440 Gallery Announce The Panoramic Landscape: new color-saturated work by digital impressionist Jay Friedenberg

. May 31, 2016

Brooklyn, NY — 440 Gallery is pleased to present the second solo show by Jay Friedenberg, featuring large-scale panoramic scenes from around the globe.

Friedenberg’s artwork is a combination of traditional and modern photographic techniques that is enhanced by digital effects to create vivid color and compositions. His images explore diverse places such as the French coastline and the canyons of the American Southwest. California marinas are rendered with Seurat-like pointillism, while imaginative melting clouds are portrayed in a sky from Barbados.

The Panoramic Landscape is on view from June 2nd through July 3rd, 2016; opening reception is Saturday, June 4th from 6-9pm. To celebrate this show, classical guitarist Carlos Pavan will perform at the gallery on June 25th at 4:40 pm.

Friedenberg approaches his art as a “digital impressionist”, he is influenced by colorists and fauvists such as Louis Griffel and Andre Derain, to name a few. By applying computer software and filters to the vibrant colors and styles of Impressionism, Friedenberg creates a unique interplay between modern and old. His work captures the essence of a location—twinkling Manhattan lights, purple desert mountain sunsets—with memorable, strong color, shapes and textures that are emphasized by the strong horizontal format of his landscapes.

Jay’s work has been awarded first place in the 2015 Contemporary Art Gallery Online Cityscapes contest and as a finalist at the 2016 Exhibitions Without Walls competition. His work has been written about in The Poughkeepsie Journal, The Greenwich Times and The Pinyon Review. Additional information about the artist and his artwork can be found at BigAppleArts.com

440 Gallery is located at 440 Sixth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn, between 9th and 10th Streets, and is convenient to the F, G, and R subways. The gallery is open on Thursday and Friday, 4-7pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 11am – 7pm, or by appointment.
