NYIT students and staff were given a unique opportunity to display their talent in this year’s “Summer in the City” exhibition at the university’s NYIT Gallery 61 in Manhattan. Drawing from personal and historical inspirations, the exhibit includes everything from concept drawings to designer ad campaigns, and pop-up books to pinhole photographs.
Arezoo Moseni and Stephen Cox discussed their work with students at NYIT on April 11, 2014. Their work is currently on display at Gallery 61 in an exhibit titled Luminescent Progressions. The exhibit will run through May 7, 2014. Arezoo originally received much attention through her handmade photographs using 19th Century photography processes such as Kallitype and Vandyke. Stephen Cox a graduate of the Columbus College of Art and Design says his work was influenced by painters like Mark Tobey and Keith Haring.
This exhibition marks the first duel solo show of the two artists. The work exemplifies the artists’ continued fascination with light, color, form and motion. The couple lives and creates in upper Manhattan where their urban environment has a profound influence on the work they make. The level of their productivity is impressive considering their full-time jobs, daily commutes and other life demands. It is exhilarating to see their abundant energy as they produce fresh and engaging work despite the setbacks.
Trajectories, an exhibition of work of artists, Cora Jane Glasser and Greg Lamarche. Native New Yorkers, both artists use the urban environment as their muse, giving rise to subtle visual similarities to be found in structure and color- yet both have taken their own unique paths- “trajectories”, if you will- to arrive at very different modes of expression.
Exhibition dates are January 20 – February 13, 2014

The NYIT students of Architecture, Design and Fine Art began their projects with drawings about their ideas; be it the water flow systems in Red Hook, observing the devastation in Sandy’s wake, designing modular furniture for a “green zone”, or inventing cubist-style forms that morph into everyday objects depicted in the murals. The architecture and design drawings are made with graphite, markers, ink, auto cad and photo shop mostly done on vellum. Complementing the drawings are conceptual and finished models, made with Lucite, illustration board and wood. What is interesting to see are the pieces of laser cut images discarded by the students which have now been salvaged and installed in the exhibition. The Fine Arts students began their process by drawing an object of their choice to show their ability to depict observed reality. The instructor enlarged those drawings and collaged parts of them together to create one composite image. A grid was imposed on it to form rectangular segments. The students collaborated by enlarging each grid into panels which were pieced together to complete the three murals.

Viviane Rombaldi Seppey
Mirror of our time - The seductive images of fashion magazines are today’s reference of an idealized notion of beauty. In the magazines, faces tend to look similar, toward a glamorous self and a floating notion of sexual identity. This drove me to begin my collages by cutting the eyes and mouth, in order to cancel the signs of individuality. The disquieting compositions echo the multi layered world we are in.
The Jaali Series was inspired by my Indian residency. The work is done with gouache, pencil and bindi dots. The paint is applied with a thin brush that is used for miniature paintings in Rajasthan. Jaali is a term used for the perforated stone with an ornamented pattern that can be seen in palaces, forts and some residencies in Rajasthan. Often used as a screen, women could look outside their world without being seen.
The Belonging Series explores the concept of identity and mobility. I use phone book pages from countries I have lived in. These collages take the form of cultural references specific to the country of origin where the phone books were taken; a quilt pattern represents America, aboriginal art for Australia, mosaic for Italy, lacemaking from Switzerland. The work is about my migrating life and relationships between individuals, places and memory.
Shredded - Collected with the patience of a forensic scientist, paper stripes emerge from my discarded documents, notes and paper artworks reinvent their own wheel of time.
Winter of Will is an offspring of my oil paintings. I collect and slice the paper rags used to clean my brushes and stitch the paper pieces into various grids.
Kitchen art is a continuing series of sticker collages that I began many years ago. They are based on products I have consumed, museums I have visited, and other labels that make their way into my life. By collecting and arranging the material, I am sensitive to the discarded details of everyday life and to the patterns of my consumption.
The Boxes are visual Haiku; small, dense arrangements of found items whose traces are too easily disregarded. Bright, refreshing and unexpected, these constructions reward the eye and spark the imagination.
