Fairgoers will be able to view and acquire works by a refined selection of emerging, mid-career and blue chip contemporary artists,” says Fair Director Rick Friedman. “Best of all,  there are ‘must have’ treasures for every budget. Wearing my collector hat, I can’t wait to have a shot at these gems.”

Embracing the city’s history and passion for visual arts, the galleries presented at PFAF represent the longstanding cultural vibrancy of Philadelphia .The exhibitors hail from 19 cities, featuring renowned artists from around the world, including Cuba, Latin America, and Europe.

PFAF is thrilled to be able to host the regional fair in a location that aligns with the city’s past. Held in the historic 23rd Street City Troop Armory, a centrally located fortress, the armory was originally built to house the men who helped keep the city safe for centuries, reflecting the fierce loyalty locals hold for their city.

IMMERSE

Roman Fine Art is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition from New York-based artist, Reisha Perlmutter. Titled: Immerse, the show will include over 15 new paintings from her water series, exploring the body, its relationship to water and the science of color. The exhibit will be open July 28 through August 27, 2017 with a reception for the artist Saturday, July 29, 2-5 pm; at 66 Park Place, East Hampton, NY.

For just over a year, Perlmutter has been working on a series of oil paintings depicting women in water, in many of these she is also the subject. She aims to place emphasis on the biological connection between body and water, while finding correlations between her painting philosophy and understanding of color. Color and light move across the skin through the water, in energetic brushwork, blurring the edges between the figure and it’s surrounding environment. Through this connection, we sense that the body and the water are one.

Perlmutter’s imagery allows the viewer to relive and experience this universal and very humanizing connection to water, where one becomes hyper-aware of the body, where it begins and ends, how it moves in nature. Her weightless figures seem to be at complete ease and calm, the dappled light melting into the larger image, inviting our senses to participate in the painting.

Perlmutter draws parallels between the physical relationship with nature and Albers color theory, where color exists purely in its relationship to its surroundings. She explains this relationship as almost linear, “the flesh ends and the water begins, the flesh feels and looks like flesh because of the water,” just as one color will project that which it is relative to.

She also aims to depict bodies that are not overly posed or sexualized. Her work often evokes comparisons to photorealism, however the artist associates photography as data and documentation, which is not part of her objective in practice.

Perlmutter has paintings in numerous private collections in Europe and the US. Her work has been exhibited in galleries in Munich, Miami, Naples, New York and East Hampton.

Emphasis is directed away from individualized anatomy, and onto the body as a whole. The artist finds poetry within the recurring shapes, naturally occurring throughout individual bodies. Capturing natural patterns, she considers DNA, physiology and biology; and particularly in relationship to women and their bodies. Her recent work aims to empower women to appreciate their differences, find a comfortability with their sizes, shapes, and colors.
