Dina Brodsky has joined forces with curator Trek Lexington to make the palette’s painters becomes something very important in a group exhibition titled Point of Origin. Over time, a painter’s palette is often considered not important in the artists’ work since it only works as a tool where the creative process sit, that’s why it often goes overlooked, overshadowed by the paint, the brush, and even the canvas.
Brodsky and Lexington have invited more than 50 artists from around the globe as not only to use their palette as a tool, but rather to treat it as the work of art itself.
“One way to get a glimpse into the artist’s mind, as well as into their practice is the painter’s palette. It is both practical and intimate, acquiring layers of paint as well as memories, reflecting intent and execution, storing the ghosts of paintings that have long since left the studio. The palette is the point of origin from which ideas become realized and paint is transformed into a reflection of the human experience. Whatever shape or form the surface or substrate takes, it all begins when brush meets palette.” says the exhibit.
Just check out for a taste of the gorgeous palette paintings sent in to this exhibition. There was a live exhibition of such pieces titled Point of Origin on Thursday, October 13, 2016 and remain on display at The Lodge Gallery in New York through November 13, 2016.
