Doubles, a two-person exhibit featuring artists Damian Stamer and Yvonne Robert, will be on display at the George Gallery and online from Dec. 3-26.
Stamer, a painter based in Durham, has had his work displayed all over the world. His paintings depict an abstract view of landscapes in the Carolinas. His art in Doubles will continue to portray his surroundings, manipulating the concept of home and place.
“Old dilapidated barns continue to fascinate me because they embody the passage of time, the reality that everything is constantly changing,” Stamer wrote in a press release. “These ruins are, like us, soaked with impermanence.”
His artwork will be accompanied by Yvonne Robert’s colorful work. Taking a minimalistic approach to each object she paints, Robert’s art is a peaceful addition to Doubles.
“I’d like my paintings to have a strong presence,” Robert said in a public statement. “They should fascinate the viewer, convey a feeling. I’m always looking for compositions and colors that create tension with maximum reduction.” Her paintings have been featured in galleries throughout London, Paris, New York and Sydney.
