José-Ricardo Presman's "The Ultimate Goal of Art and Artists"
Presented on Saturday, June 23, 2018 at 4PM at Amos Eno Gallery
In conjunction with his solo exhibit, "What Happens When You Die and When You're Born", José-Ricardo Presman delivered an artist talk titled "The Ultimate Goal of Art and Artists" at the Amos Eno Gallery, 56 Bogart St., Bushwick, Brooklyn, on Saturday, June 23 at 4 PM.
Unlike other artist talks, this one focused on familiarizing the listener with contrarian observations, starting with examples from projective geometry. Descriptions include; the perspective of humans on Earth as central: seven distinct conditions of consciousness: Plato and Einstein: three results of cognition. The conclusions will give the audience a starting point to an artist's experience and how it differs from the ordinary everyday view. Those attending received information about contiguous structures of reality and perception from ancient times to today. Presman explored how these models relate to creative thinking and the production of art as a truth postulate.
Presman's art attempts to re-integrate the "on-looker separation" mentality that continues to proliferate in culture. He considers experiencing his installations as the optimal way to begin this process. His muted colors and the consistent form of his pen and pencil drawings explore the view of reality existing as light and dark - light being infinite and instantaneous.
José-Ricardo Presman was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and has exhibited in many group shows in the U.S. and Canada. This is his latest of numerous one-person exhibitions at the Amos Eno Gallery. The exhibition is open Thursdays to Sundays, 12-6 PM.
