Artist Dina Brodsky teamed up with curator Trek Lexington to host a group exhibition titled Point of Origin, at The Lodge Gallery in New York City. The exhibition is comprised solely of paint palettes that have been transformed into artworks.
The idea came to Brodsky when she completed a series of miniature paintings two years ago. She became intrigued by the tools used in her artistic process. Turning to the palette she had used, Dina began experimenting with the series’ colors until the palette became an artwork of its own.
She then noticed that a fellow artist friend had done the same thing, but with vastly different results. This sparked an investigation into other artists’ palettes and how each might create an artwork from their own. She invited both strangers and friends to begin experimenting with their palettes.
Other artists began to share their palette paintings on social media. The palette paintings began to form a conversation amongst artists all over the globe.
“Every artist has a unique mind, and a deeply personal, often idiosyncratic studio practice… The palette is the point of origin from which ideas become realized and paint is transformed into a reflection of the human experience. Whatever shape or form the surface or substrate takes, it all begins when brush meets palette.” – The Lodge Gallery website
The special exhibition is on display at The Lodge Gallery in NYC from October 13th to November 13th. Not to be missed!
