Jan 30 – Apr 25, 2010
FusionArts Museum is proud to present a solo exhibit of selected works by New York fusion artist Shalom Neuman. The work spans the years 1966 through January, 2010 and is meant to be a very brief overview of a career that spans more than 40 years.
Called an “unprecedented phenomenon” by distinguished art critic Donald Kuspit, Ph.D., Shalom pursued and accomplished a methodology for the seamless integration or “fusion” of all artistic disciplines long before there was any interest in creating art that was both multi disciplinary and multi sensory.
The artist sees his work as a language which speaks directly to American culture with its chaos, conflict, waste and utter confusion. The addition of erratic audio and garish incandescent light adds to the overall mayhem of the art. The totality of these pieces – their conceptual message, the materials used and the methodology – speaks to the reality of our world as we know it and experience it. This truly is significant contemporary art for our troubled times.
