Vernissage of BINARIO by Maddine Insalaco and Joe Vinson, November 22nd from 5-8PM at the Cultural Center

ST.STEPHEN'S CULTURAL CENTER
is pleased to invite you to the vernissage of
BINARIO by Maddine Insalaco and Joe Vinson

Thursday, November 22nd from 5-8PM
Via Aventina, 1-corner with Viale Aventino

 

BINARIO – Two Tracks Moving Forward

Using the metaphor of the “Binario” or Rail Track, this exhibition presents works reflecting the couple’s respective pictorial interests: two lines of investigation, separate and distinct; moving forward together. The root of both bodies of work is an interest in exploring the properties of color. Vinson’s elegant abstractions find their inspiration in the color contrasts observed in outdoor painting and expressed through the pure material substance of paint alone.  The large works of Insalaco on the other hand, while rooted in a figurative tradition, focus on the juxtaposition of clean strokes of color which allow forms to emerge as well as how scale effects narrative perception.

 

Artists Maddine Insalaco and Joe Vinson have divided their lives between homes in New York City and Tuscany where they have taught landscape painting workshops together for over 20 years.  Experts on the historical origins of open air painting in Italy and its influence on Modernism, they have published, lectured and curated museum exhibitions on the subject in the USA and Italy including the Palm Springs Art Museum, the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Macon, Sotheby’s, and the Forte Sangallo in Civita Castellana.  They have also made contributions to the positive identification and significance of related works in collections of major museums among which are the Victoria and Albert in London, the Musee des Beaux Arts in Orleans, and the Morgan Library in New York.
