Art Uptown, Sarasota, presents artist Dion Kurczek who will show dramatic acrylic ink abstracts, in his solo exhibit "Fluid Visions". The show runs from March 30 through April 26 2019, with an Artist Reception Friday, April 5, from 6 to 9pm... It's a perfect time to ask the artist about his intriguing techniques.
"When They Meet"
Whereas many artists attempt to capture nature’s intricate beauty on canvas using traditional tools — brushes and palette knives — Dion takes a different approach, preferring to minimize direct application of his mediums. In his Fluid Visions exhibition, he combines brilliantly colored inks, oils, and other chemicals, guiding these materials on a smooth panel surface to produce striking compositions of light, darkness, and color. The resulting work is then coated in a layer of glass-like resin. This layer highlights the intricate details of the piece, as well as enhancing its contrast and vibrancy. Each painting evokes a specific feeling or image, which informs its title. But what you might discover in each Fluid Vision is limited only by your imagination. Art Uptown warmly welcomes its patrons and friends to share its thirty-ninth season in its central location on Sarasota’s vibrant Main Street. The diverse works of 30 artists are shown daily: Monday-Thursday, 11-5, Friday 11-9, Saturday 11-5, and Sunday 12-5. We welcome you to come meet our artists all day on Saturdays and Friday nights until 9pm. Telephone: 941-955-5409. www.artuptown.com.
