Veronique Gambier

Artist Statement

Through saturated color, geometric compositions, and fluid gestures, my monochromatic imagery explores concepts of openness, the unknown, and undefined space.  I am searching to represent the contradictions and oppositions that can exist within single beings.  My intention is to merge the contradistinctive values of my themes and materials.  I want to suggest intimate but forward movement—a limitless movement in time and space. I am looking for the unrevealed.

I create my paintings using highly diluted acrylic, ink and watercolor on paper.  The surface becomes part of the medium as I integrate the white of the background as an element equal
to the paint.  This process forces me to trust and follow the path presented to me.  During the painting and drying process, I lay the surface horizontally to avoid the effects of gravity that come into play when using water-based media on a vertical surface.

The Apertures series—my largest body of work—aims to capture single, yet multi-faceted moments as they unfold.  With these paintings I attempt to define space and express infinity simultaneously.  My entire body, arm, hand and brush flow in a continuous motion to produce
a direct mark.  



Born in the south of France, Véronique Gambier started to paint on large scale canvases
at the age of 12 under the guidance of French Master Pierre Pallut, developing a strong sense
of color and abstraction. She attended L’école des Beaux Arts de Toulon (College of Fine Art
of Toulon) and L’école des Beaux Art de Luminy (Luminy College of Fine Art) in Marseille. Beginning at the age of 17, she participated in several group shows in the south of France.

Always drawn towards texture as well as color, Véronique chose to pursue a career in fashion which lead her to Paris, London and then New York. After working in fashion, then as a Graphic Designer, Gambier decided to devote her time to painting. Today Gambier is committed on a full time basis to her artwork and exhibits in group shows in the NY area.

Gambier’s creative process is to capture the contradistinctive values of the media she uses.
She seeks to express tension rather than harmony, movement rather than stillness.
“For me, balancing light and dark is the pure essence of imagery”.
Gambier lives in Brooklyn, NY.

Darryl Hudak

Artist Statement

In what I call improvisational sketch painting, I create with “marks” on heavy canvas-like paper, using pigment, urethane, papers, and various found materials. I solve visual puzzles, controlling and defining fluidity. I create from my experience and in the moment. When my materials marry with skill, luck, and each other in a harmonious way that others find useful, it fills a void."



Darryl Hudak’s art has been exhibited at Trestle Gallery at Brooklyn Art Space and BAG in Gowanus Brooklyn. Recent group exhibitions include 2012 Winter Salon Shows at Brooklyn Art Space and 3Walls group exhibition in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.

Darryl’s work is informed by his career experiences in industrial, graphic, and furniture design and fine woodworking; as well as home design and restoration. His custom furniture has been featured in Barney’s New York and Bloomingdales, as well as in the Hunter Museum of Art. He has served as Creative Director and consultant to well-known fashion brands including Henri Bendel, Gap., Old Navy, Ann Taylor, Brooks Brothers, Estee Lauder and Keds. Darryl’s work is based on a philosophy of “simplify – edit – prioritize” to achieve honest and pure results.

His work in architectural interiors, furniture, and lighting has been published in The New York Times Home section, Interior Design, Metropolitan Home, Metropolis, Nashville Magazine, and Glass Canada. 

A graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology, Darryl has also taught in Bachelor of Fine Arts programs, including at Tennessee Tech University’s Appalachian Center for Craft in Smithville and Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. 

Darryl lives and works in Brooklyn, where he keeps a studio at Brooklyn Art Space in Gowanus, and in Hillsdale, New York. He has one daughter.

Scott Ferguson

Artist Statement

"This series of works are about space and atmosphere. Starting out from the what I call the “post-industrial landscape” they move father and father away until the images hover between representation and abstraction. The metamorphosis that happens is not planned but arises through the process of painting. This process of painting evolves striping away the initial imagery and laying it to waste. Shapes and lines take on various phenomenons. Finding that tension between the two creates the mystery that I am striving for."

Rob Stephenson

Artist Statement

In his collection of short stories, Memories of the Space Age, author JG Ballard writes of a near future in which the infrastructure of the US Space Program has been abandoned, its gantries left to decay into the Florida swamp, its astronauts drifting in an endless orbit.

When the last Space Shuttle took off from Kennedy Space Center in 2011, a community defined by the dreams of the Space Age was, like Ballard’s astronauts, cast adrift. What was once the lynchpin of the community’s identity vanished overnight taking away thousands of jobs and tourists in the process. Pride and promise were replaced by a nostalgia for the future as the landscape gradually started to resemble Ballard’s fictional depictions.

Ballard’s recurring motifs - run down motels, empty swimming pools and overgrown jungles - occupy that ambiguous realm between dream and reality, between past and future, and between nature and technology. These pictures are a portrayal of that space.

Cecelia Rembert

Artist Statement  

     "The spark of my painting is interior. An idea, emotion or event is the seed, and surrounding that seed are a constellation of concurrent ideas, a nebula of the history and context that surrounds each idea or event. In my work I explore the idea and its many satellites, compressing ideas and narratives on top of each other spatially and temporarily. Through color, mark and image, I make real the seed so that I can see it. My paintings serve as visual journal and narrative, condensing and exploring life events, memories and thoughts. 

     The initiating seed is personal, but the work is intended to be universal, to resonate with others. My paintings are inscribed with myths old and new, metaphors and signs. I am interested in archetypes, symbols and images, and how these form a language of their own, woven throughout history. I see life as multi-layered, our unique individual interactions overlaid on an ancient armature of mythic archetypes and narratives that we rarely recognize. I invite these narratives into my work, and even as I am excavating a seed of my personal experience, I am relishing its temporal and existential universality."
