NEW YORK, NY â Chelseaâs Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Spanish artist, RamÃ³n A. Olivares in Elements of Abstraction.
Online PR News – 02-April-2012 – New York City – Digital artist RamÃ³n A. Olivares uses line and pattern to explore the visual impact of rhythm, symmetry, and declarative contrast on his audience. Working from a mathematical base, Olivares begins with a black canvas and digitally draws a matrix of vivid curves and ghostly geometric figures. The result is at once traditional and completely new: familiar, organic paisleys and rosettes, but tinted in otherworldly neon. âFrom the beginning of my trajectory as an artist, it has always been my firm intention to innovate,â Olivares says. âMy purpose is to create a new sense of beauty.â
Born in Spain, Olivares began experimenting with the use of vectors in art at a young age while constructing collages, later bringing them into his graphic design work. His work today exhibits the stylization of the graphic aesthetic, but searches for deeper implications. By placing imagery that resonates throughout the history of art into a precise, metrical texture, he highlights the profound mystery of visual language.

About the Exhibition:
Two excellent collective exhibitions will be gracing the walls of Agora Gallery this spring, in addition to a remarkable solo exhibition featuring the works of Austrian artist Fred Friedrich. Elements of Abstraction presents art with the ability to induce a shift in perspective, allowing the viewer to reach new conclusions about what they see and experience that vision in different ways. Portals of Perception displays works which seem to breathe with creative energy and inspiration, and a passionate joy in the world and its complexities which they pass, in turn, to those who see them. In Fin de Ciel: Fred Friedrich / a Solo Exhibition the audience is introduced to the tremendously powerful artwork of a man who is constantly engaged in exploring the balance between the figurative and the abstract, the fluid and the definite. The result is a mesmerizing collection of works which speak across barriers of culture, place or time to reach fundamental elements of existence. The exhibitions will begin on March 30, 2012 and will run until April 19, 2012. The opening reception will take place on April 5, 2012. Entrance is free and all art enthusiasts are warmly encouraged to attend and meet the artists responsible for these enthralling creations.
