Christopher Engel’s new exhibit debuted at Romany Kramoris Gallery on June 5, 2014. The selection of abstract work, titled “Open Paths,” will run until June 26, 2014.
Engel’s abstract work is inspired by the interaction between light and water he witnessed during his summers spent off the coast of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. During this time, he recorded his observations of the interplay. The lines and arcs created by this remarkable, natural interaction are reminiscent of the ancient markings of our ancestors. “Open Paths” is inspired by light and water relationships, which he observed from his Sag Harbor studio overlooking Long Pond.
These abstract works involve simple lines that bend into triangles of burnt orange, yellow, red, green, and gold. To the viewer, viewing his work is similar to peering through a microscope at dancing colorful molecules. The work then encourages the viewer to ponder and allow the journey to unfold.
Engel’s work is part of many art collections from New York City to the East End, as well as on a larger scale in places on the East and West Coasts and Europe. Over the last twelve years, Engel has gained significant recognition as an artist, and Romany Kramoris Gallery has enjoyed the privilege of displaying his work for the last seven years.
The Gallery is open 7 days a week, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and open until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
Romany Kramoris Gallery is located at 41 Main Street in Sag Harbor. For more information, call 631-725-2499 or visit www.kramorisgallery.com.
