“Space, Time & Love: The 3 Dimensions of Life”
Paintings by Steven Wright
About the Artist and the Exhibition
- Marty Ray, Exhibition Curator

The Milde Gallery’s current exhibition, “Space, Time & Love: The 3 Dimensions of Life,” with art by Steven Wright needs more attention than a passing glance at color, texture and design. An example is the fluorescent green painting titled “Schrodinger’s Cat.” This work reflects Physicist Erwin Schrodinger’s thought experiment referred to as “Schrodinger’s Cat”, a theory often included in discussions about quantum mechanics. Another work is titled, “Schrodinger’s Cat Meets Picasso.” These and other works in the exhibition contain evidence of Steven’s love for science and music mingled with a later life exploration of painting.

Steven Wright’s artist statement begins, “As a child, I had two passions… music and science fiction.” Early interests led to a Bachelor’s Degree in Music and proficiency with several musical instruments. Also says Wright, “fascination with science fiction led to a life-long study of physics.” And then he states, “At age 50, I began painting.”

Fifteen years ago, the artist read a book igniting the concept for this exhibition. Twin Dimensions: Inventing Time and Space by Geza Szamosi is a history of physics and man’s study of space and time. The book’s author proposed that visual art was man’s interpretation of physical space and music the representation of time. With these thoughts in mind, over time, Steven Wright has developed this body of work, giving us an exhibition that sparks thinking beyond the art we see with our eyes only.

The exhibition is fascinating and different. All the visual elements are here as well as experimentation with art technique and materials. And then there is so much more. Wright helps us “see” more by including detailed information cards beside each work. Wright concludes in his artist statement, “Throughout our history, we have attempted to understand the infinite through our minds (science) our hearts (art) and our souls (music). These paintings represent a conversation about space and time… and love, the genesis of all creation.”

“Space, Time & Love: The 3 Dimensions of Life” with paintings by Steven Wright is on exhibit at the Goldmark Cultural Center’s John H. Milde Gallery July 19 - Aug. 23, 2019. Reception for the artist will be Saturday, August 17, 2-4pm. The artist will give a presentation in the gallery beginning at 3pm (including Steven’s music as well).

F.R.E.E An Art Exhibit

Goldmark Cultural Center is pleased to present a group exhibition of new works featuring 11 African American artists from the Dallas area.  

“The Flagrant Rules of Ensued Emancipation” (F.R.E.E.)

Showing, Friday, June 14th to Friday, July 12th, 2019 in the John H. Milde Gallery at 13999 Goldmark Drive, Dallas, Texas, 75240.

Gallery hours are 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Mon-Fri.  Saturday showings are by appointment only.

Artist Reception - Sunday, June 23, 2019 from 3-6 pm.

The exhibit is curated by Missy Burton and Evita Tezeno.

The flagrant rules of ensued emancipation are an enigma. This body of work will attempt to explore the concept of relative freedom in all of its actuality.

Featuring works by Missy Burton, Aileen Collins, Jennifer Cowley, Valerie Gillespie, Tyra Goodley, J. LeShae, Kanyi Muraguri, Tschaner Sefas, Evita Tezano, Terrell Weathersby and The Unknown.

The works will feature photography, charcoals, mixed media, metals, paintings & multi-media.

The inspiration for this exhibit came when Evita and I were approached by the Goldmark to do a show commemorating “Juneteenth”, an American holiday that celebrates the June 19, 1865 announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas.  Personally, I’ve always wondered how it got to be a celebration considering Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation 2.5 years prior on January 1, 1863. 

Then, Evita and I started talking about how the news would have been received by slaves.  How would you feel if you found out you were free 2.5 years after everyone else had been notified?  How would you even know what it means to be free if you had never been free before?  What is our perception of freedom today?  We knew just by our conversation alone, that we had a lot to explore here and that the possibilities were endless.  Evita and I are very excited about this exhibit!

Artist Statement   
Chain Stories

I became preoccupied with chains a few years ago as a metaphor for constraint and restriction.  In Chain StoriesI I continue to regard them in a broader sense, not just in terms of confinement, but also as a means of attachment, support, adornment… connections made.  In most works the chain motif is obvious.   A few pieces refer to psychological/emotional/non visible connections.  The links are implied, but surely as strong.   

Through portraiture and narrative I am looking at relationships and states of being, lessons learned and their impact on the self.   Images are bound in frames or strung out as wall jewelry, or a combination of the two.  Chain swags create dialogs about separation and attachment, or become wall necklaces with their own tales to tell.  Free standing vessels, sewn and sutured, allow glimpses of interior, insular selves, safe and protected in hard shells.  Placement and pedestals complete the story.   

I hope to provoke or inspire the viewer to examine their own inner self and the chains in their life.   Enjoy!
