Opening Reception: Two Solo Exhibitions: "Fragments of the Paradise" and "Remember, Remember"

Samara Gallery is pleased to present the Solo Exhibitions of Luis Moro and Daryl Gannon

“Fragments of the Paradise”
A Solo Exhibition of works by Luis Moro. “Throughout his extensive career, Luis Moro has created his own world founded upon his intense relationship with nature. His work has developed his fascination with the inexhaustible and mysterious forms of the animal world… From a formal point of view, his is a gestural, loose, figurative, active painting in permanent metamorphosis. Such metamorphosis can be observed not only in the motives behind the work, but also in the painting itself. It journeys from the figurative to the abstract continuously, based on a with a great handling of drawing and color.”
-Ana Martínez de Aguilar

“Remeber, Remember”
A Solo Exhibition of works by Daryl Gannon. “This exhibition was born out of the idea that an act of terrorism and high treason has somehow turned into a day of celebrating. Songs and traditions recall a traitor’s execution by annually re-executing him, all while children sing and dance to the memory of his deeds…These paintings are often in response– or direct contrast– to political events. As each new incident is played out and parsed in the circus of the of the 24-hour news cycle, the more obvious it becomes to even the casual observer how wrong it all seems, how misbegotten our attempts at civil society and equality and truth have unfolded. How far we have strayed, in our constant march towards progress, from actual change. By using toys as symbols, these pieces attempt to hold a mirror to the motivations laid bare by our elected officials, and to the powerful corporate entities delving into our pockets to bolster their bottom line. The child-like drawings, incorporating many of my own childrens’ doodles and toys, hint at playfulness, at the truth so obvious to the child’s eye: how absurd all of this is. And so we cope, like the children who dance and chant, burning effigies of poor Guy Fawkes.”
Remember, remember.
