latchezar Boyadjiev’s monochromatic creations gracefully inhabit the space, casting an aura of ethereal beauty. Evocative of the female body, they curve elegantly along fragmented color planes, each sculpture vibrating at a different energetic frequency. Through the sensual intersection of light, color, and form Boyadjiev integrates beauty into modern architecture and contemporary environments.

A recent addition to the gallery, Gadi Fraiman has maintained a successful sculptural practice in Israel for three decades, creating large-scale statues from stone, and more recently bronze and stainless steel. Fraiman displays two bronze and stainless steel pieces from his newest Balloon Girl series, which portrays young children gleefully immersed in play, symbolizing the innocence and joy of childhood. The exhibition also features two colored bronze sculptures by the artist, Swan and Colored Tango, an exploration of the effect of color on our lives and emotions.

Filipino-American painter Belle Roth will present her newest collection of abstract acrylic paintings, evolving from her signature patterned aesthetic. The pieces feature one or two large circles in the center of the canvas amidst vibrant splashes of color, as symbols of simplicity and peace amidst everyday chaos. Through appeasing blue and pearl tones, each artwork offers stillness to the gaze, reflecting the artist’s quest for balance.
