October 16 - November 20, 2010

Opening Reception: 
Saturday, October 16th 7-9 pm 

Featuring works by Emil Alzamora, Sasha Blanton, Jen Blazina, Jordan Eagles, Gwyneth Scally and Carlos Tarrats

Eschatology II is a continuation and adaptation of Positron’s show, Eschatology. Often in reference to the end of the world, the Oxford English Dictionary defines Eschatology as "concerned with ‘the four last things: death, judgment, heaven, and hell’". In Eschatology II, guest curator Cherí Landry invites you to explore this branch of theology through a selection of works by Emil Alzamora, Sasha Blanton, Jen Blazina, Jordan Eagles, Gwyneth Scally and Carlos Tarrats. The artists featured reside in New York, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Tucson and Los Angeles.

Landry has transformed a space full of colorful, explosive paintings and apocalyptic dioramas with her own interpretation of the theme. The room, now completely void of color except for occasional pops of blood red, takes on a more serious tone. There is a somber quietness to the paintings, sculptures and photographs that now adorn the gallery walls. Landry’s perspective focuses on mortality in both a physical and spiritual sense, while raising questions about existence and the mysterious after-life.

DFA Welcomes Emil Alzamora & Jordan Eagles

Divergence Fine Art is now a proud promoter of artists
EMIL ALZAMORA and JORDAN EAGLES, two exciting additions to an already stellar group of cutting-edge artists. 

Emil Alzamora was born in Lima, Peru 1975. He currently lives and works in Beacon, New York. Emil has produced and shown his work regularly throughout the United States and Europe. "The human form is a constant within my work. I am interested in exploring what it means to inhabit one, often exaggerating or distorting different aspects of the form to reveal an emotional or physical situation, or to tell a story about a predicament or an occurrence. The space between limitation and potential is as human as the flesh, yet hardly as tangible. In my works I strive to make visible this interaction."  View images of Emil's work and more...
New York City artist Jordan Eagles is sometimes referred to as the “Blood Artist,” but this oversimplifies the intricate and significant nature of his experimental works and self-invented process spanning over ten years.  Eagles’ unique pieces in bovine blood and acrylic resin produce a visceral impact that has been described as “immediate and unshakable” and “mysteriously beautiful” by the New York Times.

DFA Installation Project @ AAF NYC

Just returned from a week in NYC where Divergence Fine Art was selected to present a special installation at this year's Affordable Art Fair. The project featured giant jellyfish sculptures by Gwyneth Scally accompanied by the hypnotic sounds and visuals in Laura McClanahan's latest video, "Hydrosis". While selling video art and gigantic jellyfish sculptures in a city already limited on space is quite a challenge, the installation added an exciting new element to this year's fair.

Creative Alliance's annual gala bash is one of the great parties of the year! Whether you like the Baz Luhrmann version with Nicole Kidman, or the 1952 Huston classic, be inspired by gaudy visions of left bank Paris circa 1880-where sailors and scions slummed it with artists, intellectuals and scantily clad dancing girls. Hey, sounds like The Patterson! Tonight's honorees: BMA Director Doreen Bolger and culture worker Catherine Pancake. Swingin' Swamis w/ jazz singer Felicia Carter have you kickin' your legs. Dress bohemian, burlesque, formal Francais or simply red, but look fabulous! Dinner 7pm, Party 9pm.
