Lorca presents... Mini Paintings by Cris Dam

Lorca presents

Mini Paintings by Cris Dam

Saturday, 2 November 2013
125 Bedford St., Stamford, CT

Lorca is pleased to present Mini Paintings by Cris Dam, an exhibition of over twenty recent oil paintings that will run through January 2014. These intimate works on clayboard will join Dam’s permanent wall mural at Lorca, creating a rich aesthetic dialogue between the design elements of the space and the installation of art.

Dam cofounded Dam, Stuhltrager Gallery in 1998 and was an early gallerist and artist to propel Williamsburg, Brooklyn, into an international art mecca. Born in Alaska, raised in Spain, educated in New York City, and currently raising a family in Connecticut, Dam unites diverse landscapes with universal patterns found everywhere in nature to connect all cultures. Taking root in organic abstraction, he combines exotic imagery with Pop colors and modern lines, and his use of color-blending creates infinite depth out of simple silhouettes.
Last fall, the American Embassy in Berlin, Germany, commissioned Dam to create a mural for the 5’ x 60’ entrance walls of ├ľkozentrum Park and a 60’ mural facing the entrance of Kunsthalle Bethanian. Other recent projects include Paradigm Shift, The WYE, Berlin (2013); a 40’ mural for OneSpark, Jacksonville, Florida (2013); Scene & Heard, re:MADE, Brooklyn (2013); Time Keeper, Empire Project, Istanbul (2012); CYLAND, IMAL, Brussels (2012); and inclusion in group exhibits at The WYE, Berlin, and the Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia (2012).

Dam recently collaborated with Chouchette in Turkey, a company pairing contemporary artists with traditional artisans in Tokat. His limited-edition handbags will be available at Lorca during the exhibition.

Lorca is a specialty coffee shop and small exhibit space in downtown Stamford that opened in the fall of 2012. For all press inquiries, please call (203) 504-2847.
