NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature Italian-born artist, Sevega Adriano, in A Maze of Milieu. The exhibition is scheduled to run from July 26, 2011 through August 16, 2011 (opening reception: Thursday, July 28, 2011).

About the Artist
Sevega Adriano’s colorful works in oil on canvas adopt abstract expressionistic principles to explore mark making as a form of evocative poetry. Through layers of fragmented gestures that recede and emerge to be seen at varying intervals, Adriano paints with an emotional immediacy which is instantly engaging and appears always on the edge of carrying the viewer to another world entirely. Elaborate swatches of color snake and spread across the frame in spirals and serpentine figurations, entering into the painterly realm of fantasy, imagistic illusion and dream life. Using primarily organic raw canvas and burlap over wood stretchers or panels, Adriano’s classic surfaces, prepared with animal glue and gesso, transmit the energetic potential of pure nature via the expressive realm of talismans and pure artistic vision.

Sevega Adriano was born in 1960 in the Piedmont Region of northern Italy. In addition to painting, he is a professional Art Restorer and Refinisher. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
