The differences between Craig Kraft and I become clearly apparent, both through medium and stages in our careers. Craig’s Neon’s have developed through a consistent evolution and over the span of 30 years, he has established himself as a cutting edge artist in the Washington D.C. area. My work on the other hand, is at is early stages and has been synthesized through my initial interactions with Washington D.C. in the year since the completion of my MFA at the Maryland Institute.
Nonetheless, similar explorations in terms of form, light, and color have resulted in an interesting and stimulating exhibition, where the artworks enact catalytic and complementary relationships with each other and the unique architecture of the gallery itself.
The reception on June 6, 2012 gave an insight into the works and the process behind their creation while serving as the opening statement in an exhibition with an ongoing dialogue.
Titled “Unintentional Drawings, Neon by Craig Kraft & Confluence, Paintings by Camilo Sanín” it displays two neon sculptures by Craig Kraft as well as five of my latest paintings.
For everyone who couldn’t make it to the opening: the artworks are on exhibit through September 12, so just drop by 505 9th Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20004, take a look. And enjoy the conversation.
