Performance by Red Grass 5:30 pm
The walls of this exhibition show breadth and power in Mike Tiné’s recent work. His paintings challenge us with wild psycho-scapes, saturate us in strong blue and salmon, and mystify us with their symbolic juxtapositions, as with Blue Virgin and When Angels Dance. The artist is different in person; non-assuming, light-hearted, your next-door neighbor, perhaps joking darkly.Ventura, California painter and sculptor, Mike Tiné was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1944. He obtained a BFA in painting at the University of Tennessee and an MFA in sculpture at the University of Wyoming. Currently residing and painting in Ventura at the WAV artists’ complex, Tiné also keeps a sculpture studio at Art City Gallery and Studios.
Displayed in clusters of thought and form throughout the large exhibition hall, we see and experience free-standing stone sculptures by Ventura artists JoAnne Duby, Greg Kailian and Chris Provenzano. These artworks span the artists’ careers; exclamation points, question marks and periods punctuating prolific bodies of work in stone. All of these artworks were created at Art City Studios. In some cases, as in Aleut, a collaboration between Chris Provenzano and Jo Anne Duby, we see schools and lineages of technique develop.
