Artist Kelyne Reis Announces Unveiling of The New Series “DIGITAL EMBRACING: Modification & Fragmentation Towards a New Wholeness”

 

Houston (August 25, 2015) – Artist Kelyne Reis will be unveiling the new series Digital Embracing at her private studio, #213, in Silver Street Studios on Friday, September 25th from 5-8 p.m. To mark the unveiling of the series, Reis is publishing a book, which showcases the series and includes an essay written by the head of the Art History Department at the Glassell School of Art/MFAH, Dr. Anna Tahinci. Dr. Tahinci will present a talk on the paintings at 6:30 p.m. the evening of the unveiling.

Digital Embracing deals with constant metamorphoses and transformation by studying the relationship between computer art and the use of the hand, microcosm and macrocosm, fragments and unity (the whole), figuration and abstraction. What appears simple is in fact complex and multi-layered.

The series consists of 29 paintings characterized by bright colors and geometric shapes. Within the series there is an initial “donor piece” and seven sub-series made up of four paintings. Reis experiments with digital media exclusively to discover the course of the first seven pieces, further she bases each new work on a work created before. Kelyne Reis is “embracing” digital modification, both literally and metaphorically (The donor piece “DIGITAL EMBRACE -The Simplicity of a A Gesture” represents the fingers of two hands uniting in an embrace).

Kelyne Reis is an international artist whose works are owned by private collectors, as well corporations, in the United States, Germany, and Brazil. Based on the cosmopolitan playfulness of Reis’ work, as well as its explorations of color and geometry, and also her experimentation with 3D media and textile design, Dr. Tahinci identifies her as “our 21st century Sonia Delaunay.” This series showcases the new works of an artist taking great risks and working at the height of her powers after years or study and experimentation.
