Let’s see this new art exhibition at Protected content Gallery! Looking forward to seeing you there!

Pictura-Ferramento: A Duet for Painting and Iron Work is an exhibition featuring the recent collaborative works of painter Michael Mistric and metal worker Richard Brian in two and three dimensional formats. Mistric’s bold, colorful, and highly rhythmic abstractions in oil set the themes for Brian’s improvisations in metal, which frame or support the painted works. Each artist’s contribution harmonizes with the other’s, creating a dynamic and exuberant whole.

The geometrical shapes, patterns, and fluid curves silhouetted in black over strong colors that predominate in Mistric’s work spring spontaneously from his head to his hand without prior deliberation. Brian riffs on these, using metal cutouts, mesh, and iron, sometimes in counterpoint to and at other times in completion of Mistric’s forms. Together, the artists produce works which generate a distinctly personal visual association for each viewer, while expressing their overall joy in the process of creation itself.
