Words, Images Judith Ecochard
WHAT: Chair and the Maiden Gallery, a Greenwich Village gem of a gallery/ salon that displays artworks from emerging artists had another packed opening night for the forceful painting by the artist ULYSESS.
PHILOSPHY: “Through a continued transformative journey that has surpassed nearly three years, the work of Ulysses has successfully attained the most simple of philosophies: the expression of truth.”
SCENE: The global art community joined black clad scenesters to view this incredibly forceful work. Although the passion and artist’s being, so-to-speak cannot be reduced to a few sound-bites, our chat with Ulysses touched us…and at times reminded us of this challenging religion class with took with the noted scholar/MacArthur “genius” grant winner- Elaine Pagels.
EXHIBITION: A large canvas with thick paint applied at times “inch by inch…through tears.” We channeled a primal Genesis/The Rapture vibe going on.
