Bardoment Reception says
Please join us for Tony Vincenti’s MFA reception at CentralTrak, “Bardoment". The exhibition offers collage of experience, mixing still image, moving image, and sound; “the chance meeting of two worlds” a process that can extend for years.
Influenced by the likes of Meister Eckhart (a priest), the poet Edward Taylor, and Morihei Ueshiba (a martial artist), Vincenti says he’s drawn to individuals who bring a spiritual or genuinely mystical quality to their vocation.
“I think art is meant to develop a person internally; to help him learn how to organize experience, to see harmonies and to foster harmonic growth."Vincenti finds meditation more helpful to his practice than “art school discourse.” His studies have been focused on Asian art philosophies and concepts, like rasa theory, aucitya, and chi-yun.
“Art is meant to stop conversation rather than generate conversation. I believe art is communion rather than communication, and so it's not conducive to discourse at the lower levels of subject and 'aboutness.'" - Tony Vincenti
Reception is Saturday August 6th 8-10 pm, exhibition runs until the 20th with gallery hours Saturdays noon to 5 or by appointment.
