Review: Eclectic at Gitterman Gallery

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, July 23, 2014
On view through August 1, 2014

Tom Gitterman's summer show Eclectic is aptly named.  Through 45 works by over two dozen artists Gitterman brings us a body of fragments.  Each image belongs to a greater whole, and many works carry the sense of their greater context as much as they leave it behind.  Though fragmented, we can't help but want to draw connections between disparate images.  Some works are easy to ally- several chemical abstractions by Cordier, Chargesheimer, and Catherineau connect with immediacy and set the stage for more links to be established.  We discover a desire to connect more works together though formal qualities, theme, or content.  Gitterman's grouping of images, even online, helps to influence these connections.  Untitled by Charles Wong, Avenue NYC by Joseph Szabo, and Elevateur de Grains by Willy Kessels speak to each other structurally- they have strong upward moving vertical lines and fast-holding anchor-points.  The figure, the landscape, the solitary moment and the street-scene are reappear as staging themes that surface and connect images.  Street-scenes, surreal images, and some over-arching dual themes found in portraits lift the most weight as far as content goes.
