SPEAKING IN HUES: Frankenthal | DeLuccia | Tint

Octavia Art Gallery | New Orleans

April 3 – 24, 2021

Opening reception: Saturday, April 3, 10am–6pm

 

Octavia Art Gallery is pleased to present Speaking in Hues, a three-woman exhibition featuring colorful abstract paintings by North Eastern based artists Danielle Frankenthal, Paula DeLuccia, and Francine Tint. This is the artists’ first exhibition at Octavia Art Gallery.

 

 

Danielle Frankenthal’s paintings focus on light, as she describes, “the most humanly perceivable form of pure energy which allows us sight; and as the great spiritual metaphor.” She paints on transparent Acrylite® layers to mimic the way adults see, which is through their cultural programming and life experiences. Her works are light interactive and change with the ambient light and as the viewer alters their orientation.

 

Frankenthal was born in New York City and resides in New Jersey. She attended prep schools, obtained a degree in philosophy from Brandeis University, and then enrolled at the Art Students League, NY. She most recently had solo exhibitions at Mizuma and Kips Gallery, both in New York City. Frankenthal has works in public collections including the Columbus Museum of Art, GA; Museum of Fine Arts Houston, TX; Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, NY; The McNay Art Museum, TX, among others.

 

 

Paula DeLuccia believes that being able to make art is a multi-layered gift. For her, being artist requires courage to believe in yourself enough to enter the studio, to push the work, and to destroy it in order to move on and expand. She has learned that she is better off expanding her experience rather than narrowing it. While in her studio, DeLuccia pays attention to her mental dialogue which is sometimes disquieting chatter that she attempts to suppress, while at other times it hums along in the background. “What gets made is a combination of everything I’ve seen and experienced.” – Paula DeLuccia

 

DeLuccia studied at the Kansas City Art Institute, MO, and the Ridgewood School of Art, NJ. She has had solo exhibitions at the Sideshow Gallery, NY, The Hair Gallery, NY, among several other two person and group exhibitions. DeLuccia has works in public and private collections including the City of Barcelona, Spain; Art/Omi, NY; Pondside Press, NY, and more.

 

 

The color field and action painting movements have always influenced Francine Tint’s work. She is a colorist first and foremost. She works instinctively, creating expressive pieces, which convey a unique engagement with light, color, and surface. She integrates mixed media within her paintings, including hand drawn elements, poured washes, and collage. Her paintings are the result of a process of disclosure, drawn from her own life events, dreams, and literature.

 

Tint has been the proud recipient of grants and awards such as the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Grant, two Pollock Krasner Grants, and a recent Honorable Mention from the Butler Institute. Her work has been shown extensively both nationally and internationally and is held in the permanent collections of over 27 museums, including the Portland Art Museum, the Heckscher Museum of Art, NY, and the Krannert Art Museum, IL. She has been featured in over 30 solo shows, most recently at Cavalier Galleries in New York City.
