By East City Art Editorial Team on October 1, 2012

Honfleur Gallery will show the work of three artists at (e)merge

Marsha Staiger
Cyril Anguelids
Steven Pearson

The (e)merge art fair is located at 10 Eye ST SW, Washington DC, 20024.  Honfleur is located in room 225.  The (e)merge art fair kicks off on Thursday October 4 and closed Sunday October 7. A complete fair schedule can be found here.

Marsha Staiger paints colorful abstractions that often utilize motifs of stripes and patches which come together in rhythmic compositions. At (e)merge, Honfleur Gallery is presenting works from her “R&B” series of paintings made on wooden beams. Stiager maintains a studio at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, Virginia.

Cyril Anguelidis‘ large scale urban landscapes are portrayed with a mixture of photographically-based digital painting; creating vibrant, urban street scenes. The boundaries of real and fictional are blurred as the images overlay and become woven of the same fabric. The raw energy of Anguelidis’ imagery is a successful counterpoint to the sophisticated technology used to create these artworks. Anguelidis maintains a studio in Paris.

Steven Pearson is an abstract painter focusing on mid-sized to large paintings that investigate the complexities of color and space. Of his work Pearson writes, “Each painting possesses a layered history: As new statements are juxtaposed next to or on top of earlier ones, the paintings begin to suggest the manner in which we store memories or assimilate and make sense of information.” An Associate Professor at McDaniel College in Westminster, MD, Pearson keeps studios on campus and at the Oliver Street Studios in Baltimore.
