After a decade of consistently presenting an internationally recognized program in La Jolla, Madison Gallery is expanding to a second location in the Cedros Design District of Solana Beach. The grand opening on Saturday, May 26th 2018 from 6-9 p.m. features its inaugural exhibition, New Generation, with artists James Verbicky and Olivia Steele and is sponsored by KARMA Automotive, Modern Luxury Magazine, FIT Gym, GEM&BOLT Mezcal, Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty and beats by Josh Hartley. This exhibition reflects on the instinctual intercommunication between artist and viewer and how methods of conversation are constantly evolving; yet the message remains the same. Words are power and bring new light to newer generations.
The three dimensional surfaces of Canadian born artist, James Verbicky’s mixed-media works transcend traditional painting and venture into the realm of sculpture. By utilizing vintage media and graphics, advertisements, and obsolete branding materials, Verbicky presents us with the result of decades of attempts to persuade, manipulate, and coerce through subtle and suggestive imagery. His works are at once deeply conceptual and hauntingly beautiful and abstract, capturing both forgotten and persisting icons of media and reminding us that we are all constantly being influenced.
KARMA Automotive partners with artists like Verbicky, who share the company's trailblazing and innovative DNA. For his work on the Karma Revero, Verbicky used hand-painting and stencil techniques to apply meticulous layers of color and follow the sensuous lines of the car's body. Verbicky's color fields, evocative language, and symbolic imagery are used to accentuate and emphasize the soul of the Karma Revero. The result is a vehicle art piece that is modern yet timeless.
