Kamil Vojnar


on view at our new location at 17 Cricket Ridge Road in Bearsville
August 2 - October 5, 2014

Galerie BMG will be featuring "Elsewhere", a new series of work by mixed media photographer, Kamil Vojnar, beginning August 2, 2014. As a self-taught photographer and painter, Kamil describes his working methods as "flying blind", which is also the title of his earlier series of photographs. Mostly oblivious to proper techniques and processes, Kamil mixes elements the way we might reconstruct last night's dreams. He lets intuition and bits and pieces of materials lead to conclusions, though never really fully finished as he revisits his images over and over again to place them in different logic and contexts.

Kamil's unique approach involves multiple layers of imagery using different photographs and textures. Sometimes he layers on canvas creating one-of-a-kind pieces, while others are digitally layered on fine art paper in small editions. In both instances he varnishes the image with oil and wax, sometimes applying additional oil paint, rendering each piece unique.

"Elsewhere" will be featured at our new Bearsville location, in collaboration with Sweetheart Gallery, which will also feature a retrospective of pottery and sculpture by Norman Bacon, Woodstock artist and co-owner of Sweetheart Gallery.

The exhibit will be on display from August 2- October 5, 2014, with an opening reception on Saturday, August 2, from 4-7 pm at the new gallery space located at 17 Cricket Ridge Road in Bearsville. Regular hours are week-ends from 12 to 5 pm and other times by appointment.
