Second Movement Makes Music Visual

by Lucy Gellman | Feb 17, 2015 2:27 pm

In a quiet, white-walled gallery somewhere that is not quite of this world or the next hang three paintings in a neat row, the canvases still smelling of fresh paint and stretched taut over their wood frames. The first, most graceful of ink wash paintings, emits folksy and sweeping Hungarian melodies just a hair away from Zoltán Kodály. Viewers may find themselves in a pentatonic trance. The second, a dark, deep watercolor still slightly wet on the page, hums of Béla Bartók, its colors just a moment away from explosion. The third, a opaque gouache that blends slightly into the background, sings of Maurice Ravel, and a time — or rather, artistic method — caught between old and new, the joy of the present and threat of the future.

Jessie Smolinski Photo On the third floor of the Yale University Art Gallery, a squeaky but sure conversation about Rothko was afoot as a pint-sized New Havener and his mother compared notes on the artist’s No. 3 of 1967.

Artists Get In The Zone

by David Sepulveda | Jan 28, 2015 1:15 pm | Comments (3)

Laid out across across the deep-red damask tablecloth were rows, stacks, and booklets full of the small, intricate line drawings artist Daniel Eugene has been creating for years. For Eugene, each drawing was like a spiritual vitamin, a collaboration of pen and mind made during daily, mapless journeys.

Eugene is one of three New Haven artists who conceive of their art as a form of meditation.
