“Up Close” exhibition of art by Jimmy Chiale – February 4th – 26th, 2017

“Up Close” exhibition of art by Jimmy Chiale – February 4th – 26th, 2017

Meet the artist Saturday February 4 from 2-4pm at COBALT GALLERY

“There is no message in my art. My art is personal. It’s a print of my creative brain cells. It’s the emotion I feel in that present moment. I want people to see beauty through it and juice up the imagination through their visual abilities. When I look at my paintings I see a puke of emotions on canvas. I see balance in my creations. I’m inspired by life and the polarity in being a human being. Life and death, love and anger, chaos and harmony.

This collection gets you up close and personal into the mind of Jimmy Chiale. It’s a microscopic view of my paintings and allows you to see the simplicity and detail in the chaos. “Up Close” allows you to feel a distinct emotion in each individual piece.” (Jimmy Chiale)

A New Experience –  March 4th to 26th, 2017


For Maren Boedeker, painting is a materialized thinking process, a visualization of an inner conversation inscribed on the canvas.

Her source of inspiration is the diversity of life: people, encounters, incidents, nature, landscapes, atmospheres, colours, sounds, textures and the materiality of painting itself. She uses a wide spectrum of tools, media and experimental techniques to create a complex visual language. These lively constructs do not deliver a concrete depiction of visual reality but capture physical experience, interlacing memory and perception. It is up to the viewer to decipher and interpret and to form his or her own viewpoint.
